I have noticed that Ty uses 3.5 degrees rear toe in on all his set ups. The majority of cars use a standard 3 degrees rear toe. Would this be due to the lighter overall car weight due to the shorty lipo battery compared to the heavier saddle pack.

Thoughts?

I run a 4500 with no problem running over 15 min. Might be able to do 20.

Well i put in an order earlier with absolute for the buggy. Then checked back few minutes ago and they are out of the stock. I was charged so i guess i will tomorrow if i actually got it. I guess i may cancel my preorder with tower tomorrow if the order with absolute goes through and they ship the buggy.

is it really that hard? when it was posted here that absolute had the buggy, i put it in my cart and then called absolute (this was about 45 minutes before the phone number said they were closed). i wanted to know if they really had it or if it was a pre-order kind of thing. so i left a message and sent an email to them. i see that they got back to my email and they said they do have them ready to ship. so i go back to their website and it won't let me log in and of course they no longer have any more.

gotta love awesome customer service and great web interface. at least i'm glad i found out before they got any of my money...

the waiting continues...

Is it that hard for a company to:

-answer the phone and questions up to the time you advertise that you close
-have competent website software that will allow customers to log on

I understand what you are saying. I have trouble with one of my computers but what's weird is they are both macs.

At home today with the kids... while the baby is sleeping, we are building. (On to the rear tower and shocks now.)

How tight are you guys setting your servo savers? What is the general rule to make it tighter or not? lets see some paint pics. Need some ideas!!!

Most people are not going to run servo savers. If you don't have an aluminum horn, I would glue the saver and make it as tight as I could.

If you nervous about your servo, I would make it tight enough where I couldn't move it by hand, and set it tighter or looser depending upon how it effected handling when I got to the track.
