Can someone recommend a good aluminum servo horn for my throttle/brake linkage? I just don't trust a trimmed plastic one to be durable enough.

Ofna makes good one, that has plastic inserts for different servo brands. They come in different colors. Check it out:

I ended up buying a plastic OFNA horn. The dynamite aluminum part I looked at contacted the fuel tank just like everything else...I trimmed the OFNA part. It's thick enough it doesn't make me nervous. Now I just have to find a ball cup that fits my STS carb. The one I have is too big.

the Sirio power clutch is available from kyosho but has to be ordered by the piece since Sirio has not sent them the full system I will try to post all the #
What do you mean exploded? I had my clutch exploded before, whcih is the centrifugal pop out and some melted. From your opinion, which is better the capricorn clutch assembly or the sirio clutch assembly?

Default front sway bar question

Hi

I set up my front swaybar / droop and now just have a small question..
I used robert maestrys droop setup as below:

"1. I set my eccentrics to parallel to the a-arms and tighten.
2. disconnect sway bar only removing the right sway leaving left one in place...
3.then ill use my down-stop gauge slide under left A-arm and set to desired point.
4.now ill move over to right side of car and will tighten or loosen the down-stop screw to the point that it allows the right sway bar to slide into the left sway without affecting the down-stop setting on the left side....I hope i haven't lost you guys....
5. OK the left has stayed at its setting lets say 0 down-stop setting now check what the right is at.....if the left is at 0 also then your set......if not use the right eccentric to raise or lower the arm to achieve the correct down-stop setting to match the opposite side....


Now once i have both arm heights the same i notice the right arm can be lifted more than the left before the sway bar engages. is this normal or does it affect the handling in anyway?? i spent a couple of hours trying to sort it out then just thought it was normal

Holy .... I am going to send my car to Robert just to have him set the front droop.

I know what your talking about...and due to the fact that the the cup and ball are not exact size there will always be a little play if not it would bind....this should not affect handling.....Hey Scott anytime all kidding aside there are many ways to do your droop guys so if you found a way you like then stick to ithope this helps

lay the shocks all the way down - kit springs and kit oil, that's about it; 40 or 42 shore tyre

X312T - 16/61 , 22/56.

start rich, bottom and top, lean off the top a notch at a time until you get the HP you want

mrgsr: I do know the play you are talking about. Robert addressed that. Don't worry about it.

Robert: Good luck at the winternats.
