Hi all,

i have seen in some pictures that people turn the servo round 90 degrees. What is the advantage of this and what is a good way of linking the servo in to the steering system?

Thanks, John

That puts you around Losi 35W. See chart.

Couple of questions for you TC guys. I am normally a off road guy but, I do understand the basics of TC setup. My question is, how far is to far with droop.
My car was dumping the front and spinning out. So I took out some rear droop down to 1.5 over ride height. How much more can I go?

I would start messing with another adjustment instead. If the front is literally dumping, is the rear inside wheel lifting at all? That could cause some problems. So you'll want to look into stiffening the front, or making the rear end roll around more.

Most usually have 3mm. over ride height but I've used up to 6.. on really bad tracks.
