ray,

i noticed that on rob's pics too. can you fit the servo behind the mounts? that's gotta give you two very different steering curves l/r. how are your epa's that way?

you might be able to flip it if you use the Futaba S9550 'half-ass" servo, but a regular one will prolly hit the belt.

ii didnt try flipping it, but ill look. that linkage setup looks just like mine, except i used an end holeon the saver, and put it to the top, otherwise the rod end hit the top of my servo at left lock.

and after using the bodypost nuts for a day, i swapped for some other posts... cant beat the clips! although, you shouldnt ever have a problem with them falling off. after they get some use, they loosen up, too. makes it a little easier on the nubs!

I cannot!! servo overlaps the belt.

Kevin-I forgot about those pics!! Thanks!!

Coool-I'll put my GTX oon its side, move everythng back inboard of the chassis.

I'll also move my steering link lver to the top forward hole as my link hits the servo at full throw.

Tamiyadriver - I have a S9550 that I'll be putting on my RDX. I'll let you know if that works out well. If not I'll be using a S9451.

Im just curious, what is the difference between the carpet car and the regular car. I might be in the market for a new car this spring/summer so It would be nice to know my options.

the difference is posted somewhere in this forum but basically the carpet car comes with a thicker chassis, front diff, and 4 degree caster blocks where the onroad car comes with a thinner 2.9 mil chassis, front 1 way and 2 degree caster blocks

theres different density arms? wouldnt you want the stiffest out there to make the shocks do the work? Im an offroad guy and thats the theory for us.....sometimes on a very loose track we will run an all plastic car but thats rare.

I believe the stiffest ones are aluminum. That hasn't proven to be the best material for a-arms. Once they are bent... you are out of luck.

they have different arms, 20%, 50%, 75% and the aluminum ones. the more percentage of the graphite the stiffer the arm is yes, but they also break easier to break, i have seen 75 arms break just driving in a straight line. i run 50% arms with the rubberneck bumper and havent broken an arm sense
