Thumbs up servo mount modification

I have finished following the tips in this forum about the mods for mounting the servo. I have attached a pic as well. Well worth the fuss. Thanks to everyone.

G. wait for tossolini's version.

or

E.

ran the rayspeed last weekend, and i couldn't get it to work. it tweaked way too easily, and yes, the chassis flexes more than stock. i went back to the stock chassis and it was hooked after the 1st run.

now i'm not gonna start a flamin' war and say the rayspeed sucks. however, it does suck for me.

I think the rayspeed chassis is designed for asphalt or low grip surface, it may not work for carpet.

Mo has been running his RS SD on carpet with foams and has been just as fast as anyone else. The car generates a ton of traction so getting rid of that traction is the key to being fast on carpet. Maybe we can get Mo to share his foam carpet setup with us?

On the topic of the holes in the back of the RS chassis, I was guessing it's used to put the front castor blocks and steering blocks in the rear for completely adjustable toe-in. Instead of the steering turnbuckles going to the bell cranks they would go to some kind of mount on those extra holes. Sound good or am I crazy

Chris T has told me to just run the standard kit setup for SoCal, he was running green in front, and pink in rear for springs, that's modified though.

Speaking of Kit setups and what not...

When I put up my SD for the offroad season. I seemed to have misplaced all the setups that Billy sent with my kit. Does anyone have those on their pc? I have downloaded all of MO's setups....

Thanks
