That is correct. There are 2 orings per shock, so 8 total. You may use 2 of the upgraded orings, BUT they will bind for a longer period of time. It is best to use 1 new upgraded oring, and 1 new stock Losi oring. Put the upgrade in first, then the teflon washer, then the Losi oring, then the spacer and the shock end.

Well that would be hard to tell you. Every radio is different, so isnt every driver. If I were you I would get the radio manual and set it back to factory settings.

(remove the washer that is under the servo arm. that will cause more drag on the linkage.)
I noticed that also! put a small washer between the arm and the white plastic adapter. You have the right idea, I see alot of cars that look like with some flex the arm can hit the screws holding the servo down.

Red face I see.......

You can change your front throttle servo mount screws to button heads and that will clear up any problems you may have with linkage clearance. You do not need a washer.

Got some pics today of the RTR I reworked at the shop. I'll have a step by step posted soon for you RTR folks out there.

L8tr,
TEX

Thanks for the tips guys...first of all i used the washer thinking that It will let my horn go up for a few mm so my linkage will not bind from the top of the servo.....

and no i dont have any spacer from my brakepad..

do you think i should buy a new Hitec servo? thanks guys

I wish I would have stayed home. Hot Rod did not put on the show we expected. Spiti and Matt kept texting and calling me to tell me what was going on.

I reset my springs and measured, measured, measured. I finally got consistent reads on my ride height and it felt good on the track. I'll call you sometime so you can look it over for your seal of approval. Congrats on the Losi deal. I was happy to hear about that.

I thank you Eric for the reply, though that some how do'sent seem right. I do'not wish to say you are wrong, but the black bars seem like they are the biggest for the set.
