That you for knocking some sense into me. Always best to start off with kit, and tweak as needed.

Buy exotek aluminium cva collars. Run 40 wt front 27.5 rear. Build the with the clay kit setup and no limiters in the shocks. This car is super good out the box. I haven't broke anything at all.

That I can do. Done. Now just need paint, 40 weight oil, and for it to be Monday.... That is if whom I bought it from (wont mention names, but I loathe them) ships it on time.

Are there any other options for servo horns? The stock parts are back ordered everywhere I look.

Shouldn't be too hard to find one it looks fairly standard. Just have to measure it. If the ballstud is too high you'll start to hit the top deck.

Pretty much everything I wanted to order as far as spares go is backordered. Will just have to drive better and not crash... lol

I am using a regualr old aluminum horn that came with a Hitec servo. NO clearence issues at all. I would imagine any standard length horn would work

That's because you're a great driver Kellen. Is that set up for LRH, OCRC or both? Are you running kit springs or something different?

My son ran it again last night. All I can say is that this thing is a tank. The amount of tumbles, lawn darts and landing upside down he did. The only thing he broke was the eccentric bushing when he ran right in to the post. Awesome car!

That's awesome lol. I'm just running kit setup with 40 wt front 27.5 wt rear with no limiters and 20mm ride height. It's really good at lrh. At ocrc I might move the hubs forward for some more rear grip.

Wouldnt the servo tie rod be better if it was parallel to the others all at 90's? I shimmed mine back more thinking it would be better.
Any comments on the method to my madness?

It really has no effect. The only thing that matters is the turnbuckles going from the bellcracks to the steering hubs. It contronls ackerman. The one to the servo could be anywhere. If its too drastic of an angle it could bind a little but outside of that, it has zero effect on steering geometry.
