They have a nice website. I was looking for pics of the track to see if was similar to MHOR.

How are you guys running the servo wire? Now that I have my electronics, I'm a lil frustrated with how tight everything is!

Sounds similar to ours but do not think the MHOR website is up to date! Do you guys have some videos on YouTube?

I've got mine routed around the back of the servo, I didn't feel comfortable with it so close to the servo saver nut.

+1 with routing back around. Fun isn't it? I told you this car is tough to wire. I stole ideas from Grapejuice and got a little creative on my own . . .

That's a pleasure mate.

I haven't had any real issues with the car myself, allot of the problems people seem to be having are because they haven't built it right the first time! For example - I am still using the standard original "thin" drive pin uni's!! (and I am a "team driver")...........I just built the using a grub screw on each side and thread-lock. I have only had one failure - and that is because I forgot to thread-lock. I did have an issue with the servo saver loosening off - however that was my own egghead fault - forgot to use the thread-lock again!

What issues are you having with the steering posts? Do you have the "R" or the "full house" version?

Give the car some more time, I went from the B44. While the B44 is VERY good - it is no where near as robust OR as easy to drive at 10/10 on the track for your average racer.

Cheers

I have used the swaybar only once on the rear - cause I just could not stop the traction rolling...........I try to use it as a very last resort. As others have suggested - soften up the rear (or increase the weight of the shock oil by 5) - makes a huge difference.

On our open, high bite tracks, I have been using 20k front and 10k rear in the differentials. This takes away some of the "twitchy" feeling in the front.

Cheers
