Got her to the track and the Guy who runs the Shop Fixed My issue,something with the Esc.Truck ran Great on the asphalt! Once I got used to the Quirkiness of the truck and the tires grooving in ,it was a Blast to Drive. 1 mil in the front and rear with 200k.Clikin Laps was Easy and Fun.
Even had time to trim My new Body and dremel out the Ruff spots.Very Fun Truck. Ps Thanks to Darrin At Rev Raceway Montclair.Fun class there 1st Sat every month.

Default Servo

I'm toying around with getting a euro and wondered what affordable servo's could be recommended. I'm sure a low profile but i didn't want to get one thats too fast on the speed. My TC has a Power HD @ 0.06 and its crazy fast for me. My buggies and ST have a Power HD @ 0.08 and they're probably too fast.

Can't you slow the servo speed down on your transmitter?

I just didn't want it to tip straight over if it was too fast. I have a Flysky GT3c, i'm not sure if i can turn down the speeds. I used to turn to my co worker with 30 plus years of experience for this kinda thing but he quit and i can't get hold of him anymore. Is there a way i can turn it down a bit?

Any capable servo will be just fine. Savox 1254 is a common servo.

One of the most competitive guys at our track is using a $12 servo.

Be sure to do the manual suggested bolting of the corners. It's not an easy paint or sticker job, but it comes out so nice.

What's the word on TCS rules and foam inserts for Euro Trucks? Digging through the rules, there's zero mention this year of foam inserts for the class and they've changed the rules around gluing. So it seems to me that it begs the question of whether or not tire inserts are allowed?

I don't think they make a significant difference (my testing doesn't seem to show evidence of improvement between foams/no foams), but it seems like it's worth fleshing out ahead of tech. My inclination is that, because foam inserts aren't included in the kit, they aren't legal.

They are not allowed because we are supposed to build according to the manual and the kit, unless otherwise allowed, such as changing the battery connector to Deans. Inserts are not included in the kit. We just had this discussion at our local track.
