Question on servos (I know it has been talked to death). I run mounted to the chassis with tape right now. This enables me to use the Hitec HS-81 micro servo with the Calandra Pro-Strut front end. How much would that effect the geometry on this car?

Thanks
Jeff

For the record this micro servo does 0.11 sec/ 60 deg. @ 4.8V, 36.1 oz/in @ 4.8V, and only weighs 16.6g.

Do you mean the EC modified in Italy or the EC stock in Holland?

I'm certan there will be people from the factory present at the Holland race.
I would presume the Italian distributer being present at the Italian race but that I cannot confirm.

Just wondering why the use of tungsten for this application? I know tungsten is a very hard metal, but isn't the weight of tungsten an issue? With CRC, IRS, and Niftech all selling lightened diff rings, I wonder why heavy tungsten diff rings would be desirable...

Got our first shipment of cars in yesterday and just got done building and testing an s120 for a customer here at 360 RC Speedway. I was impressed with the car, Serpent did a nice job with it. Had a couple problems with part fitment and some missing hardware in the kit but otherwise can't really complain.

Got a chance to run a couple packs with it, I am not a t bar guy myself but it felt good and ran within a couple tenths of where it needs to be.
