The room is easy if you use a shorty servi. My sensor wire is 175mm

Did you cut a hole in the waterfall for looks or performance?

It created flex and I was able to run the wires a cleaner way. So it was a win both ways

I'm running a spektrum dx3c with a expert servo and a trakpower esc and a regular spektrum receiver won't fit unless you mount it on the servo. I ordered some Orange RX receivers. Since they are micro they fit down behind the servo now.

Seems to love a stiffer setting too, i ran 45wt front Black Yatabe, 40wt rear Purple Yatabe, 4mm spacers on the ackerman plate, rest of the set up, kit, car had tons of grip, im running the Bmax4 rear arms too and brass rear pivot blocks, was good enough for an A final quali and a 2nd place finish, my best yet, and im not too good in finals lol.

I am going to use that oil/spring combo this weekend. My track has wood jumps with very steep angles that seem to instantly load the suspension. Would adding droop help with these type of jumps?

If you are using a shorty pack? Try moving it forward or back or middle of the car!
