So it should accommodate most any electric scale servo.
I tried using my S9550, but the servo horn won't line up with the chassis center. Is gluing my only option?

Was there a date when the hop up dampers will make it state-side?

The width of that servo is the same as a mini servo, (1.30") so yes, you will need to use servo tape to mount it.
I also run a seam of shoe goo along the back side of the servo for a more solid mount.

[QUOTE=addicted2blue;10366485]Today i received the alu roll&pitch dampers for the RM-01, below are some pictures and aswell of the manuals.

I noticed you are using the 540 and Life. Have you tried the kit 380? Its not a normal 380 as Tamiya has tuned it a bit and runs about the same as the 540.
WE are running Tamiya 380-S motors and small 2 cell Lipo`s. Speeds are the same as 540 F1 with Life.

I've been running the 380 yes, but the 540 was just for testing. In the mean time i have mounted the 380 back in the car
I will try to run the car with a small 1/18th lipo battery, just to see how the speed will be.

I'm using the IP 1600mah 2S 40C pack. I think it's intended for 1/18th cars, but it works fine in the RM-01.
To hold the battery in place I screwed together some old plastic servo posts and right angle parts from an M03 C- parts tree. It required 2 holes to be drilled and countersunk in the chassis, but it seems to work pretty well. I can take the pack in and out quickly without using any glass tape which suits me

Looks like a good fit, what type of run times are you getting?

Can anyone tell me if the body shell will fit the older version of the 84C, I know the wing mount is different but how does it line up in general ?

I'll have to check on the weekend again, but from memory it took around 1000mah after a 6 minute race.

The body shell is identical to the original.

Thanks to my brother, George, for filming the video.
Watching your car at the Tamiya track reminds me of the old days of running pan car at the Ranch Pit Shop.

Thats absolutely classic. Which one and what SPF rating was it?
