Kimbrough Med. worked fine for me with stock 128 spur. I was able to fit up to a 40T pinion with plenty room...

Don't use extra shrink wrap on your cells.

Well that just happens to be what we're running...19turn. So is there any solution for those of us not running mod.

I've tried a GS and a Kimbrough, and neither quite fit right with the motor position and/or clearing the lower chassis.

I can understand that the team guys either are running mod, or aren't too concerned about the issue, while doing 19turn or stock. But us regular folks are a little concerned about our high dollar servos.

I mean, if you clip a board at speed, 'something' has too give. And anywhere else you strengthen (say with alum. bellcranks or alum servo arm) then your looking at breaking a servo.

The only real solution is never hit anything (aint gonna happen ) or a servo saver.

Can you tell us if its at least something Losi is looking into. Maybe even giving them to us for free since this is the only car I know of not to included a servo saver of some sort.

Funny...there is NO WAY a Kimbrough of any size will clear my motor...and thats with a 128/34...and thats not as tall as I wish to go. Maybe it's my servo, but I doubt I am the only one running a JR servo. I will post a pic tonight, but there clearly isn't a servo saver that will fit...one needs to be designed for this car PERIOD. There really needs to be some more infomation on this, it needs to be addressed!

You could always use a AE servo arm cause they break easier. That way you have some give and its real cheap to fix.

All I have done is removed the lip from the front of the tray.
Then filed down from the back of the screw holes at a 45deg angle to let the front cell sit further forward.

All my cells are just in the orginal heatshrink.

Im sure we wont have long to wait for the replacement tray anyway as Todd has said.
Do you have some pics of what you did?

I see that the f/r bulkhead set LOSA4310 is an availible part now. So I think I'll pick up a set and have them ready for the magic tray. Like I said, if it works, I'll be the first one in line for it.

Losi guys, any time table on its availibility?

Wannabee is running the Kimbrough medium and is able to get a 128/40 gear mesh with no problems.......
