I don't even use heat tape anymore because it's not a heat issue. I put tape on tank and that's it.
Traction..... I've got to keep from riding wheelies on one part of local track! That's with a 3 port!

If you get a get a couple of spare servo saver setups you will end up with some extra servo mounts. I used the extra rear-front servo mounts (the extended ones with mounting hole on top for the radio box) to mount the steering servo. I then screwed a strip of thick plastic between the upper holes and mounted the fuel filter to this. You could mount a splash shield to the mounts instead if you prefer....or even a splash shield and mount the fuel filter to it too...

Haven't measured capacity with routing/filter yet though....

You can run but I'd trim more off rear brace. You can remove the front screw from brace which will let you trim more off since you're left with two screws side by side.

Should be fine. Unfortunately I have a similar issue w/ my new M2C adj. clutch setup. Moves the clutchbell quite a bit forward... As long as you have at least half of the gears touching it should be fine, granted it will wear quicker. But there is no other way around it shy of notching out the chassis holes and moving everything back a bit.

And I assure you it IS a heat problem... Depending on the servo used, it may sit too close to the motor (like my JR 8917hv's did). I killed 2 of them in the exact same manner as mentioned... Cutting out, would work, then do it again. I put in a Savox 1268 I believe? (too early to go look) which has an overall MUCH smaller case. 3 racedays/ practice days down and not a single problem. Where as I killed the 2 JR's in the same day....

I fried an xp 1015 first. Then a savox 1257, both with dbl sided tape and heat tape on bottom and on back facing engine. Since I raised servo with 3mm locknuts and cut the rx box to the tab that holds wires, I haven't had a problem.

I've been running 2 x ACE DS1015 (same as XPs) since I got the car and haven't had a problem so far. I have put 1.5mm spacers between the servo and the mounting blocks though as they are deeper than most other servos (so spaces them away from the centre line slightly).

Any advice on grabbing wheelies now and then other than letting off throttle?

I went ahead and raised the steering servo the same. I like the gap and better for cleaning and keeps fuel off it.

I ended up using a Losi collet because it's shorter And it's closer
