Default new nuckles

i was trying to use the other hole on the purple nuckles, but the tyrod hits the servo saver arm.

is there a way around this problem? i was hoping to use them.

hyena boy: You would need to use the inner hole on the servo saver arma nd trim off the outside hole. After you do that, you will need to reset you endpoints on the radio to make sure you have full travel both directions.

v2_drag: I don't mean to be rude but have I raced with you? What's your name? As far as SoCal goes, I try to avoid that place It's just a very different track compared to anything else. It's a place you have to go to week in and week out to be consistently competitive there and it being 100+ miles away I don't get there often enough to be competitive.

My name is Jay, ya i know socal is a tough place to race but i raced there every like 2 times a weeks so it seemed normal to me. lol We used to say racing at socal is like the nats. When ever any one from socal went to some big race they said it was like a club race heheh

It's just very different. There are guys that I've raced there that I couldn't keep myself on the same lap. Those same guys were a lap or two slower than me at the Reedy Race this last year, an outdoor track where I'm much more comfortable and capable. Outdoor asphalt is where I'm in my element. I learned to race on parking lots.

Default Schumacher Parts

Does anyone know where i can get my hands on the sunk'n washers that the team guys are using on the upper decks of the car? Supposedly they help with tweak which is always something i consider when my car is not acting right. Please let me know.

They are not Take-Off or Factory works parts. They are a Schumacher part. I believe it is:
U2775 Alloy Top Deck Bushes & Screws - pk4 $5.99

You will have to ream out the 4 end holes in the top deck to get the bushings to fit in.

hyena boy: You will have to get a new servo saver arm if you want to go back to the other hole. You probably won't notice any difference by changing holes. If anything, the steering response might be a little quicker.

Mo he's talking about the purple washers that are counter sunk on top and flatt on the bottom.
You know the ones that a few companies sell in different anodized colors.

Here is a pic of teemus car with them!

AH! The Schumacher pieces are much more effective at controlling tweak. You should check them out too. My chassis rarely ever has to be "reset" since I've been running those.
