If you are going to shoe goo it, may as well forego the mounts, or just use the inner mount ( with shoe goo ). I've used shoe goo alone and it seems to hold fine . Regardless of any magical floating mounts for symmetrical flex....

Yeah shoe goo defeats the purpose of the floating servo mount. If you are installing it you are wanting the extra flex.

That mount is a piece of s***. Save your money for the T3'13 where they got it right with two inner holes.

I use a CSO floating mount I drill 2 holes in the chassis to mount it but it is strong fits great.

I was a fan of the mount too, now I think its useless after a certain technical person gave me a lesson lol.

Its obviously causing uneven flex as the battery is flat on the chassis but the Servo is not, until they pertrude the battery from the chassis its useless basically causing uneven flex.

I am going to tape mine down so I have flex even on both sides.

I'm doing the same before the local club race tomorrow. I do not notice the uneven flex or pretend too. My issue stems from the fact that the mount rotates causing my steering to be inconsistent. I am however glad that I cut the nub off of the chassis.

On carpet, they make the car very twitchy and don't seem to add anything to the handling.

On asphalt they do seem to sharpen up the steering slightly but only really make that difference provided the car is fairly stiff (standard top deck etc as opposed to stiff suspension), otherwise the effect is lost.

If there are any bumps in the track the graphite arms can make it a bit twitchy through corners.

In short, they are not a massive improvement but you might have to experiment to get the best out of them.

Can I ask why you're willing to use the central mount for more flex/less tweak, yet have stuff attached to your top deck?

But the batteries aren't screwed down, they are taped. The lipo can also flex a small amount while it's taped lengthways along the car. While the servo case won't flex at all and is attached across the car.

Default Xray alloy shock pistons

Are they any shock pistons from other manufactures that fit the alloy shock body, Also has any one tried using different shock o rings for the bottom of the shocks. I just tried some much more shock o rings and they were to small and let air in.

That is an I lap transponder it is servo taped to the top tray so it can send its IR signal out of the windshield. It has no effect on handling. Our club uses the I lap system I have a amb on the front on the bumper mount.
