Default Yokomo LCG problem

Evening every one,

Im posting this for a freind who is currently building his new yokomo lcg touring car, the problem is one of holes for a counter sunk screw to hold the servo post in place has not been counter sunk, so as you can imagine hes goping to have a problem with the screw sticking out. Now i havent seen the car in person yet we have only spoken over the phone, is this an error on Yokomo's behalf? and does any one have a solution to the problem as he doesnt want to send the chassis back after he took the time to file the chassis and seal the edges, i supose he will have to countersink but hes not keen on that, any other ideas?

Cheers

Tom

hi,

there all like that, you can just file the sides of the hole at and angle to make it a countersunk shape, the only other way is to countersink it properly, or just leave it,

but there is no need to send it back to yokomo, as they are all made like this and there is no fault with his,

You can pick up a countersink bit at some hardware stores, it's a good tool to own.

Do you reckon it was time/money saving not countersinking that hole??? i cant find any reason why it isnt countersunk, its like it on the SD, BD, LCG.

the reason i THINK it isnt countersunk is because if you look at all the pictures of the team drivers lcg's then you will notice that they mount the servo further fowards and towards the middle more and use the fixed steering arm (not servo saver). they dont use the mount on the servo to mount it, you can see they have been cutoff, i dont know how they mount the servo like this without it moving, it seems quite risky to me. so if there not using the servo mounts then they wont mind about that piece not being countersunk as there is no screw to go through it.
