Would the turnbuckle then go over the drive shaft?
you can check out the album on yokomo usa's web site
they have pics of masami's car there and they shows how the servo rotation is done

is there any nice permanent tracks in alberta??

your servo will vary in position due to its size. My futaba 9402 was butted right against the center brace, and had to cut the backbone approxiametly 1/4" where the servo ears lined up, or else the other side of the servo would have hung over the edge of the chassis.
The servo saver/ steering assembly has to be flipped over and the turnbuckle was approx, 40mm. Your kit has the other part to mount the ballcup to from the servo.
The alloy servo mounts are made by Yokomo, but I have seen others use the associated one too.
I also heard that you are local to the Tri state area, I race at Southshorehobby.com. Maybe I will see ya there.
Any chance of you sending me pic of this servo conversion. Please send me a PM if possible

Ooooh ok. Actually I'm using the Tobee lightweight one and it handles my 12T motors quite well, and the difference in polar moment of inertia must not be that noticeable.

I'm really curious about the Tobee shaft, my track is strictly stock and lowering the rotating mass would be a plus. How is the weight difference?

Any idea when the Carbon composite parts are going to be available in the US?

To make things easy, the set with front and rear aluminium shafts and center shaft weights the same as the stock center shaft.

Default Tobee SHaft

I use the tobee shaft, and it is a great weight difference. You can see the specs from Speedtechrc.com or Tobee direct versus the Yok shaft. Plus it looks really COOL.

Thats how I remember it as well, I'd just like to know how he removed the end piece.

The new steering on it is awesome, though the chassis is a little too flexible for the carpet I run on. I've messed around with battery/wheel base adjustments, before I had the RS, and the battery forward idea really helped (with rubber tires and a one-way) Even a 1mm change in battery placement (using the wheel base) is noticable.
Well I'm glad that I seem to have picked the right chassis. I thought the main chassis was 3mm, am I wrong?

Any idea how the Suzuki drive cups affect it? I picked up a pair of those as well, I heard it was a good idea for mod.

Don't know, but to me the plastic ones works great. And if I have any problem with them, I have some in spares and they're cheap.

get the aluminum ones if your going to run mod, I only put the aluminum one in the rear since that was the only one I ever broke.

About the Tobee stuff: Tobee Craft claims that with their centershaft and both aluminum input shafts, that part of the drive train is half the weight (I think ). I'm not sure about the centershaft on its own, but I use it, and it is much lighter. Be careful with the aluminum input shafts though, if you get them. I think I tweaked one, so I'm switching to the Square Ti rear input shaft when it gets here.

As to the Carbon stuff: Rainbow Ten has some of it: I ordered the arms and transmission cases (For less flex). Steve (from SpeedTech) said he'd have the carbon parts soon, but I don't know when. On the "What's new at SpeedTech" thread I believe he said he was working on the spools as well .
Later in November, more carbon stuff is coming, like the battery strap, 4 degree hub carrier etc etc....

Yeah, I've bended (not tweaked) my rear one also, so as I'm out of money, I kept the stock one.

Anyway, the shafts should be about 1/3 of the steel ones (according to volumetric mass) and the central one about 2/3 (according to its volume). I'm too lazy to check all their weight, sorry...

I'm already using the Aquare titanium input shafts and axels... I clipped a board and broke a c-hub yesterday, only have 1 spare and since no one around here carries Yok parts I need to order more. I was hoping to be able to get the carbon ones from the states and not have to go look in rainbow ten, their site is a pain in the butt...
