High guys,

I had a few racers ask for my set up from this past weekend at the Airtronic's Race. If you have any questions or if i missed anything, just ask here and I will do my best to help. I had a pretty good car with a little bit of a push going in. If you like that then this is a good set up. If you like more turn in, you can try a softer from diff oil.

Car looks really good. Can you run the throttle servo under the radio tray and flip the linkages to the top side of the servo arm? Would probably need some spacers to mount the servo so that the flange on the servo mounts clear the radio tray.

Thanks, Eventually I'm going to stop being lazy and drop the throttle servo down, only reason I haven't done it is, I made a small mod that's attached to the side of the steering servo mount to keep the wires neat, that mod is in the way of me mounting the throttle under the deck, The flange ill just trim off with a exacto!

Laydown servos have been tried by some manufacturers in the past, but the idea was always abandoned after a while. Dont know why since that's another way to lower CG, but perhaps more linkages = potential for more trouble.

Kindest regards,
Lars.
