I did, checked to see if it was hitting anything. Only thing that comes really close is the bump where the right upside down ball stud on the rack is. But even then it appears to not touch.

Maybe you over tightned you spindles to the caster block.

depending where you run your truck at, you could have some grit or debris between the slide arm and the rack mount. I had this happen on the 22 buggy i had. I used a little bit of white lithium grease on it and never happened again.

+1 on 0 shims with a savox servo. I run a Savox 1258tg (similar to the S6040) with the aluminum servo horn from TLR, and I ended with no shims at all to make the rack clear the horn.

I try to not run black or lithium grease because the dirt sticks to it easily.
I use silicon spray from pep boys, no issues. I may try the aluminum rack sometime to see how it does.

Casper, Ryan, Frank
In your guys opinion and experience, is it better to use a heavier battery 300g+ or lighter battery -300g. I'm talking of course about balance. Thanks, info much appreciated!

I assume you're referring to a SHORTY LiPo pack?

Specify next time, please

good point, I'll check that tonight. been focusing on the steering rack but could very well be down stream.

Anyone have any experience with the aluminum steering rack? I've heard mixed things, seems to my like it would be more prone to binding..

I gave weight, how much more specific can I be. There are stick packs less than 300g and their are larger mah batteries that weigh over 300g.

I gave it a shot and it would bind on me at random times so I went back to plastic.In my opinion the rack should be changed every three months depending on how much you race.Its Definately not the best steering rack I've seen

I run the Orion Carbon Pro 90C 5000mAh pack, which weighs about 275g. In the 22SCT, people have been adding even more weight (I don't) so a 300g+ pack may not be too bad. One this to keep in mind though, you can always add weight to the your car with lead or steel, but it you won't be able to take weight out if you get a heavier battery.

Frank or Casper, What gearing would you use for a 13.5 blinky?

Ryan and I have been running Venom 5000 60C which are about 294g. For stock I would get a light pack (short to really save some weight) but mod I would not be too worried about battery weight personally. 10-15g on totally battery is not going to have a huge effect in for as large as the battery is. (basically not a concentrated wieght over an axle.

Good to know what kind of mileage to expect. it's only got about 3 race nights on it, but that's about 20 heats. Plus some practice hours. Seems soon, but could be cooked I guess.

Well I'm going to be running a 8.5t, and my SMC's are about 299g, so I should be good. Also I know this has probably already been discussed, but what are the TLR tranny weights you and Ryan are talking about on your collaborative set-up?
