Anyone replace the stock ball joints form the servo horn to the servo saver with another brand? I just looked at mine and it's starting to form a split right on the molded line. I knew i should have rumn my 3mm tap before i attempted to screw in the screw. I was havin ghte same problem with the ball joints on the sway bar links too. I don't really feel like buying the entire set just to gets these since i don't plan on using the stock joints anymore.

I went with the Lunsford Titanium 1 3/4" (LNS1167) and fit perfectly with no issues. Check out Premiere Hobbies for some great deals or pm me if interested for great pricing on 4 pk., the 2 pks are currently out of stock.

Yes, using the shock rubber stoppers, there is some discussion a few pages back where we discussed. The rubber stoppers also keeps the shock pistion/screw from hitting the inner shock cap when shock is at full upstroke. Boots on the shocks, seem to work well, as in 8th scale and keeps the oil cleaner over longer periods of time.

Default Diffs

Fianlly going to the 10k/5k diff setup to try this week...I know, I know, what took so long, lol! I like to experiment to find something that may work better and still remain competitive, but way too many have used this setup with tremendous success. Looking forward to Wed racing action and hopefully decreasing lap times.

I've been running 18mm to 19mm ride hight evenly front & rear......Which do you prefer?

Default Steering Servo?

Does anyone have a recommendation on a servo that fits without any modification to get full throw to the left & right? I installed the Tresrey aluminum saver and have tried two different servos. First was a KO PDS2413 (servo ARM - hits the top of the case). Next was a Team Orion VDS1007 (servo saver - hits the upper right corner of the case)...

I have tried both the plastic & alum versions of the steering sets, hoping I could get clearance using one of them... I would prefer to stick with the aluminum steering set/plate so if anyone has a recommendation without the need of a dremel, I am open to suggestions?

And I have tried different arms of different height/length, etc....

Thanks in advance for any input!

Used to use a BLS352 that worked great and had no issues, but just switched to Savox. Please 'pm' either, Derek (Dlewis4) or I, for a great price on Savox if interested.
