I'm not a fan of letting the tires air dry, they just become more sticky.

When I tried Blue rears I had more traction with those then I did with yellows, graylow, or grays. The grays felt like the car was on top of the carpet, not bogged in it, if that makes sence.
Thx, I will give it a try.

Default servo??

Hey Guys,
building my altered ego chassis and I currently have a Savox SH-1275MG and I think i am going to have issues making it fit without taking some carbon fiber off (which I totally don't wanna do!!!)

any suggestions on a servo that fits perfectly would be greatly appreciated!!!

Did you mount it between the front suspension or behind it like Wayne mounted his?

between the front,

but even with the transverse conversion, i though of putting it on opposite side. But the chassis hole where the servo would mount was in the incorrect position thus making the servo spline offset.. not sure if its different on the alterego main chassis. so just left if up front

Nice job Dennis!
Glad the set up worked for you!

I was testing over the weekend on a new layout and the only thing I tried was stiffer rear side springs and increased dampening. The carpet is pretty new and the layout went over areas we haven't run on yet. So there was a very small amount of fuzzies if you went out of the groove. You would loose a slight bit of stearing during the race. The increased dampening and stiffer side springs worker well. I tried a stiffer center shock spring, but that didn't feel as good.
