The idea is the Shoe Goo will harden and not only hold the servo to the chassis, but keep the mounts from wiggling loose in any direction through normal use. Removal, if neccessary, is quite simple... take both screws out of the bottom of the chassis and use a flatblade screwdriver to carefully remove the servo from the chassis. Its ALOT cheaper than an IRS transponder/servo mount.
mmmmm, shoe goo fix all. . ..

actually you can fit a 77.

you have to bevel the underside of the top plate slot just a little, but it does work. i was running 77/33 for awhile but had to yank the spur cause i couldnt fit a 34 pinion in there haha...

I am running an FT TC$ in a sportsman class, Johnson motor. I need to run a 5:1 ratio, so my spur/pinion gears have to be 2:1. I know this is an extreme ratio. Last weekend, I used a 68/32. My smallest spur and largest pinion, which barely meshed since I could not get the motor closer. Does anyone have suggestionfor 64 and 48 pitch combinations? Thanks.

I had the a similar problem with my team tc4 but my problem was that i counldn't get the motor away from the spur when using the 72t spur. So i used a 48 pitch 65 tooth spur gear and a 33 tooth pinion but i didn't have a problem with the ft tc4. On my ft at the moment i am using a 48p 69/37 to get a ratio of 4.6.

Hope that helps

Thank Hugh,
Iknow it sounds strange running an FT in a class lower than stock, but I need to figure this car out. I run on a smalltrack, tennis court. t just seems stock motors are too much this small track.

Default Team Drivers in Italy?

Hey all,
I've been in Scotland for the past ten days and haven't been able to keep up to speed with the worlds stuff that much. Can anyone tell me the names of the Associated drivers who are competing so I can follow the team now I'm back in Oz? ________
