Looks like we have the same plan

This is totally incorrect, Part of how you get better corner speed is getting a balanced car, BUT getting more corner speed is possible with setup changes. So infact your generating more front and rear grip. Otherwise we would be running with the same corner speed from back in the T1 days...

really, would Hitec make a servo for the on-road TC guys?

Thats a fact, I was trying to be nice... But yea, When I look for a servo the minimum requirement is it must center itself.

That was always my impression, but all these off road dudes tell me how awesome HiTec is...

I still don't buy it though

People never go straight in offroad, or can even tell if they are going straight. I guess that's why.

They spend a lot of time with their tires off the ground in offroad, that's why they don't really realize how bad Hitec really does suck.
