Just moved to an xray from Tamiya and the car was awesome on asphalt here in the uk,never thought I would find a car as good as a Tamiya. Ran almost kit setup and the car was dialed. Just one thing which way on the servo saver do you move the settings to get less steering

Not answering your ? really but I had the same issue to much steering with the box set up. Try just going to softer springs in the rear or harder in the front. Hope this helps...

Try this..
1. Front 4.5 mm height 6mm droop. 3 holes in shocks.
2. Rear 5mm height 5.5mm droop. 3 holes in shocks.
3. Top Deck less 2 screws on rear.
4. Bottom deck less 2 screws on front (last 2 holes)and less 2 screws on rear (middle).
5. Servo Saver ackermann on No4.

Hope this helps.

noline, a 100t spur and a 44t pinion is a good place to start. You'll want pinions in the 40 to 50t range to fine tune.

For those motors, you'll probably want a few spurs smaller than a 100. I recommend a 90 and 92 spurs for that size track and pinions 45-55...FDR for 13.5 somewhere in the 4.0-4.2 range would be my starting point.

You may want to try heavier shock oil because with light shock oil + harder spring, the car will bounce too fast. The stock springs are alright and advise that setup to be done from there. Change the springs accordingly, should everything else failed.

Shock oil will remove some sensitivity from the steering action.

My current setup is:
40wt Trinity Shock Oil
3-Hole Piston
Sorex 40R (on all 4)
Ackermann on step 1
Front Shock mounting (on shock tower) on the 1st hole from centre of car
Rear Shock mounting (on shock tower) on the 4th hole from centre of car
Stiffest Flex (all screws on)
Front Multi-Diff
7.5R Novak BL/Orion 3600 Lipo

My current setup has quite sensitive steering response and understeers a little. I'm going to do EITHER the 2-hole piston on the front or changing the front shock oil to 50wt, as my 08 is rolling too much, though it's pretty good for chicanes and technical track. Just never get enough time to do those changes.

If you really don't need so much steering and don't have the time to do setups and such, then try this: installing the Hudy Aluminum Front Chassis Brace. It will make the car understeer and easier to drive.

I have tried that Front Brace on my 08 and didn't like the understeer, but it sure is easier to drive!

Hope it helps!
Alfie

P/S: I'm selling the brace to someone who needs it more. It's only used for less than 2 minutes on my '08, please make offer through PM. Thanks!
