Two different positions?

Can't see my car right now... but mine has one position not 2.... (unlike an older model XRay I saw recently...)

The plastic adapters for the bearings of the servosaver are excentric. So you can move the servosaver a little if you turn these adapters by 180°.

I didn't because it looks like it would put the servo saver/post too close to the diff.

I posted on May the 18th in regards to the thrust bearings. 2 days later ( May 20th ), I go to my mailbox and sure enough, they they were. Two copper thrust bearings from RC America .
Now that's what I call service

Yeah, they did a great job of handling the whole thing.
Got mine right away as well.

changing the servo saver position has the same effect as changing the steering link pos. but in finer steps.

How in the heck do you get the snap ring out of the rear diff to replace the thrust bearing ... I have not got any pliers thin enough to get in the holes? Please someone help I need to fix this before I race the car tomorrow????

Thanks

I would suggest going to Xray's web site and looking at some of the setups that have been posted there. Check out the setups posted by Gabe. I'm using his spool setup and it works pretty well.

just wondering if anyone has tried a front overdrive spool set-up. is it possible since the smaller spur is 2 teeth smaller. usually you only need 1 tooth smaller to achieve overdrive

You can find snap ring pliers that are small enough at McMaster Carr (www.mcmaster.com). Otherwise you can just take two body clips, insert them in the snap ring hose and squeeze the clips with some needle nose pliers.
