The best thing to do is to change the servo saver once a month and to keep everything chean as possible. I was told by a few racers, that's what they do just to insure nother wrong would happen during a race... I just couldn't see changing the servo saver every month... Something had to be fixed... Oiling the rails really didn't help anything... The binding still occured. When TM and K-Factroy came out with the new swing rack setup, I bought it along with the new steering blocks for added steering... Never had a problem. I drove the car at the ROAR western Reg. and never lost a front belt nor one tooth from the front belt. I've had the new system for about a month now... I've also have a Mugen MTX3 and my steering is just as good on my G4 as it is on my MTX3... You don't have to bullet proof the swing rack setup... Just a little massaging on the servo arm if you feel the arm is rubbing against the front belt while turning your front wheels... If you do happen to get the new steering system and have any questions... You can PM me... but it's best to ask your questions here as other may be having the same problems and can be address/answered at one time... Good luck.

its down to your inserts and rims, you want an insert with no air gap between tyre and insert, the bigger the air gap the more the tyres heat up, meaning your tyres go off.

tell me what type of tyres inserts ect your using and i will see if i can help

What was the track temp? 140 degrees F?

Here in Hawaii we usually get track temps averaging around 135F throughout the year. Tires used are usually Sorex 36R and 40R, Yokomo 138GF and 138GH, and recently the Take-Off CS-32 and CS-37.

As far as inserts go, Sorex thin firms, reg soft and HPI soft and med are regularly used.

Hi Guys,

Which new K-factory gears would be better on a tight track.

18T Brake and 18T 2-speed shaft or
20T Brake and 20T 2-speed shaft

Is the 20T better?

Thanks

Sami

18T Brake and 18T 2-speed shaft combo would be better for tighter and shorter tracks. It gives you a higher internal ratio of 2.67.

The stock pulleys are 19T Brake and 19T 2-speed shaft combo gives an internal ratio of 2.53.

The 20T Brake and 20T 2-speed shaft combo would be good for high speed sweeping tracks. The internal ratio goes down to 2.4.

Aside from the above, changing these pulleys would require changing belts also. Not so much on the side belt which can be taken up by the side belt tensioner but the rear belt needs to be different I think...
