    Hi Jared,

    My first thought would be to buy a Carisma GTB and swap the electrics over, It has a much better servo saver and that is 90% of the steering issues most people find with the GT14B's the other option is to put washers in the saver to compress the spring and take out unwanted 'squish'. Pinion wise,on my GT14B I was running the stock 4500kv motor on a 16t and stock spur, from the youtube clip below it was definitely quick enough!

    All that said I am a big fan of both the mini8 and the LC, out of the two I'd for the LC - The diffs are amazingly smooth, built like a tank and it rewards you for driving it like you stole it! (perfect for me!) The min8 might be better supported parts wise

    Thats an interesting Tire combo! I've never mixed blocks with pins! on poolished floors I normally run white blocks alround

    Hi Rob, just after a bit of advice please. I love my GT14b, nice and balanced being a saddle pack (cheap individual hobby king compacts). Racing on 2s I've just had to go to a 14t pinion over the 12 to try and catch the Losi M8's. Getting parts is a pain and the steering lock is nowhere near a M8.
    Should I try and get more off power steering or buy a M8 or a LC

    Many thanks

    By the way, we race on varnished wooden floors, unless I get there early and I put some carpet down on the corners so my car will turn. Using SST rally's on front and SST mini pins on rear, both yellow.
