Default Servo Saver Adjustment

I was wondering how tight all the Jammin Guru's on here are running their servo saver on the buggy?When I had my CRT I think it was like 8-10 millimeters from chassis to the top of the adjuster nut.I just bent my first acorman arm(stock arm) and was wondering if I had something to tight or not.I upgraded to the CnC arm and want the tention to be right.Thanks

Its turned out my track was closed, so I went to some vacant lots behind my house. My airfilter popped off and the motor sucked down some sand and killed my turbo plug, But i believe the motor is fine.

Ouch, did you take it apart and look inside it?

If you don't inspect inside it some more and clean it you can do more harm to the engine.

sorry for the uber late response..but my tank fit just fine...but at the same time i am not 100% sure what your question entails!

I dont know if any of you guys have fitted the new crosscut diff gears. I have them in my FTE and it definitely is smoother drivetrain. I also notice very good accelleration. Not that is wasnot before. I am racing this weekend so will you know if I noticed a major difference.

Could have bought an X-Ray XB8TQ with about $700 worth of spares for $500 but passed it up.
I didn't want to get tempted into driving it.
Love my Hong Nor X1-CR FTE too much!
The only thing I liked about Losi was the 16mm shock pistons.
I have it first hand from HN that the factory is testing new BB 16mm shocks for the Jammin. Its in the testing phase atthe moment. So yes the only advantage really the Losi had was the shocks. Now that thats history Losi will be less of the town talk.
The thing I like about my X1 is that its easy to set up and your setup works for 90% of tracks and you can adapt your driving on the other 10% of tracks.
Not much talk about the X1 as there is nothing to talk about.
Just go and Race. And WIN!

Tabushi, I just picked up a gallon of Maxy's fuel from a fellow racer. I'll be trying it out as soon as my current fuel runs out. Do you happen to know what the oil content is?


P.S.
This is kind of off topic, but what do you do for work? I see you travel a lot.

SKOT,

If you picked up a MONSTER FUEL, its 12% oil content. On the other hand, if you picked up TEAM EDITION FUEL, its 10% oil content.

Great to know you are giving Maxy's Fuel a try, you will find that its an excellent fuel (for me, simply the best) ... try to post your impressions here ...

About your "offtopic" question, i work for a Bussiness Consulting firm, and im a Senior Project Manager (usualy work on banking projects).

cya !!
