Great paintjob by the way! Looks super sick IMO .

I will get myself a BWOAH soon, and will use your data as reference. If all matches also for my mounting, then I will make sure to add the data of the measurements to PetitRC Bodyshell mounting file.
My pleasure.

I ran some more today and I think measuring to 28.5-29 will be best for the HRB. I've had to trim down the sides more as traction is coming up with our new carpet. That would also give some slight rake. That's sitting at a 5.2/5.4 ride height

Personally I've always used Futaba servos. Lately it's been either the BLS571 or BLS551.

I've personally been running this Savox for quite some time and love it.

If you run Sanwa, they have a more expensive version where you can adjust the speed and such from the radio, but servo's are almost double in cost.

I'm a little partial to KO.

Grasper or Flection gives you all the steering you need, and some you don't if you unlock its full potential.
