Modified the steering to avoid rocks getting stuck and jamming up steering control.

oh my goodness. I was just making the exact same mod last night but gave up. Thinking I should just wait for the yeah racing gear to show up first.

That's going to flex like crazy. It would be better to run the drag-link in the stock location and cut a hole under it so debris can fall out.

Much smaller than the tires on my 1:10 buggy. Oh well.

I doubt it, but I'll find out for sure when I'm done putting it together and take it out for testing. It's all aluminum, drilled and tapped and screwed with 12mm screws at each end, still utilizing the bearings for smooth movement. All precisely fitted with no slop or slack anywhere. If it is noticeably worse, I'll just take the posts out and put it back in stock location.
There is no way I'm cutting into an already quite flexible chassis, let alone the CF driveshaft cover.

Pinch the two bellcranks together. That's the flex I'm talking about. It might not be much, but it might be just enough to make the handling squirrely, since the servo only directly connects to one of the two bellcranks.

Default Whats up with this spur?

So are any of you guys experiencing strange wear on their spur gear like this. It looks as if its been rubbing, heating up and melting. I found no debris or anything out of place. This is my second spur. The first one had the same bizaare wear pattern but not the reason for its failure. Oh and look what finaly showed in the mail today. Time for a retro fit.

Interesting I'm in the process of upgrading my spur either back to factory 66 or 70 until the high speed upgrade spur/pinion become available next month from hpi. The stock 66 spur is cheap but yours looks upgraded so I'm curious about the wear your showing...what gear are you running?

I am using a Robinson Racing Products 66 tooth. This is holding up except for the strange wear. But then my original had the same wear.

Default No Rock MOD

I just took two pieces of the loop < fuzzy > velcro and put under the arms connecting the tie rods. I also use a shorty battery placed in the middle for better weight and balance.[IMG][/IMG]
I have ran it for about two hours on my street with NO rocks binding the steering.

Default Full chassis mods

[IMG][/IMG]
This is what my "modified" RS4 looks like. Chassis is about only stock item. Can't see but towers are carbon fiber also. We use 13.5T motors at our track.
