Savox 1268 for steering and 0252 for throttle. Plenty of torque and speed to please any racer.

Yes, I have been in the presence of Paolo at Timezone and probably shouldn't need to ask after that kind of performance but I can't get the info from Kyosho on what the effective caster angle is. The Cobra GT is an amazing machine and most likely my next car since it is a 'high level competition' race car.

The 'preliminary' GT rules for ROAR still choke on the 'kickup' I'll probably avoid the TeamC/OFNA even though the OFNA had been 'grandfathered in' at a race and the TeamC not allowed. That's too confusing.
Kyosho caster is 17 deg. More than you would like I guess.

Thanks Mika, that much caster is killing any chance for Kyosho to do battle with the Serpent GT and the TeamC. The responses out of the Homestead GT race make it sound like the Serpent drivers have a little more 'push' than desired and the TeamC has the ability to get in 'under' them.

Desoto Racing commented on being able to back-down the caster angle to incredible numbers. I just don't know where most of them run on their setups. It's just quite disheartening to have both the Serpent and TeamC/OFNA dive under you with the 'ease' they do.

Mika, check PM.

As most of the front suspensions are of c-hub style the part to change the caster is use a different front hub carrier.

Team C does offer 12 (kit) and 14 in plastic, and there is also a 10 aluminum part available.

This one would be my choice.

While snowed in, may have to go to my 'Team Mongoose' cave and get out the dremmmmmmmelizer.

Thanks
