Not so jelly anymore. LOL

Although you did get to experience a great event in another part of the world, AND you got new goodies. I think it was worth it

Looks like it still uses both servo posts and has 2 mounting points. I will be looking for this to be released.

Yes it still uses both post but the outside post is not mounted to the chassis. Its turned over and mounts to the top servo plate. Then the plate mounts to the left bell crank and the new inside post that is taller. So it still attaches at two points on the chassis but the servo can be raised from the chassis to allow flex under neath. And you can visible see the chassis flex when installed under the servo.

I hope they fix this in the next car...it is a terrible design!

I am personally just using servo tape and the inside mount and it works just fine. No movement and it looks clean.

I think the Serpent car has a much better solution and if Xray is smart they will provide a similar solution on the new car.

I think the new design that is coming out is great. I think more will be doing something similar too.

To me the serpent one sucks because you cant even use a servo saver for those that want one. Just my opinion.

The new Yokomo only comes with one servo mount for the inside and servo tape as your using. So there is nothing wrong with that method either as it allows flex too.

Is there a video or any tips on how to build the shocks? I can not get these things right. I get the right rebound and then there's air in shocks, there's no air too much rebound etc.

mm. Are we talking the bolt on plate the comes with the 411? If so, my tamiya servo savers fit with no clearance issues.

where can I get one of the servomounts (306220)? Preferably not in Europe.

replace the shock o-rings if you keep getting air, also possibly a bent or worn shaft
