Well,
there are two 5X8 bearings inside the cup with the oring and washer. One 5X8 is outside on the drive cup the other inside. The the 5x8 sits inside the 10x15 outdrive bearing. Its killer..

I will see you guys there! I am going to "undo" those sub-trim settings to see if I have any better luck with the servo saver. I know it does not make sense but was the only thing I changed when my ordeal started happening with the servo saver. Whadda pain but is still an awesome car . . .

Car is amazing ran 2 lipo's through it tonight at the LHS in the midst of finding a great setup... I have it pretty dialed now but is super aggressive steering wise, need to find a lil more rear traction... Was thinking of spacing the rear hubs forward? has anyone tried that and is the end result positive...

Here is my take on it . . . if you look at the car from a birdseye view you will notice something different about this car that I, personally, have not seen in any other design. The front wheels are wider than the rear. Usually they are even. This, in part, is what affords the steering advantage. Now, what many have done is weight the rear. Are you running any of the weights?

I ask because when something this disproportionate in a design like this, causes your buggy to have a strange mechanical advantage that tends to whip the rear around. Believe me, you want this and is why it is designed as such. To mitigate how fast it rotates is managed by weighting it--but maintaining a low center of gravity (CG) is crucial. Buy the weights.

I'm going to move my hubs forward, I believe Dlewis has this on his setup?

Either way I would think my moving the wheels forward you would get more weight bias on the rear tires giving you more traction?
