does anyone else think that the countersunk washers on the top deck would cause it to be stiffer than without?? see above pics to see what im talking about. Seems to me the larger area covered by them would make the chassis stiffer.

Before I was able to receive my wide top deck for the FK05, I used them on the standard top deck to stiffen the entire structure up nicely.

I remember reading somewhere on this forum that the space for the servo is smaller than the FK'05 can anyboby confirm this?

I dont like the way it looks when half the servo is hanging off the side of the chassis..

I have a Jr Digital servo which I believe is bigger then other company's servo's. I think.

That was the old gears...They changed over when the FK05 came out.

It look the same but the servo may need to be shim so the link don't rub on the top deck... I mounted the link on the other side so the servos stays in the middle as much as possible.

if you mount the servo to the outside of the servo posts, then a little bit of the servo will hang off the side. however i found a dynamite alum servo horn that is thin and will allow you to mount the servo to the inside of the posts and move it towards the cars centerline about 6-7mm.

Like this? I had to do that last night. I couldnt stand having all that servo hanging off the side, and then having the link at such an odd angle.

I used a GS servo horn tho...

No. He means mount the servo on the inside of the posts.
