Thanks for the advise, I have checked the hinge pins and changed it from front to back but same result. It has been like this since I assembled the car (new), I was affraid that it may have been assembled badly but I have checked and double checked many times to see what went wrong. Also the rear hubs are spaced equally from left to right. Is the reading on your car equal both sides?

Something is wrong

I had the same problem with my TOP at the TITC, Spoke to a few of the HB boys, and they all said there have been some dodgy rear hubs produced lately, just swap out a few different ones until you get something approx equal. Or worst case run alloy.

Is there a risk in using alloy hubs? Does it bend easily in a crash, coz with the original it will just break and can get rid of it.

Default Shoe Goo'd Servos

can you guys post pix of shoe goo'd servos and other electronics layouts?? im trying to get more room in my cyclone for my FAAST receiver, LRP TC esc and Ko Propo 2419 low profile servo...... looks like the only way to do is shoe goo the servo forward or have the receiver on top of the servo.

man i cant wait for the Ko Propo 2.4ghz system! uber tiny receiver!

You can also check the reedy race i think last year. i forgot the guy who took pictures, (i think his name is like boomer something.)

I have the same setup FAAST rvr , LRP TC., & KO servo.
I cut one of the ears on the servo. the other mounted on the servo mount
and shoo goo'd. and everything fits perfectly.

Moved my servo forward, cut the ears, and chopped the turnbuckle in the steering link, and everything fits awesome
