it sound like you binding take the arm off to the servo and move your whells back and forth it should be smooth if not start to loosen up the hub set screws(silver ones in the hubs) and the two screws in the back of the top cover (front of the top deck) they can push down hard on the servo saver

OK its pretty straight forward to work this one out. Your servo twists a servo horn, which pushes a rod turns the bellcranks which pushes the wheels. What you need to do first is make the car have the problem and see which portion of the system is not working. Does your servo return to centre? If it is then it will be pushing the rod back to centre, but the servo saver may be flexing giving the problem. You need to watch the system closely and see which part is preventing it returning to centre. If you can find this out post back here and we can help.

Page 22 and 23 of manual. On page 22 - you can see a portion of the servo saver that might be the culprit - #73482 (1) or (3).

You will have to simulate a load on the steering to see where the "break-down" is.

Wow man that rear is shaved. I'll post a shot of mine. I think it got scratched when I went over this bump at 20mph. I got like 5 inches of air time. The car even jumps well!

Now that the car is lowered is even more scratched... the funny thing is that the parking lot is smooth, but I guess it's rocks and pebbles...

Had to be those lil buggers. I clipped some and it made a loud noise as if some snapped. SO far the foam tires lasted even longer than my GRP foams I've had. They are great and provide awesome traction and handling. The R40 is an awesome car!

I use ellige foams, they work great... This weekend I'll be trying 35 shore all around to see how they work because usually I'll go over 2 sets of rear tires before I chage the front ones...

Haven't seen those, or maybe I have... Are those ones like serpent foams? If so, I have because my friend that's all he uses.. but I use the white ones... I get them from japan for $7.30 a pair. How much are they in the states?

LW2S comes with 21T ( or was it 22T )and 26T pinions I believe. You might order the 20T from tower to give you better low-end for 1st gear.

cool, I was counting on the towers picture and got to 22 and 28, but I'm not sure about it, so you think I should get the 20T and what spur? or should I leave it like that?
