Haha, it's fine. I see no problem with it.

Ran my AD2 and 8IGHT at ARC a bunch today...man, both of those cars are so much fun to drive.

I am picking up my xxxcr this weekend. Im going to be running on an indoor track. Tires of choice are usually pink tapers and prescrub fronts. What setup would yall recommend as a starting point. I would need a good balance of high and low speed steering. I will be running mod with this. Any information would be greatly appreciated.

Jack Smash - Man, I have no idea. I know a lot of resources had been dedicated to the 8IGHT and now they're pushing to get the 8-T done. I haven't heard anything about tires and stuff like that but I'm assuming they're doing the best with the man-power they've got.

lawtonlosi - If Jesse Robbers reads this, I'm sure he can point you to a good setup for an indoor track. If not, you may want to head over to losibk2.com and ask him what he recommends, he's good with that kind of thing.

Aaron, or anyone... I just picked up the Brushless XXXT RTR. Im going to run an Ace DS1313 servo. Alignment for the servo mounts is not covered in the manual and I'd like to know if you would know how I should mount them. Thx

Oh man! I don't have any experience with those servos, nor do I know anyone who has, so I really have no idea.

Hopefully someone else out there will know?

Default I need help with balance.

Front to back, Side to side.
Front to back seems to come easily. Adjust for traction.

Sunday at the track my MF2 felt pretty good with one exception. When landing the doubles it wanted to go left. Really LEFT. I looked for differences from side to side and could not find anything visible. Are there any areas to check that I may have missed. Is it an assembly issue? I tried pretty hard to see that things are aligned and even. Links, toe, camber, rebuilt shocks, and so on.

How about pre-load from side to side? What's a good way to check that out?

Damn that's alot of questions.
Thanks in advance

Try looking for a bent shock shaft? Take your vehicle apart and re-inspect everything, including your chassis for cracks....
