there are 6 holes in the servo saver why not use one of the other 5 if your servo fouls

Better than the T3 12

What did you do to the shock collars?
I've got a set of ride springs I dont really want to part with yet...

So let me ask why do some not use the o-ring at the bottom?
If you're talking about the O-ring on the setup sheets, it isn't the O-ring in the shocks, it's an O-ring on the bottom of the shock shaft to limit up travel in an attempt to reduce grip roll, you used to sometimes see it on carpet setups.

Thanks

I don't think its an issue with the car, just one more reason out of many to not use a savox

Like this. Use a servo post with a grub screw at the end of it, then screw the post into the spare hole in the bulkhead, then just screw a fan to the post. Perfectly positioned.

Does it actually blow like a tornado.

I feel that the small yeah racing Tornado fans would be just as powerful yet 3 times smaller. I could be wrong

these fans cost 3 each though! Plus they are 5v so when you have 8.4v running through them they do certainly whizz!!

That's the highest airflow 40mm fan I have yet found (still looking for stuff that's faster) It is 20mm deep and is a lot faster than the standard LRP fan.
8.1CFM
It's 5V so it needs to run off the receiver.

Haven't found a 5V fan that can push more air than that
