Dustin, so does that mean its on the way?? I'm telling you brotha its the best "MOVE" you'll ever make! BTW, I think the straight 1.3x8 pistons I was talking with you about on the phone come with the TKI3 kit..

Get the "KYOSHO" racing pit trailer ready!

Servos is one of those things, yours just might be too fast, giving you the elusion that your cars setup is twitchy. I believe that any servo under .10 sec in buggy is gonna be a handful, especially driving a car as responsive as the 9.

Just a thought before you go chasing setup changes...
I just changed the speed servos to high torque servos and speed on the servos is .12 and my EPA is turned down but I could try a little less. So that I don't change the set up on the car love the way it's driving right now except the twitchy feeling.

What exactly would be the point of releasing a chassis for any car if there wasn't going to be some sort of change/improvement? And you should know as well as anyone, everything here is all 100% biased personal opinions. We're all biased because we work hard for the money that pays for our toys. No one is saying this is 100% true and undoubted facts, which will do the exact same thing for every single driver under every single condition, just 1 guy saying how it affected his drive. Stable essentially equals understeer because if it were steering more/sharper, that wouldn't be considered stable.

Just my 2cents.

Where is it twitchy Pete - in a straight line, on corner entry, etc? If it's in a straight line which you're talking about, what toe-in are you running? I had the exact same problem and I went from 3o toe-out to 0.5-1.0o toe-out and instantly the twitchy, unstable feeling was gone. Of course, this also affected corner entry, but I had no problems giving up some off-power steering as there was too much for me when running 3o toe-out and made the car over-rotate for my driving style.

If you're running 2+degrees front toe-out, try reducing the toe-out and that should definitely help with removing some of the twitchy feeling you're experiencing.
It's a little of both I will try it out meaning the toe next time I go out thanks for the help guys. I believe it's -2 in the front and -3 in the rear.

There's no such thing, no bearings anywhere near the brake cams. There are some flanged bushings though.

Not gonna help much, EPA is used to adjust overall steering throw, gives you more or less but if your car is twitchy, EPA won't affect that at all, just how much steering angle you have at max steering travel.

Can't understand why they keep speccing the SP pistons when everyone changes them out but they do and the TKI3 has them, not the straight 1.3x8 unfortunately.
