Well I'm just a Joe Average driver. I could only wish I was right off the local fast guy Mike D.! If he ran 19T class 21 laps would probably be TQ.

For what servo? I run KO servos and use KO's own horn, much stiffer and snugger fitting than the Yokomo part.

Not a brand I've ever bought parts for, but I see GS (or was it OFNA?) do some servo horns that look very substantial and similar in design to the KO items I use - no first hand experience though.

First I set the droop with th shocks OFF, then I put them and check if I need to change their lenght (if the droop changed when I put them on).

With the shocks on, if you checked the droop with them off, and the shocks were too short it would change your droop.

Never had a problem with the Yokomo servo arms for KO or Airtronics. They should be the same size.

I've found that, when the car is louder than normal, it usually means there is some binding in the drivetrain. You may want to take the motor out of gear and rotate the drivetrain very slowly by hand, feeling for any sticky spots. If you find one, take the center shaft out so you can tell whether the problem is in the front or rear diff case. Once you know, redo the shimming until the problem is fixed. Also, if you do not find a sticky spot, twist the diffs and try again. The diffs are not perfectly round, and so, in a certain position they may bind more than normal. This happened on my car, and I had to simply loosen the shimming.

I bought the springs for the GT4 as well, the orange overlap with a rate for the gas car, so I really dont think they are necissary...

Well I live in MD and race at the following places.

http://www.dougshobby.com
Doug's Hobby Shop outdoor gas and electric.

http://www.rctrack.com/images/facility/track1.jpg
http://www.rctrack.com/images/facility/track2.jpg
http://www.rctrack.com/images/facility/track3.jpg
http://www.rctrack.com/Galleries/galleries.htm
This is the carpet track that I raced yesterday. Different layout though.

http://www.fastlanerc.com - all gas mostly 1/8 scale

http://www.sandjhobbies.com - fifth scale, gas touring, 1/8 scale

http://www.hobbyworks.com - electric touring and TCS racing
outdoors

and where WYD races http://www.rcohobbies.com/ - kind of far but plan on being there soon.

Where we talk trash - http://www.rctech.net/forum/showthre...s=&threadid=66

Local fast guys: Mike Dunnigan (SMC, Jaco), Craig Xavier (Trinity, Losi), Andrew Gray (Losi, Team Orion), Todd Lewis (Fantom, Losi, SMC I think), Bob VanWagner (Team CRC) and I have to mention my friend who loaned me the 1.18 3300's Mark Unrath (SMC). These guys mostly run only at The Track on the rug again where I was yesterday. That's it Randman and probably enough.

What are good parts to keep in hand for spare? Most commonly worn or broke parts for SD?
