Default The Novice is back

I purchased the Kyosho STS Truggy for my son and its running great. The only thing is that it's not cornering very well. This could be because I am not use to the power and the track is tight, all 180 degrees truns.

My questions is that I have a 100.00 dollars credit at he local hobby shop, what should be the first thing I should start modifying.

servo plastic parts, better tires, as always any advice is appreciated. Thanks guys.

Starting a new thread is not the best way to get help. If you post this in one of the Kyosho threads you will get a bunch more help.

If it won't turn enough, it could be your end points. Just make sure the wheels are turning all the way. Also, more toe out will help.

Bhard - Like Jason and Dave said, servos (and often, all the radio equipment) are usually the first things to replace in any nitro RTR. Your truck has big, heavy front tires that require a little bit of muscle to turn back and forth, so you'll definitely want a better servo.

Try to get something in the ballpark of 180-200 oz.-in. of torque (rated at 6v). The Airtronics 358-359, Hitec 59-- series, JR 9000T, and others will work great.

With that said, there are a lot of very knowledgeable people who post on RCTech. Plenty of experienced hobbyists, company representatives, and factory drivers. There's so much information already in this forum that pretty much any question you could ever ask is probably already here, waiting to be searched for (but I understand that searching for info is a pain in the butt, haha).

What I would ask, is that if you do post a new thread, try to title it with something relevant to the topic of the discussion. I'm sure I speak for a lot of readers here when I say that I usually skip over threads that are titled "newbie question" or "I don't know what to buy" or anything like that, and I probably wouldn't have clicked on this one if I hadn't recognized your name.

Good luck, and have fun. Oh, and if you have any other questions that might not fit into other threads, you can always ask me.

All kidding aside, the thread titled, " KYOSHO STR/TIPS/PICS/VIDEO'S/TOPICS/EXC.." is a very useful resource. There are several factory guys who look at the thread on a regular basis, and you are bound to get any question answered. Just trying to help.
