i use the futaba s9551 low profile servo in my avid and to get to the 2 inner screws you have to take the servo out of the car or use a ball driver.

Jeff thanks, Do you have to run a low profile servo or is that just your preference?

you can run any servo you like this is just what i had and what i prefer as it gives more space for the other electronics on the car.

Hi,
As for ballstuds and ballcups, I am using yokomo ones because I was owning a BD5 before so I was having them
For the ballstuds I uses for the kingpins on C-hubs, it is a yokomo also, the same as the BD5. I just had to reduce the size of the shim to use it on the Avid 2.
The turnbuckles I use are some old aluminium tamiya ones that a friends was having and give to me.
I think the TOP Photon's one should fit as well.
Now I am working to find a gear diff I can fit in the car, because in mod it is really helpfull, maybe the TOP Photon gear diff can fit, I have to check for it

I will post my setup as soon as I can, I am not at home right now

the ball cups were probably just his own preferance and the grinding is for clearance i am assuming to get full throw. and theshocks are tamiyas.

Yes as Jeff said, ballcups are there by preference. At the beginning I put them on the car for better looking and less slop. But I was a little worried about changing a bit the rollcenters of the car and having some troubles with the handling. But surprisingly, the car was just much better this way.
As for the steering, I made this modification to have more lock. Normally, with the ackerman in position 5 the most angled wheel i could have was 20 degrees (inside wheel), now i can have like 24 degrees as in most of the cars. It is not usefull on all track, but if grip is very high you will have better steering.
As for the shocks, they are tamiya yes. The original shocks are not bad if you correct somme issue like the bladder or the o-ring, but the biggest trouble i had with them was the collar that didn't fit the shock bodies and my ride height was always changing during each run. I tried with another set of collar and bodies and problem was still the same, so i decided to switch to tamiya to be sure my shocks are not an issue anymore
