can you just remove the carbon fiber and get a different set of servo holder instead the stock one?

This stuff coulda been through PM.

Back on track with the S411. Has anyone run stock set up on high bite yet? I drove the car a little Thursday on our med to low bite track. We treat with coke syrup on race day. The car felt good and easy to drive, just a little loose coming into corner. Im thinking its from the dust from offroad track right next to it. And has anyone broken any parts? If so, which ones? Last question. When will Amain and Stormer start stocking parts????

Have been doing a bit of running with this car now and have learn't quite a bit. The gear diff is still a bit of a question mark for me though... I now have 3000cst in there and it keeps feeling better and better to drive the heavier I go BUT I can feel the steering drop away. Has anyone tried running 4 bevel gears instead of the kit 2? What did you think?

Also... have played with kit springs a bit and I strongly recommend changing out the rear spring for something more progressive. I have been playing with the Hara springs personally but it seems a necessity to get a solid rear end. A harder front bar (or softer rear) gives the car better balance mid corner too so try a 1.6 front or 1.2 rear.

Ok thanks. Im dont wanna buy Hara springs. I have too many springs as it is. If there was one set of hara springs to buy, which ones would they be? I really like the car right out of the box. Im gonna go up on diff oil and see if that helps my loose in isssue. It might be lifting the inside rear tire causing diff-out. We will see.

BTW_ I threw it on the rug to check servo, had hard tires and no sauce(didnt even have body on) Car felt rediculously good. I sure hope its that good this winter!!!

If you have plenty of springs then run what works well for you... My only spring kit I have at the moment is for my Losi JRX-S type R which uses short springs that don't fit the S411 very well. I like the look of the Hara springs plus they have about 1.2lbs spacing which makes fine tuning better. I am currently using hard and medium but for mod I thing I will drop to soft and medium for the feel I prefer.
