Get all your links (Camber and Steering) equal and check again using set up tools or set up wheels at the least. the plastic wheels we race with seem to have a bit of run out normally so any measurements with those will be inaccurate. Things should be pretty close at that point. As you change camber the toe will change a bit as well so if the camber is not equal the toe will likely be off a bit as well. Even with all the links equal right to left you still might have to adjust a tiny bit but there shouldn't be large differences left to right unless something else is messed up. Good luck.

I'm thinking u might not have put same shims behind hinge pin mounts on both sides of car that's the only thing that would throw off camber & toe angles if tirod lengths r same

Figured out my toe/camber issues.. I didn't pay close enough attention to the direction of the suspension holders. Newbie mistake..

Corrected them and everything is now good.

Default Panaracer Spurs

Can anyone advise if Panaracer Spurs can be successfully used in a T4?

If so how did they perform?

How about these http://www.speedtechhobbies.com/inde...roduct_id=2309

It says they fit the T3, but it doesn't look like these are offset like xray gears.

I need a servo saver insert for a Futaba/Savox. Does anyone know if it's possible to purchase just the insert or do I have to buy the entire servo saver assembly for $20+?

Thanks!
Tommy

In my opinion those gears are weak, I've seen many cars stripping those in the middle of the race than any other brand. I guess because they are so thin there there's no room for little play in the gear mesh before they get ruined. You have to be sure your motor is shimmed perfectly (rotor).Also, if you're running 17.5 you'll want 92t or 96t spurs.

Anyone interested in trading their closed layshaft holders for my open ones? I am wanting to try the rear screw removal setup.

I run the open ones without those screws in mod, works fine on mid-high grip asphalt. Worst case you loose one spur gear.

How would it effect the car in a high grip carpet situation?

If you're talking about the pivot block mounts, then the front/rear split blocks definitely won't as the holes for them are across the chassis, where the old '13 holes are longitudinal along the chassis.

I *think* the other blocks might be OK as I seem to recall when attaching my protective sticker on the bottom of the chassis that at least some of the screws lined up.
