It's hollow just like a SpeedtechRC spool. I'm gonna use this one for stock class and maybe 19t. I'll try out SpeedtechRC's spool for mod. I might even try the Yokomo one out for Mod as well. Now I just need the center pulley!!

Just stay off the pipes and you should be fine in mod with it.

Ive been running a spool in mod and the only problem that i overlooked are the stock cvd pins. i broke 6 pins in 6 runs. i bought a rayspeed cvd set (made by mip), used tc4 bones, and problem solved! my car handles great but got to try my long awaited jrxs first too see which suits me better coz i break most ofbthe time due to aggressive driving. i also got a tip on how to make a direct center pulley, just takes lessvthan 5min w a dremel and a nice thin bit, and the pulley pin. thats why theres another hole in the layshft, thars for the pin to hold the main gear in place, u need to take out one bearing though but its ok, measure the pin over the main gear adapter and mark where to dremel, then your done, now you got a center one-way and a direct diff all in one by jusr slipping in the pin.

Default Servo saver

The servo arm has been the weal link for us in this car.

We broke three of the standard arms during the first week.

All servo savers we could find had substantially shorter arm than the standard arm. It did not feel good to our team pilot so we haven't used after the first experiment.

I then found an old arm which I think came with a multiplex servo. The material is thicker and seems like nylon when the original arm feels more like plain hard plastic. The nylon arm is almost the same length as the original.
This arm has now worked well even if it has taken a couple of hits in the last weeks racing and practising.

you could try a kimbrough mid sized servo saver on a diagonal and just cut away the excess material.

I was just wondering, are those both your cars?

If so, why are they so different???

No, no, these were the two first BD's which were at a race in switzerland once.

The one with the servo saver was mine and the other was from Jean-Marc Betticher (multiple swiss national champion)

I put a kimborough medium servo saver on my car as soon as I built it. In the past I've had the yokomo servo arms "skip" on the servo's output gear after a hard hit, now I always run some type of servo saver.
