Of the RTRs, is there a better configuration to buy, or just get any of them? Maybe additional options for minimal cost (like converting to MT, Truggy, Buggy, etc) or better motor, etc.

I did that and it turns to the left fine but only about halfway to the right. The servo also makes a really weird noise when I turn the wheels. I think I'll just try a new servo. Any recommendations on a good metal gear servo that will fit. Hopefully a direct fit one if not then I'll have to mod one.

The truggy, sct and rally car have a 225mm wheelbase and the buggy and MT have a 185mm wheelbase. The longer wheelbase is a little more stable at high speeds and the shorter wheelbase is quicker around tight turns. The truggy comes with a bigger motor otherwise they all have the same parts outside of the wheels/tires, bumpers and bodies.

For the servo here is a replacement one. The size makes it difficult to find aftermarket options. There is a floating servo mount which allows you to use different sized servos but I can't remember who carries it.

Pick the style you like and go with it. What do you want to do with it?

Race? Buggy
Bash? SCT or MT
On-road shenanigans? Rally
All-arounder? Truggy

LC Racing Floating Servo Mount

Says itís for 1/12, not 1/14 though.

For fun. The MT was my original consideration but it will be the Truggy. Maybe pick up the LC12 body too and toss some street tires on. 🤣

If I go Truggy Iím guessing Iíll need pinions for smaller tires. The LC12 body utilizes the longer wheelbase correct? Any spares needed off hand? I keep seeing/reading itís pretty tough.

That's the servo I have installed right now. I'm thinking maybe the plastic servo horn is stripped. When I took off the servo horn and readjusted/centered the servo it turned both directions fine. When I began running the car is when it began turning fine to one side and not so much the either. I ordered a metal servo horn to see if that fixes the issue.


And it looks like that servo mount is only for the 1/12 vehicles unfortunately.

That is the floating servo mount I was thinking about. It says it's designed for the LC12B1 but it can be used on the other vehicles if you drill some mounting holes in the chassis. You can probably use it on the smaller 185mm chassis (1/14) but the receiver will have to be repositioned to allow it. The Batan 135f servo actually works pretty good in my experience. I don't have the truggy so I don't tax the servo with those heavy tires but with buggy/SCT or TC tires it works great and if it acts up I put in another. At $17 it not a big deal.

The most commonly replaced parts are the esc, servo, bearings and dog bones.

I upgraded to the metal geared one, as I ended up stripping the gears in the stock plastic one, and it works great for me. https://casterracingmi.com/index.php...=ASC&limit=100

Thanks to a discount code from LC Racing I ended up with the Aluminium Hubs and steering knuckles.

Iím not seeing a link on either the US site or the Chinese site? 20% would be great toward a second truck.
