How are you breaking the spec-r dcj's? Both are as good as each other, all you need to do is rebuild them often to get the slop out of it and you will be fine.

Also are you using the version 1 spec r or version 2?

Bump for a good car. Next round of ETS is here... Good luck to Team Yokomo!

By the way I solved my steering issue. It all came down to the the length of the yoke on my servo saver. It was a bit too short. Switched it out for longer one and I have regained my steering. IDIOT!!!! 15 years of racing and I still make stupid mistakes. When I broke the original stock arm I had switched to a servo saver. The control tire at the race was so soft and had so much steering that I didn't notice it. But since then, using a "normal" tire, (Sorex 32-36) I had no steering. The arm swap did the trick and now peace has been restored in my world. LOL!!

So I advise to measure the distance from the center of your servo spline to the center of the hole on the stock servo arm and make sure your replacement is of VERY similar length.

Thanks Fred

The TC6/6.1 spools work well and use blades. Just takes a few shims.

31337 for the slipper spool and 31339 for the new 6.1 spool.

Generally it looks like they use the standard W chassis although there has been mention of longer chassis etc...
