It runs the receiver batteries down faster, and it beats the heck out of the servo like Davidka said. I don't know of anyone who uses ABS in their off-road cars...that's what your finger is for!

The best way I've found to stop the car from traction rolling is just to not drive into the corner so hard. This car inspires you to drive really fast, and will carry a lot more speed than a lot of other buggies, which leads many drivers to trying to go through a corner simply too fast.

Hahaha. Not driving so hard into a corner that you fly off the track is hardly a secret. I learned it the hard way.

I am not sure if the is the right thread for this post but I need help with a problem I got the buggy setup just the way I like it but I had to tighten up the front sway bay and way loosen the rear I like to leave them neutral so I can adjust them before the main if need to,,,, so do bring the sway bars back to the original position and adjust camber for more rear traction or is there a better way to get a little more on power steering and a little less of the windshield wiper affect. Thanks

Jim

When i see on these set ups for the rear hubs is there a difference between "hubs back" and "hubs all the way back"?

I've found that the stock 5-7-2 diff fluids make it push a bit too much for my taste when on power. By switching to 5-5-2, and putting 45 shock oil in the rear,(front is still 30) I have all the on power steering I want. It can get a little loose mid corner that way, but I like it, I can rotate the car at any given point.

Talking RC PRO South dominated by Losi!!!!!!!

I hear RJ Scadden laid the total (and slowest) SMACKDOWN in the A-Main. 11.5 minute pit times! His car was dialed. This was just his first GAS race. Not bad at all!

Had fun Guys.
Good to see everyone.
Thank you James for pitting and to Char for the Coffee and booking the hotel.
Nice place Mike.

These races are way too long.
The Losi did rule the day.

Aaron give a shout out to RJ (talk to his father if you really want to know what went down). He did a great job. Good things to come!

PEACE,
TEX

Sounds good Rob...

What servo you going to run will determine the return spring setup... i'll get you dialed...

Are digi servos more likely to fry than analog ones?
