Where do you have it exit the body?

If you are running a VDS shell then it is not a problem. If you are running a TC body just cut a hole large enough to put 2 fingers in from the top. Let the zip tie be long enough so that it just sticks out of this hole with the lid shut.

One thing. Make sure the hole is large enough or the zip tie is short enough that when you flip your car the zip tie does not get caught on the edge of the hole to open your tank!!

Thanks for the info. I run a TC body. The VDS body's just don't cut it for me in a Touring Car Class.

With a VDS on my 1.8th, there isnt a need for any zip ties. On the MTX does the tank stick out of the VDS body?

It is one of those unusual day! I guess it's because of the 1/8 race tomorrow! oh well!

We used to go on Sunday, because races will be over with by 2 and last Sunday when we went only 4 cars were running!

May be we should go again on Sunday!

As for the shim, it probably has one. It's just to thin to tell unless you put a hobby knife under it to see if it comes up. But BE VERY CAREFUL if you do that. You don't want to scar or bend the shim.

Now, for those running the Kawahara 2 speed. What is the purpose of the 2 balls in the center of the shoes? Is that how you adjust the shift point, or do you use the bolts with the springs?
Tommy,

Chris, richen the needles slightly. The air is denser (I think denser) and you need to let more fuel in to keep from being lean.

Moon, awesome site. THANKS!!!

Lightbulb Servo Saver

Hey Guys

I have a problem with my steering. My car seems to wander on long sweeper as though i have a weak servo in it. For example i can see the wheels move back from full lock to i guess the 3/4 of the throw in a twiching manner. I'm running a futaba 9252 digital servo so i know thats not the problem. Could it be the servo saver?? I have no idea. It's the only thing i could think of. Are the stock servo savers reliable. Should i upgrade to something better? or am i way off on my assuption. I run a diff in the front also, maybe that have something to do with it. Any help is appreciated. Thanks in advance.
