Yeah they were getting very tight and I was afraid of breaking or stripping the A-arm. As long as I have the camber close does it matter if I use the A or B hole. What does it do the steering/handling?

To tell you the truth I've never tried it in the B hole so I don't know if you can feel the difference.

i will be looking for you

I'm sorry, but when I first read this statement I laughed my B hole off. Think about it.

Mmm...much tighter with the b hole. I digress.

I did try using the one center dot insert in the rear pivot and it seemed to slide eAsier, but it was really controllable. I did better with it and thought it would be worse.

Default Help!

I have $200 bucks till after my next race and my RC8T RS is needing some love. I need 2 servos and a Tx/Rx for 200 bones. Give or take 20. Any suggestions on what I can put together with that? I would like to, but don't have to, get 1 good hitec servo and whatever for the other that will work and I'd like to have a 2.4 system with a screen. Any suggestions greatly appreciated the Oh. state fair race is next weekend and I've signed up and now I'm broken.

Anybody having any problems pulling the rear shock shaft out from the end of the shock ends? Is there a fix for this? I set the rear droop to 122mm and the length of the shock is 125mm. Is there a longer shock end from another car that works?

Eli- are you using the HD shafts with the 4mm threads, or the older shafts that have the threads that are smaller? I had it happen a few times with the older ones, but not with the HD ends.
