Its a CSO Racing servo mount. Mostly any mount will work. You'll have to drill and countersink another hole on the chassis. I also cut off the little nub on the side of the chassis too.

So I can expect to see an orange one on your car by the next race.

Blah, removed 50% of the slop with new hub bearings and Tamiya 4.8mm ball connectors but still very sloppy, especially up front. The C-hub lower hinge pin hole is too big. Can change the caster a few degrees just by moving it around a little.

Wished someone made a high quality 4WD mini. Got to bug Cam at the next race and see if TOP mini suspension parts will work.

Brad I haven't run it that way. It looks like it will will clear the battery. I guess it was set up like this because originally the car had a rear diff and something to do with the diff screw loosening (my assumption).

Is the front belt rubbing on the inner mounting tab on the servo?

I think most people are running the longer belt along the battery side. I do it for bit more room on electronics side to stuff my wiring neatly.

yeah there was no way the belt was going to fit, and i used a different servo mount which made it worse, as the kit plastic ones didnt even want to tighten up due to the two screws hitting each other.

i must agree not the best kit as in terms of build quality, i even got the wrong half of the gear diff, one side 38 the other 34, and a few screws missing. luckily i got it from a LHS so will get replaced.

Funny things about this kit and the things you have to do to get rolling! But once you do its pretty cool car. I moved the belt as like my xray to see what would happen for handling but pretty much the same results. I do know that the aluminum servo holders clear the belt for some reason though. I wish Xray made one of these cause the quality would be better than this!

Josh Xray made a mini years ago, T1M. I died along with the Corally mini Assassin and the Yokomo MR4 TC mini.

The original kit didn't have screws hitting problem. Atomic forgot about the thinner chassis in the Lipo version....

You guys realize by flipping the front belt, the hole pattern in the spool are now spinning the wrong way.
