Yes, I've ran into the same problem. Really strange as I thought it's going to be a direct bolt on conversion. Is there a need to change to a longer drive cups or anything like that? How different is this conversion from the model that comes as electric out of the box??

Default SERVOS

What´s the ideal Torque/speed for steering and acc/brk servos for these cars, considering their weight.

You really need to have over 300 oz and less then 0.1S for speed on your steering for these babes.
Throttle/ Brake I tend to use the same but I would say you can get by easily on a servo with 200 oz or so.
I think throttle speed and torque is a more personal taste ..... but thats me.

And to set the record straight, I had to do a McGyver fix for your brand new Serpent the morning of your first outing with that car at IRCR.

I never made the harmful statements you claim I did about Kyosho, TeamC or Paolo. Marcus pushed you to misinterpret my message and sent you the PM that you admit to and witnesses have verified.

I'm amazed that someone thinks you are 'Tech-Elite'........you were going to 'pack-it-up' and go home that day until I volunteered to fix your car.

I've made no 'bold statements'..........concerning the TeamC issue, I was mirroring comments made by TeamC users that were not happy with the 'failure rate' you acknowledge. I'm not the one that 'stepped in it' here by stating the Kyosho has 'poor racability'................ A 'bold' and 'stupid' statement is is like your claim 'Paolo can spank us on 3 wheels'..........really !!

Is it still true that you have not yet been on 'the podium' at a major event. I think it will remain so because there are too many 'factory drivers' including the one that can 'spank you on 3 wheels'.

Sounds like someone needs to adjust their meds again

Move on man, its not that serious

Just for kicks lets get your explanation on what roll center does, I am sure the audience could use a refresher from a pro like you

I have some new & used Alpha tires if anyone is looking. I no longer have a GT to run.

On a Kyosho Inferno GT2... What would be a good combination for spur / pinion for great acceleration? Very high speed isn't that important. 43/46 spur and 16/19 pinion?

It depends on the engine that you are using. The spur/pinion combos you lists are great if you are using a low to mid-range grunt engine. If you are using an engine with high-end legs (an onroad .21), you might want to go to a 15/19, 15/18, or 14/18 on your clutchbell pinions. The clutch bell pinions also depend on a technical track versus speed track and small to large as far as size. Monitor your engine temps and experiment with the different combos until you find what works at the track that you are running.

Guys help me out a little bit, I've got some slack going on in my inferno's servo saver. Is there a upgrade servo saver that uses ball bearings and not just metal to metal?

Hi!

Yea GTs develop a lot of slop. Something that always helps is to have a close look at where the slop is and add shims here and there. But also the ball cups and ball ends on the camber and steering links wear so it's a good thing to change them. There also can be some play in the lower arms. Basically anything that moves or rotates will develop some play at some point.

Hope this helps.

Yea there is no slop in those places, my slop is the on servo saver and the shaft it rides on. Since its metal to metal over time it's worn out. Id like to upgrade it to a 4 bearing design like pretty much every other rc car on the market but I'm not sure if the mp777 servo save will fit.

I don't know much about the inferno but my bet is that it would fit. A lot of parts are the same from the 777 to the GT2...

Yes, the MP777 servo saver should fit fine. The GT1 and GT2 are basically the original MP 7.5 chassis which many of the triple 7 parts should fit/work.
