I think you're gonna be waiting a while. I tossed my stock car around the last couple of weekends without any issues at all.

so far-- very good. i've 'ripped' the carbon arm piece out of the black alloy piece below in a massive mod accident at USIC. a longer screw fixed my 'issue' w/ the lower arm mount. the carbon arm and plastic lower arm ball holder all looked straight / yielded proper ride height.

My first build with this brand. Got problem when installing the servo. Couldn't get the servo mount aligned right with the shock mount brace. Would you have some advice on this? Much thanks!

With the mount rotated 180, however, the bellcrank gets caught and can't be even back to its original position. May I ask what dimensions of your servos using in this pan car? It says in the manual that servo of 28 - 33mm length can be used. Mine is 35
mm. May be it's the issue.

Is there not a corresponding offset on the bellcrank mount post? Turn it around as well.

How wide is the servo? please measure w/ a caliper.

He would need to use the Servo mounts from the P12 2017 and it fits perfectly and also add a stand-off for the shock from the P12 2017 just will eliminate the evo Servo mount and shock mount

100% amazed by the quality, fit and finish of this kit. I used a xpert mm3302 had to widen the mounting holes on the servo then cut off the front servo ear flush with the mount.

Finally got to run my EVO at TQ in Chino, CA last night. With the same setup as the 2017 P12 (with graphite chassis, same tires, same motor, same batteries) it ran identical lap times. With the aluminum chassis, the car
was more settled than the 2017 (graphite chassis). We'll see with a little setup adjustments if I can make it better. I run the short wheelbase in front and long in back. Care must be taken on setup to set the servo throw end points
so that the steering arms do not hit the suspension bulkheads (that was not an issue on the previous cars). Still more than enough steering available. I was concerned about the weight, but ready to run is was slightly under
weight. So far so good.
