Default steering arm

hey Aaron its Jake from AZ Alberts friend. I have a JR 4800T doing my steering on my 8T and everybody sez toss the stock steering crank and get a aluminum one so I bought a Dynamite steering crank arm. I put the ball on the furthest hole out on the arm but the problem is is that it hits the fuel tank slightly when it goes through its arc. Can i move the ball to the next hole in and grind the arm down without changing the steering dynamics? I figured there is a reason they designed the steering arm to be that length and dont want to go and do something that will make the steering react different than it is supposed to.
If anybody else has encountered this problem please let me know how it was solved.

I had the same issue. I ran it in one hole, but didn't think I liked it. I just put the new Losi aluminum arm on the car. It has the original dimensions, so I am looking forward to it this weekend.

Trixter - I think SH makes those engines. They're sold as Dynamite, Sportwerks, and Losi. I used to run them as practice engines for 1/8th scale and there are quite a few people around here who race with them in the truggy class.

Any engine that can get an LST moving that fast, is putting down the power! Haha. They tune well and hold up excellently for a sport motor. I think it'll be a great fit for the 8T and RTR.

Jake - It's important that the servo horn is the same length as the bellcrank it hooks up to. Otherwise, you'll have mechanical exponential. As long as you can maintain that geometry, trimming it should be fine. Otherwise, like "cornerspeed" said, Losi makes an aluminum servo arm that will work perfectly.

And for what it's worth, I've been using the stock plastic one.

icemandolmite - I've been running the truck as it comes out of the box. The stock setup works good! Haha. I don't think any of the team guys have strayed too far from it, either. If you want to try something a little different, try Truhe's setup from the Losi website.

trixter - The 8T RTR is listed as backorder on Horizon's website still, so it's not being sold yet.

Haha, I'd be honored if that was my calling in the R/C world. To remind people that they're just toys
