I got a chance to run the slapmaster bearing today. The diff felt a bit tighter than normal but the car was a dream to drive. Very smooth. I think I'll keep it on there for a little while longer.

I have been running the Slapmaster thrust kit in my X and it keeps the outside bearing good a lot longer. It seems to be real picky on it's adjustment though. I let my a hair loose for the 1st run as it got tighter once I ran a pack through it.

I received my SlapMaster last week. I will post my thoughts as soon as I test it.

Here's one I did, maybe it will give you some ideas on the wiring. Make note that you can plug your PT into the fan outlet on the esc

nice but the graphite piece on the servo saver gos on the back and the shock is upside down,
i know now how to wire the brushless, so many damm wires.
oh and the alm saddles in the front , get reed of them and get the graphite ones.

Thanks Wally but most people run their shock that way. You can place the graphite servo saver brace on either side, on the back does not alter the steering geometry if you place one on an existing installation. I'm not sure what alm saddles are but the front end on this car was as the customer delivered it and was before CRC decided to change the design.
One thing for sure, there's a lot of wires to deal with!

Odpurple is right. There is no right way for the servo brace or for the shock.

The aluminum saddles are the spacers under the arms (red alum thingys).

I dont even use the graphite brace for the servo saver. Never did on any 12th scale I've owned. The car i got from a fast guy had his shock on the opposite way too (opposite the instructions).

Clean wiring od.

The thought behind placing the shock the opposite as shown is that the piston will not sit the air space at the top of the shock. But it shouldn't matter which direction the shock is since the way it builds there shouldn't be any air in there.

graphite piece on the servo saver dose change the ak in the steering
shock the other way for air bubblys in the shock
graphite spacers under the arms so the arms dont break
and counter sink the arm for the 2 screws for the upper block so they sit flat on the spacers.
