That's awesome! Always good to see good products get the exposure they deserve.

He's going to like the car but it too bad Hobao does not have all the other classes for him to race. I'm sure he will drive it just as fast as the other cars but you know you have a good product if a top driver like Atsushi wants to try it out.

ran mine with M chassis TRF shock tonight, didnt feel any different really than a freshly built standard shock set, but knowing these shocks are not gonna leak on me gave me some hope

even heard "fastest lap car 5" on the timing gear!

I crashed turning right at the track now every time the tire is on and I turn right the whole drive train vibrate hard I disassembled the whole front right suspension and don't see a problem but once I put the tire on the I have the same problem not sure what it is but nothing looks broke or out of shape when the tire is off it run fine and smooth but as soon as I put any tire on and turn right it vibrates crazy. I'm thinking of just buying a new C hub set and steering knuckle set. Any thoughts?

You might want to check the wheel it might be hitting the ribs, it happens to me with my buggy when I run certain wheels but I wouldn't think it would happen to sedans but check that.

It was fine until I crashed prior to that it was smooth. The tires are rubbing but I don't know what to replace to stop the rubbing.

Check for a possible cracked wheel and make sure your tires are still glued on properly. For sedan, I generally check the CA on my tires every 5-6 runs.

try checking all the bearings too, the crash may have popped a seal and/or shimming may be needed if the plastic has a gap that wasn't there before the crash

Thanks for the help guys, but I think I found out the problem was when I crashed it, I posssibly broke my servo HS-5645MG (that the guy at the store told me I wouldn't) but it locks harder in one direction than the other when I dropped the travel to 70% its locking even on both sides and it dosent vibrate when turning to either side.

I purchased this hitec servo because I was told I wouldn't brake it and also was informed that Savox servos does not work well its specktrum receivers. Is this true?

pop off the cover from your servo and inspect for stripped gears, on some brands of servos, I've had luck by simply rotating the stripped gear by 180 to get it working just as good as new, depending on which gear was stripped.

Hitec offers top notch service for their servos, they actually make service repairs. I've been burned in the past by Savox USA, they refused to do any service work outside of warranty (stripped gears are not covered under warranty either) and they sent me to contact Savox Global (Taiwan) who never responded after several attempts and after 6 months went by, I gave up on Savox. I've since found Turnigy servos to work better for me, and should I strip a gear, it's just as easy to replace the servo than to mess with a warranty claim, far more cost effective and better performance (for me) than Savox in comparison:

+ YouTube Video
ERROR: If you can see this, then YouTube is down or you don't have Flash installed.



If you continue to strip servo gears over time, it might be worth swapping brands of servo savers until you find one that provides better protection, I've been pretty happy with Kimbrough
