I think it has something to do with our track. So far never tried running GT in asphalt but basing it on my 1/10 EP touring, My setup for an asphalt track is totally different from my setup in this track. However JPN will be with me this afternoon and his Team C car is really glued.

DDG, if we run again tomorrow and your car doesn't work out well yet, lets try swapping out motors for one run...maybe mine does have much less torque thus is more planted on the exit even when heavy on the throttle.

Could that be a possibility MantisWorx?

Is there a stronger servo saver spring or is the stock one OK?

Having problem with 2 speed, shifting too early. When i tighten the adjustment screws it comes out the other end and binds. Do you have to use shorter screws?

Hmmmm Well i always grind the head down on a stainless 12mm screw so it doesn not make contact with the bell. but in order for it to go through the other side you would have to drill that hole through???? its is a blind hole so thats a little weird???


Over the next three days ai am doing a build and am going to post up information and tricks along the way starting in a few hours so i will address these things as i go!

Why do you remove the spider gear shims ..... mesh/ clearance?
