It sounds like another round of 5r will be hitting retailers today and tomorrow. A-MAin, Carolinas R/C, B-Main, R/C Compound have all reported that they will be in stock.

there is about a $200 or so dollar parts list from shocks, shock towers ,chassis,
front steering up rights and linkage suspension arms....http://www.carolinasrc.com/Webstore/...idcategory=466
i have both a running prospec and an R and over the rough the r kills it. overall handleing the R is better as well.

Look at your linkage from the steering servo to the steering post. See how it has a spring wrapped around this post. This is your servo saver. By changing how tight this spring is, you change how much force is transmitted from the wheels to the steering servo. You change this by screwing the adjustment nut in or out.

If you soften the spring, you will get less direct turning and probably more understeer, but it will protect the servo better. If you harden, the opposite will happen.

Do you guys think an aluminium throttle servo horn is neccessary? Does anyone use the exhaust protecter (the piece of plastic that bolts to the left side stone guard) ?

Thanks Turbine_au. Currently my car is understeer problem and is this mean my servo saver set at soft? I got Ace DS1013 13kg @ 6v servo for steering so this mean I can try to tighten the servo sever and try it up, right?

Hey guys,
Anyone having an issue with the linkage getting stuck on the Proline CP II body?
Mine hits it all the time.
I caut the extra rod off the linkage but it still hits the body and sometimes gets stuck at 1/2 throttle for a second or two..
What am I doing wrong?
