Your supposed to use one in the servo arm, but that caused space problems. I have another on order with a saver

If i really want to race, ill just pull out the old RC10 GT. Besides, im not in it for anything but fun. Also, ive , in the process, designed a almost whole new car, which is pretty cool, considering im 14. . .
Thats okay if its all for the sake of fun. Different people, different forms of enjoyment per hobby. It does look shiny

I'm 14 too...Designed a few TC's in Autocad
