Sounds like that is my problem. It doesn't fit but maybe 40% of the metal gear. The horn not only rocks front to back but side to side also. HMMM.

Will have to hope I can find a AE Futaba horn this week.


Thanks guys.

Cool S U R G E !

You might have to use spacers on the servo post btw
the servo and the post to space it out so it don't hit the top deck also ! with the AE horn ! cause that would keep it from coming back to center also !

Check to see if your servo horn screw isn't bottoming out in the threads.
With the shallow horn, some screws are to long leaving the horn loose.

Dinamyte makes an alum flat horn and then mount the steering rod on the outside of the horn, you can then mount a standard size servo flush to the mounts and still keep it inside the chassis.

Well I have my T2 coming to me sometime this week. What setups do you recommend for rubber tire asphalt and for foam tire carpet? Just need a starting place so I have something to work with.


Thanks
Bob

Guys ,is there someone who knows if there is clear anodising on the T2 pieces.I had no problem anodising the FK05 (don't know how to post pics here to show you the result,so if someone can help?),but the T2 pieces seem to be a different case.If someone can help in that I might be able to help other T2 owners who wish to have a blue car.Thanks

I use a small plating company here in the DFW area for all of my anodizing needs. These are the guys that did Ralph Burch and Mike Dumas cars. Very reasonable price, great quality, and pretty quick turn around. PM me for more info.

There is a clear coat on the t2 parts for sure. I sent my stuff to the guy in Irving last week, we'll see how it turns out. Its a corally though.

Larry the guys in Irving are the ones that did my T2. You saw that first hand. Thier work is GREAT!

As for coatings and such, no worries. I sent some 1,2,3mm spacers with my kit that were from HPI and Duratrax that were blue and Purple to begin with. I can't tell which ones were which after they did the work.

As a matter of fact I liked thier work so much the carpet car is going out next week for some color work....
