I moved the location of the antenna holding post to between the servo and upper deck standoff.

I removed the CF between the two servo holes (my Futaba S9451 was right in the middle of two holes) so I can secure my servo down without taking realestate away from the electronics.

Milled part of the motor hold down away so it clears kimbrough spur gears. Little things like that, not too major

dway100, looks like John's mods are form following function...I wouldn't blindly do them to your car unless you need it.

John, those are some of the things I did with the servo and motor mount. Guys, this way you don't have to shave every spur, especially durning a meet. Just take a sharpy and mark out the shape of the spur on the motor mount. And then shave off about a mm by grinding it on the side of a grinding wheel on a bench grinder. Comes out clean and you never need to worry about spurs fitting.

Default first race with the fk05

This car is just awesome. I have been racing for 4 years now and I have never had a change in cars improve my times by 1-2 laps. The pro 4 I had never drove this good out of the box with just a few changes to the stock setup

A better solution using common household materials, locks that battery in with no movement whatsoever:

First...That will cause your chassis to tweak BAD. Take it off and tape your batts in.
Second.. How did you get that spur gear in.Thought those didn't fit?

Spur gear fits fine:



I'm checking out the tweak situation now, I didn't even thin about that ...it's kind of a pain to tape then in this car and they were "wiggling around" which I didn't like, my velcro solution was better than tape but they still wiggled around.

...stay tuned!

It looks like a RW gear. Same as the one in my 12 scale.

Which is why I was asking...all of the ones I've seen where an 8 hole pattern on the inner ring....

I'd like to get ahold of some if they have a 6-hole...
