Has anyone run the exotek conversion on carpet? I was wondering how this worked on carpet since it is 2.25mm vs the 2.5 that I have been running.

I've got a bit of play in my steering and it seems to get worse at full lock.
Anybody got ideas on how to solve this, or should I just not worry about it?

It feels like quite a bit, maybe 3-4mm?

Question about the anti-roll bar. No matter what I do to the mounting set screws or adjusting the set screws by the end of the bar, left and right just have uneven reaction. All arms go up&down freely. However, when lift up left, right will come up; but life up right, left only moves a little (shocks off).

Front 1.4 and rear 1.2 bar, similar case. How do I fix it? thanks!

Something is off with the suspension. One side has a slightly bent pin, a ball cup dragging, droop screw dug into the chassis, bent sway bar, something must be slightly off. It doesn't take much to have this happen at all and often the arms will look very free but if you look hard enough you'll find something just a bit off.

Had the same problem, and when I was on the straight the car wouldn't go straight. Checked everything that day and couldn't find it, when I got home I was determined to find it. After 10-15 minutes and taking things apart the conclusion was the spool outdrives were loose, the screws were backing out and now it's fine

Is there any upgrade from the T4 that you would recomend for the T3. It drives great but it might get even better. I was thinking about putting on the t4 steering.. So is it worth it and will it fit?

I have been curious about this conversion too. Have not heard anything about it either.

If you want an upgrade that gives a noticeable performance lift, try this.

Have not tried it on carpet. I have drove rcguyfpr on pavement and was sold on it. It was the best handling car ever. I gave it throttle in turns trying to break it loose and it wouldnt. Arms move very free and no binding in suspension what so ever. Just put mine together and have coppied my friends set up. I will try it this weekend.
