Cyclops is right, just change the rear to a 47T (part#808376) and it should be fine.

Double check the eccentric bearing holder. There's a left and right position to it. If this still doesn't solve the issue, you may just shave a little bit of plastic off using a Xacto knife. You don't have to take too much, as the picture shows very small wear from the belt .

go back and change your servo arm to the "stock arm", it looks like the aluminum arm you are running is too "tall" and placing the ball end too close to the center of the car causing the rubbing...

give it a try and compare.....

I did check the bearing holder and it is good,i just found out that the jr servo is taller than futaba servo coz' one of my buddy doesnt have such problem on futaba for steering.
Thanks Joe

I have had my KO2343 servo since I got my 710 when it came out. Now it's in my 720 and still working . I went through a number of Airtronics servo for my throttle until I changed to a KO servo for throttle as well. Though our track is smaller compared to popular nitro tracks, I do race every week and really give my servos a workout.

My bro has one of the newer KO's available. I think it's the 2365?? but I'm not sure about the number. Anyways, he likes it a lot as well.
