that carbon fibre motor protection brace pictured on your car, did you make that up? or is that a euro option thingy?

Hey Dynamite,

The carbon fibre motor protection brace is an official option from the FK05 that also fits perfectly on the T2.
The part number is 30 30 60.

Spillertwo - What servo are you running in your T2 and what are the specs.

What servo would be a good choice with good torque and speed, that won't hang over the chassis edge when servo needs to be shimmed. Digital preferrabley.

seems the profile of the top of the futabas mean they wont hang over.

The 9550 is fine for carpet, also KO are releasing a low profile servo this month, supposed to have better speks although they arenot released yet.

Dont know anyone who has tried an airtronics or a KO yet, sorry.

I think to shim a standard servo could be the way to go to help offset the weight from the battery .If you run the low profile servo you might have to add some weight in the area of the servo ?

If you look at pictures posted of the car so far, the weight that has been added to the car in general has been on the battery side...

If you run a JR servo (I have the 9000s in there) you need to shim the servo back A LOT to stop the arm binding on the top chassis. (Maybe 5mm) so the servo hangs off the edge of the chassis by quite a bit. I am putting a futaba low profile in tomorrow.
Your first problem....the car is only about 185-187 with NO shims.You can go to 190mm.Add shims.Do both the front and rear the same.Should fix your problem.(also makes the car more stable)

Second...Post picks of your servo problem...Want to see this. Can't see how XRay would miss something like that!!

There seem to be standards in servo case sizes, overall, but not in relation to the distance from the ears to the servo horn.

There are large variances in the length from the ears to the horn from manufacturer to manufacturer....in some cases there are large variances even within a given brand from model to model...

I had no problems with the servo at all .. But I do have another servo arm on it from the beginning...

I drove my car today for the first time WOOOWW it extreeemly fast .. the cornerspeed is way better than the FK05 .. My 1st battery and I allready was as quick as the fastest time with my FK05 !!! I was even faster the second battery

I like it !!
