yup, thats the setup. its been working just about everywhere that i've run it on asphalt. i've made some personal changes, i like having the standard front diff, and to increase steering respponse i stood the front shocks up one hole on the tower. very smooth and the car carries a ton of corner speed and does not lose grip.

For me a spool and I am sure the rest of the team will be doing the same. I love this car with a spool....it does not even drive like it has a spool.

Same here! It feels nothing like the XXXS with a spool.

I saw that on Josh Numan's setup he was using BK brackets on the front and the back. Can anyone tell me where to buy those or even better the dimensions of them so I can make some myself. A picture would be helpful also. I think I'm going to give Josh's setup a try. Thanks!

I've got some already made or you can do them yourself. The bar has two holes in it that are .275" center to center. 1 hole is a through hole for the arm and the other is a tapped 4-40 thread for your shock end. The only problem I had with the original bars were that in a crash the bars would move because the shock screw only lays on top of the arms. The ones I'm making now have a lower lip to hook under the arms so they won't move under impact. I know most of you guys don't hit things but I DO!!! LMAO I needed the lower lip to keep mine in place. WD-these new ones I make out of aluminum "L" shaped metal and you can find it at HomeDepot or Lowes and places like that. Hollar if I can help you.

Default Futaba 9550

I know a few of you guys are running the Futaba 9550 servo and I was wondering how are they holding up? I have not run any car offroad or onroad in many years with a servo that had less than 94oz of torque. Does this servo have enough torque to really hold the tires in place under fast cornering? Just looking for some info. Thanks!

Brant....I have the 9550 in my JRXS and before that it was in my XXXS and pro-4. All I really race is foam tires carpet and it works just fine and has held up great. It has plenty of power and speed and lets you mount your PT infront of the servo a little easier with out extending the PT lead or creative mounting.

I dont run them any more but when I used to they were great servos. I'd definately say it's worth a shot, wont be wasting money on it.

I use the Fut9550 servo as well (eek, without a servo saver!). It's been super trusty so far. Once I go indoor, it will get a servo saver to cope with the heavier hits. The PT wire is just barely long enough to mount it up against the pudgy 9550.

Gee this car is quick.... it doesn't get much better this is (I need to replace the nut behind the wheel thou)

Thanks Todd, Bill, Pook, and everyone else for the advice and setup info'... it's been really good having you guys around to bounce idea's off.....

I ran my PB today at the track that has is hosting our State Titles... it's such a good feeling have a car that is sooo dynamic. It's hard to improve it (see above).

Todd ... special favour... I need you to come down-under to drive my car.... (Food & board provided)

And this is just the beginning for you...My car was flyin' through switchback turns yesterday until I cooked the motor during the race. I just have to learn to drive at these higher speeds.

If Todd can't make it, PookyT and I will be happy to come...if you can include the airfare too...he, he...
