Any particular reason you converted to normal suspension instead of just keeping ars in a neutral setting, if that's even possible?

I don't glue my chassis, but I do sand and smooth the edges.
The hudy/ xray ecs are good, but they will bend or break in a hard hit just like everything else. The rsd ecs shafts are a good option as well and are much more budget friendly. I've run both and neither fell apart or came undone.

For the price and durability, I prefer the Roche, Tamiya, or RSD DCJ's. The retaining pin rings seem to be better than other options for holding the pins in while providing least amound of joint binding. The spring steel versions tend to bend less and last longer.

Very nice outdrives, first time seeing them

Using the "ARS" version rear suspension with no durability issues, but alot of testing still needed to see if they will actually provide any performance gain over the stock A-Arm configuration.

Do the Tamiya DCJs fit without any mods?

Quick question to all the Savöx users here:

Which letter insert do I need for the Xray servo saver?

Not that I am aware of, had to use aftermarket outdrives (Smokem Racing).

Does anyone make a chassis protective sticker for the T4 '15?

This one should work too, though you'll have to trim it yourself: http://www.discountrcstore.com/epic1...mor_s/1328.htm

Why do you use a protective sticker?

On carpets the chassis doesn't get scratched that much and on asphalt the hard surface will tear through the sticker anyway.
