The JR servos are larger than others and can be a pain in some cars. On the steering servo, I took a flat file to the sides only, so it wasn't so tight. Only a few strokes with the file though, so it slides in snug, not having to be forced in. On the small securing blocks, I used one with the lip in like the manual states, to take up the space and the other one flipped so the lip is down.

That would be a big waste of $500.... Just buy the essentials.. upper/lower arms, dif cases, shock towers...couple spare difs.

i dont see it as a waste, when you go to some of these races theres no hobby shop. 1 spare of everything is more gooder. if you replace as you use in the end you can still sell the car as whole. if you dont travel then ya you dont need parts if the hobby shop has everything

More gooder? Really? LOL


I would think it more beneficial to 2 or 3 sets of things that break commonly than just 1 set of everything that's normally in the kit.

So I have heard so many favorite "diff" setups so far I'm really confused ..................what the best "diff" setup if the traction is low ? I got my car just before CRCRC and have only run it indoor ..running 7/7/5 .......went outdoor last week and I was like a fish out of water ...LOL .......the right tires made a night and day difference but I just wonder if I don't need a different outdoor setup . Thanks guys !
