Personally I can't see what difference it makes as all tracks have both left and right turns so surely your car should just be balanced

I won't claim to know what Lia does, but I know TOP makes some very good servo tape that I have used to mount servos. 3m makes a "super" version of their exterior mounting tape that is a dark grey rather than light grey and claims 10 lb holding power on the package. I can find it at Target and Walmart usually. Those two seem very similar to me and would be my best guess of what is used if I were forced to guess.

Lia uses the TOP tape as do I have had my servo in the car for over a year with no issues with tht tape... Have seen the case crack on servo trying to pry it off the chassis with the TOP tape

Haven't run mod in about 6 years, been running stock the past year now, ran mod on Saturday and it was a blast!

Anyone have a good setup or a link? It's a large indoor jack, med/high bite track

I can find any setups online

Normally mod setup is only different with tires and softer front springs ?

None I know of, but if your layout is similar to mine, it should drop right in if the dimensions are correct

I can set my vx1 in mine if you really need a pic, it's just a hair smaller than a stock spec and a touch less wide than the tekin, but a little longer if that makes sense
