Good luck!
I agree 100%

Ah yeah I saw this the other day, looks very similar to the R3 which isn't a bad thing. The R3 is awesome I really like the performance. Going to work on the Sweep body this year too.

12 kg equates to over 420 oz.......Thats more than enough. Please make sure to use hard steering savor spring or tighten the existing steering savor spring. Next, check for any bad bearings or anything that might restrict the steering or throttle movements on the car. Servos with more than 200 oz of torque should be enough. What brand of servos are you using?

Andy, check your calcs......420 sounded high so I looked at the Savox 1258 add on AMain. 12kg-cm. is advertised to be 166oz-in. I googled the conversion and got 166.6464863........etc.

I use the Savox 1258 and 1268 in steering for GT8 and they've worked fine (I do Not use a Spectrum brand radio......observe the disclaimer by Savox in this regard!)

You are right Jerry. Thank you for verifying and correct my error. If 166 oz is what you are using then it is little bit on the weak side. Tighten the steering servo saver spring or using harder spring will improve performance as well.
