Hi,
I need help or advice guys. I am running M04L, extremely lowered for better handling. Hence car is much more stable now with ezrun 13T and very fast on straights, servo needs constant re-trimming left or right after any (even small) hits.
It is frustrating seeing other cars passing you just because i have to stop and re-trimm servo. Servo is TowerPro MG995(metal gears) and servo saver is Tamiya high torque servo saver.
I have heard about graphite dust adding to servo saver? Hmmm...
Thanks for any thoughts.

Get a Kimbrough servo saver. Those Tamiya ones do have a tendency to wobble around.

I have been out of TCS or 1/10th racing for a decade and I found my fully hopped-up TCS prepped M-04 in the garage today. If I wanted to use the car with LiPo battery, what type of battery do I need to buy? Will it fit inside the battery slot?

Reedy and Yeah Racing sell lipo packs with the rounded edges to fit, but they are lower Mah capacity but should still be fine. There may be others.

That lipo is too square and will not fit unless you grind the chassis.

The Reedy 752 is awesome. I run it in several non-competition cars.
