I might have to put my servo behind the posts but the chassis is so damn tight, I need help on which esc to put in...

Got a question about the turnbuckles, how in the world do you adjust them w/o marring them? Do you stick something small in the holes? -JB

Default car layout with carpet chassis

I don't know if it is from just practice or the 3.9 lower deck, but I just became a hell of a lot better in lap times

Hey Jeff, can you verify that I've got the right part numbers here for the thick chassis and all its related needs. Also, any chance you could provide prices for these parts? I'll be placing my order this week.

COR79357: 3.4mm RDX Graphite Topdeck
SRC100: 3.9mm RDX Milled Graphite Chassis
COR79363A: "RDX" Battery Strap.

Default servo location

Any point to mounting the servo behind the mounts , instead of in front like the instructions...

During the build I used a body pin. Afterwards I used a small RPM hex driver. These and the body mounts I could do without. I will probably end up getting some Lunsords.

It brings the weight of the servo in towards the center of the car. i believe this helps weight transfer and improves steering some. Someone correct me if I'm wrong -JB

Yeah, I'm not an engineer but I think they could've stuck with the design(which is nice) but have four holes instead of two... -JB

Default tierods

I took a piece of piano wire and bent a 90 deg on one end and left the other straight....Kind of like a real tierod tool for racecars ...simple and works..and jaybee I thought it might be a geometry thing ,your servo must be shorter than mine (ko 2173) cause it would hit the belt..

Well Jaybee,

The car could have possibly been designed to have the servo in a certain position. Thats why I haven;t really messed with it yet. If I had a scale and those xray chassis balancer things I would see if it made any diff lol.
