Keep in mind that eliminating the servo saver will put a lot more strain on your servo any time you clip a pipe and a gear set for a good servo costs a lot more than plastic steering parts.
WOW a stoltz sighting!

I will second the servo glueing method. I couldn't believe the difference afterwards. I am on my second bellcrank arm, but I hit a lot of stuff as you might know. Anyone have a T4 chassis laying around that they want to get rid of? On a positive note, the bellcrank did not break.

I used thin CA glue. Pulled the whole thing off, separated the top and lower halves of the servo saver, cleaned it up, dropped on a couple drops of CA and put the halves back together making sure they were fully seated.

Cool double jumps

the double jump on the back straight away was a good idea you can get some nice air time off them

Default Oval cars

What are the main class/cars/size that people are running Sundays? I've been thinking of getting something to drive on the weekends as that's a better time there for me, and might look into oval. Always wanted a late model

Nonetheless, i checked the site for the classes run, but the list is a little Greek to me just familiar with SC/off-road. Any details on the classes (or resources i can refer to anywhere; I'll do my homework) and any car/class recommendations for a beginning oval racer? Is it strict oval cars or is more open? 1/10-1/12 oval scales, mini-sprints/lates, any pan cars, etc.?

Thanks.

Default Lipo Charger

Derek,
FYI - I will bring up the charger as soon as I can get there on a Sunday. I was there on Friday night but you were not. It will be a couple of weeks. Mark took a look at it on Friday and he saw that it doesn't work.
Thanks,
Gary

Thanks, I've been missing out then I run SC and have made a couple of weeknights, but the weekends would be nice. I saw Dan this past Sun actually and he asked me if I was racing but I said no - I thought oval was whole other ball of wax (car!). If I can run my truck then I'm there! If I run the same truck do most people tighten things up, limit the shocks, etc, or just keep it more run-whatcha-brung?

Honestly most guys just run a piece of tape to keep them from flipping over.

If you want to set the car up specifically for oval then yeah put limiters in the shocks to drop it some, use a little heavier oil, might want the right side stiffer than the left, but honestly it's a great group of guys out at the track on Sundays and they strap a piece of tape around and have a great time. As far as the other stuff the track races mini sprint cars mini late models. Some guys ome to run pan cars about once a month or so. 2wd truck is a big class. Bring what you have and have a good time.
