SERVO CENTERED IN CRC MOUNTS! jr fits best

Rear end:
.075 bar
CRC white tube lube
green shock spring w/30wt oil

Tires...start with Majenta rears and Purple or Majenta fronts...only sauce inside half of front tire....3.5mm ride hight

fiberglass t-bar or carbon-fiber? I've got a .075 and a .076 fiberglass t-bar, and yeah, I'm into taping the batteries in.

good luck!

Could you share with us the JR servo number??

What other servo is suitable and convinient?? Fast, fast servo!!

Are those low profile servos from Futaba and KOPropo suitable for this car??
Specially considering using only four cells... receiver packs are not allowed in our little club...

Thanks!!

the 3400G has a faster/more precise motor in it....but its in the same case as the other servos(3650)

and many top pros have used heli versions in their touring cars for the last few years...

the 3650 is what I have used for years, until now...

The Jr DS3400G digitail is a good choice. That is what I have put in my last two 1:12th scale cars. It works great.
