Default steering angle

ok, what kind of upgrade part can i buy that would increase my steering angle? a better steering servo? i plan on going aluminium with all the steering components anyways, just to reduce slop, but its hard to get good drift angle with a horrible steering angle. any thoughts??

There are a few companies that make upgrades for the HPI E10 (other than HPI)

- Atomic Racing (http://www.rcatomic.com/atomic/index...id=91&Itemid=1)
- Hot Racing (http://www.hot-racing.com/index.cgi?c=419)
- Yeah Racing (http://www.yeahracing.com/catalog/fo...29_83_254.html)

You can usually find most of these upgrades on eBay.
I'm currently racing VTA. Check here for rules/info: http://www.usvintagetransam.com/

FYI penguin, revo diff pinion gears mesh with E10 diffs, they just need a different sized bearing.
Actually the stampede 4X4 rear diff pinion uses the exact same size bearing...

I bought a used E10 for $30...
that's about as much as I'd ever pay for one.
it needed the diffs replaced (they were included)
I shimmed the replacment diffs correctly too, there was TONS AND TONS of side-to-side play in the diff, which probably accounted for the stripped pinions.

and it also needs a new spur gear, and a motor mount.
$13 for a mount on rcmart isn't bad (I was going to make an order for other things anyway)
and about $10 shipped for a spur...

a total price of $50 still isn't bad
and I feel that it will be an adequate fun little basher as soon as that motor mount gets fixed. I only plan on installing a 27T, MAYBE a 20T stinger motor.
it's actually for my brother to mess around with, he doesn't need anything fancy.
I got myself a TA-05 at about the same time... I knew what I wanted

But: does it mesh with the E10 diff rings!?!?
"Let's go racing" I said.
