Thanks Tom! I really wanted to catch up to you two. The last two laps I started reeling you in. Felt good to lay down good times though. One bad lap really hurt me though. I think I spent 8 seconds on the pipe when you two passed and then got another bad break on the back right corner when I clipped the pipe and the corner marshal was busy. I didn't expect much going into the night, so it was great to be competitive. I hope to get back out next week.

Hey guys, got to race my 22 for the first time yesterday. Really really happy with the performance of the car. Now the car just needs a better driver!

Got a quick question for the experts out there...

I'm running rear motor on a high-bite indoor clay track (fairly open).Car has great turn in and great on power steering but I am noticing a bit of off power push. Any ideas as to what could be changed?

Basic Dustin Evans setup, except for using .75mm rear hexes. Running the long Thunder Power 2s pack as well, 13.5 motor.

Almost feels as if it is sensitive around center steering, mid steering does nothing, then once you get deep into the steering it picks back up but doesn't grab. Almost like an expo but in the middle range not either end. I tried negative expo, but was too sensitive around center for my likings. Any ideas?

Thanks!
Seth

I think you would want at least 120oz for off-road.

70 oz is more than enough for 1/10 buggy. The only time more torque is nice is for "walking" the front of the car off the boards.

I run a 140oz servo for steering in my 1/8 buggy. Almost 3x the vehicle weight and it works great.

Only 140oz? I think the one in my RC8B is like 333oz, with like a .11 or .12 transit time

Back when the first 1/8th scales where around thats all there was and in reality everyone is being mislead to believe they must purchase the 140 dollar servos with 400oz of torque...Although more torque is better in 1/8 just for the option of putting a taller servo arm to achieve a much faster speed that is jst simply not an option in the 22 so that has led me to looking for the fastest alternative and has led me to the savox sc-1290mg

I would never pay that kind of money for a servo. I picked up my Hitec 5955TG a few years ago for like $70 new on here. Been an awesome servo. On another note, I too have been looking at the Savox 1290 servo for the 22 when I get it in another week or two as well. Wish I could find another Hitec 5996TG, that's what I had in my B4.1 when it got stolen. That servo was fricken awesome and I only paid like $40 for it used.

I've been running the JR 9100S in my 22. Works extremely well, super fast and plenty of torque.
