Yeah, both me and my friend ran the lite kit on a 8th scale/10th scale track in mod. I would say the track was a bit on the low side in the morning and slowly grooved up during the day to med bite.

I don't have a video of the 2wd mains. But you can get a sense of the track and conditions with the 4WD video.

Loved it. I was sailing over other B5M kits (non-lites) over the doubles cause it's lighter and flies higher and farther. Running a shorty pack, with only the brass (C) mount. Also, being lighter we can clear triples that almost all the other cars have issues with.

I hate when My servos move during a run and change trim.

Any minus to running it?

Your servo is moving during the course of a run? I've never heard of anyone's servo coming loose that wasn't properly and securely tightened to the chassis. Are you sure you don't have a stripped servo horn? I only run with aluminum servo horns.

it's tight

the holes on the servo, most any servo, are biggerin diameter than the 3mm screw that goes in to mount it, thus is moves sometimes with a hit on a pipe or another car

square, ride and KO make an insert that helps take up the space, just wondered about the jconcepts part

jconcepts use a grub screw on each side to press against the servo to minimize shifting

Track layout looks fun as hell.

Rc Shox have had G 10 Garodisks available for slippers for a few years. Virtually the same thing.

I'm running it. It's a great aesthetic piece.

My ball cups are starting to look like they were installed by a grizzly bear. Its time to replace them. I can't remember if AE released new ballcups or they just had a running improvement. I'm not able to locate any new part number. Should I just order the stock cup number?
