Is it commen to have issues getting parts for the car? No one here in Dallas stocks them and they don't seem to be readily available. thinking of getting rid of the xray and wondering if parts are going to be an issue.

thanks

you need to rotate the servo by 90 deg

you can either drill holes on the chassis to mount the servo or use servo tape/shoe goo to stick the servo onto the chassis

all the parts you need are already in the kit

this mod is rather easy to do with minimum effort, and it does provide more space for mounting electronics on the chassis

parts are available, the hobby shops just have to order them. If they don't want to stock them then there's all kinds of online shops that carry the yokomo stuff

Some say it's aimed towards sport, others say performance... we'll know in less than a month I'd think.

quick question? Does anyone out there make a steel or aluminum spool for the sd. I have tried putting the sandpaper in the diffs. but it doesn't work that well they either slip or the bolt breaks or backs off.

I know when the Mr4tc hit the shelves at like $135.00 everyone thought it was going to be a sport car- It was a rocket for its time. Barry was the man with that car! So I hope the Tub is along those lines! I love my SSG and my just get a carpet Yok and run one outside and one carpet...sounds like fun...hehe

Speaking of tub chassis... has anyone ever made a tub/composite 1/12th pan car? I wonder how it would be? Hmmmmmm Someone talk Yokomo into making one....
Thanks Kilruf... I havent seen the trailing blocks, so didn't really know what they were all about. What is the difference performance-wise by running them.

Speedtech is working on a spool right now, they'll have one in around a month.

I had my first night out with my SD last night, and I gotta say it was a very good experience. I used the base RS setup, but found the rear end was much too loose, so I brought the rear arms forward to get a little weight over them, and it helped a ton. Unfortunately we had an unusually tight track last night, and it was a little hard to get the new car to work good on it. I tried to shorten the camber links to get a little more roll in the car, but when I went to do that, the turnbuckles were too long so I wasn't able to test with that, but I did buy 4 shorter turnbuckles so that I can switch out in the future.

I tried to get the car as aggressive as I could, but I just dont feel like it was aggressive enough, does anyone have some tips on how I can get some more steering out of it?
