I used Mugen mbx5 ball links, they seem to stay tight forever, nice and free up & down.

I run Ultra GTP2 with rear PBS suspension much easier to adjust toe in on the fly for more or less traction.

Default Did I buy the wrong servo?

Guys,

I've got a servo question for you. I bought the DM-1 Spec e and I went ahead and bought the Hitec HS-7940TH servo. After a little more research, I'm worried that I should have bought the HS-7945TH instead.

HS-7940TH Specs
Speed (6.0V/7.4V): 0.07 / 0.06
Torque oz./in. (6.0V/7.4V): 181 / 222

HS-7945TH Specs
Speed (6.0V/7.4V): 0.12 / 0.10 second @ 60
Torque oz./in. (6.0V/7.4V): 250 / 319


Does the HS-7940TH have enough torque?

Where is everyone buying their gears,unfortunately Ofna only makes a 17(largest) tooth pinion and a 47(smallest) spur gear,Kimbrough and Robinson don't do any.I am looking for maybe a 22 pinion and 44 spur gear Mod.1Thanks,Huck.

What were you looking for any suggestion?
What exactly has to be done to the gear holder to accept the smaller 44,45,46 tooth spur gears?. Pics would be great if possible. Thanks,Huck

Hi: I am trying to find out where everyone is aquiring their smaller 44,45,46 spur gears,but seems to be a big secret,lol! Also, can I modify the gear holder with normal household tools,or do I need to use a lathe? Hope someone can help! Thanks,Huck

You would use a mill not a lathe,lathe is for round, mill is for slots and such.
If you had some good files you could enlogate the motor mounting holes and slide the motor away from the spur.

Thanks,but the gear holder that needs to be modified is round,so a lathe is needed or a rotary table for a milling machine,to reduce the diameter of the hub to fit the smaller bore of the 44,45,46 spur gears. Elongating the motor mounting slots won't make any difference as to whether or not the smaller bore of the spur will fit the gear holder.Thanks

Sorry thought you said motor mount, yes a lathe for the gear holder, or a rotary table for a mill,I would use a lathe over the mill,Ive done the gtp2 on my lathe no problem, easier to setup then my rotary table on my mill

Which servo is everyone using? I need one for my new DM-1 Spec E car. Tried a Savox SC1232SG and it's too deep and hits the chassis before being tightened down. Thanks,Huck
