Any advice appreciated.
Thanks.
Do you put any grease/green slime on the gasket before you seal it up?

Use green slime from associated to lube the o-rings and gasket. And be careful when tightening the diff.

Green slime is a team associated grease. I use it for shock orings, gaskets etc. It helps seal things up

What springs do you recommend versus standard ones?
I read these Yeah springs http://www.rcmart.com/yeah-racing-p-...?cPath=389_443 should be fine.
I should target 12-15lbs/in.
How stiff is the rating if standard pink ones?

Does it really improve car handling?
I have the same feeling that the standard spring are too tall.

Yes, 00000000 recommended the TRF springs and I will say that they have been very good. I'm using 2nd stiffest in the front and the middle spring at the rear.
But I have no idea what rate they are..

I keep thinking about getting the carbon chassis and top deck.
I'm still learning, so I doubt the std ones are holding me back at the moment. But I keep improving the car and it gets easier to drive too. So..?

Default Servo recommendation and gearing.

Hey everyone I just got my xi sport. What servo do you guys recommend? Also I have a 21.5 motor so I was curious what you guys have the gearing on it set to and if I need to get new gears for it. Thanks

My son's Sakura is pulling left under heavy acceleration.
At constant speed, the car is going straight.

I have checked the transmission (CVD) and everything is OK
From a setting standpoint (shock, toe, camber, spring, droop....) the right and left are perfectly identic.

However when I put the chassis (after removing wheels and shocks) on a glass table, the rear right is not on the table (rear left and front right and left are perfectly on the table). So I suspect the chassis to be slightly tweaked.

My question is how to fix it?

Have the battery and everything in the car, remove the wheels. Put the chassis on a flat glass top or straight table / wood / board.

Undo the top deck screws (which will release the tweak, most of it if any)

Undo the shock tower screws that bolt to the bulkhead. First push down on the center of the shock towers and tighten them accordingly. Then have a straight bar go from shock tower to shock tower and gently push down... and tighten the top deck screws in a X type pattern. This should be done almost every round especially if the car is off the boards a lot.

I would then check droop, camber, toe, ride height etc

Also check the spring perches, if one needs to be cranked way down versus the other side you my have more to look at. Check before and after you correct the tweak
