There's a book with big pictures in it included with the car.

Did you put the very last white bushing in correctly?

laquan,

Did yo uput any spacers on the shocks yet? What oils did you put in it? You may want to get yourself a 3 and 4 mm reamer for the arms...Mugen has TIGHT tolerances

Also, it won't rebound like the Losi does...

well, its not about speed, but torque - you want the servo that has the most torque on the steering.

At least 180 oz/in for steering and 100 oz/in for throttle and brake

Thanks for the reply. I race alot of on road and a fast steering servo has always been very important, how important is it in off road? I think the 5955 has 333 oz tourqe and .15 speed and the 5996 has 131 oz and.10 speed. Is the 5955 fast enough? Thanks again.

You want speed for steering and a torque servo for throttle. Unless your driving a monster truck, you don't need 200 oz of torque for steering.



Laquan, pull the shocks off and double check to make sure the arms are free. Pull the springs off the shocks and make sure those move freely also.

Or, wait until Friday until a pro can look at it

Yeah, that's a good point Eddy...One problem with the captured inner hingepings with nuts is that people tend to overtighten them, which results in serious binding... Make sure the arm inner hingpin nuts are not too tight....they should just kiss the plastic hingpin mount while not rotating when compressing the suspension.


Just bring it tonight and I'll take a look at it...racing the Corally again.

In off road the is not nearly the traction there is in on road so having a super fast steering servo is (IMO) over kill. A servo with .15 to .12 would suit most just fine. I am running a Airtronics 94358 for steering.

are you talking touring cars or off road here?


Why does someone need 200 oz/in to move a slide in a carb? When you have a 4 wheel drive vehicle, the front drive shafts like to keep the front wheels straight, hence the need for lots or torque to keep the wheels turned.

Yeah, you need torque for the brakes, but 100 oz/in enough for an 1/8 scale.
