Thanks for the part number pops. And on the subject of the tobee craft drive shaft I've had one for about 3 months and have ran anywhere for 9x1 to stockers and mine is as good as the day I got it. just my 2 cents!

Are u supposted to line up the center link with center of the chassis?


Got everything installed looks good. But my servo makes a stretching sound when I link it to the steering rack? Please help???


But when it is not connected to the steering rack it is fine.....
You have to use lowprofile ballstuds or the center link will rub on the chassis. Even then you still might have to remove some material off of the chassis so it won't rub.

Ritchie: When I ran at Hobbytown even when I had the gearing right I was struggling to get the motor (a Fantom Monster) down to 200 degrees F! I'm not sure why the motor got so hot, maybe because the track is really long. The motor was FAST, though. The announcer said I would have qualified 3rd in mod (behind Peter and Andrew), but I was running a stock motor. Anyways, afterward I took the motor apart and the armature had gone from copper to red colored.

On motors, Chris tried running the Reedy MVP, which is going to be the Nat handout motor, but it seemed slow, even less power than the P2K. Supposedly Debbie or someone is going to make a Rain City setup for that motor, telling us what brush/spring combo works because no one runs it around here.

Aust: I bent the Tobee one also, but was able to bend it back into shape, and now it seems fine.

Matt,
So what I am hearing is the center link hitting the chassis?


I was thinking it was the servo over extending?


When I used the SSG servo horn everything was fine. But I couldn't get everything lined up correctly...

What is the part number for the lowprofile ball studs?

yodace: Know I'm not Matt, but I think he is talking about this: When you do the steering mod for adjustable ackerman you put a turnbuckle between the two steering rack swing arms instead of that little graphite piece. When you do this, the new turnbuckle will get caught and rub on the center spine of the chassis below the rack. You have to remove about 2 mm of the spine to keep it from rubbing (with a Dremel or something).

I haven't done that mod yet. Still waiting on placing an order after the holiday.
Wanted to try it with-out the mod done to the steering.

But something is making a stretching noise. Servo steering rack don't know....

I too have twisted 2 out of the 3 Yokomo graphite main shafts. The 3rd one is holding up quite fine for Stock. But I also run the Tobee one as well with great results. Maybe you should try the Bomber carbon center shaft. It's suppose to be pretty good and light. Especially for Mod.

The chassis is only 3 tenths of a oz lighter. It doesn't really give up any stiffness when all bolted together.

Would the stretching nosie be from the servo over-extending?

I had this sound before, dial out some steering on the EPA, the knuckles hit the hub carrier and then the servo horn bends, and thats the sound. I'm pritty sure.

Is the Bomber shaft made of woven graphite?
