Does anyone have a manual as to how to install the steering kit upgrade? I purchased some rubber sealed bearings for mine and installed 4 of them. I believe they go in the right spot since they all fit correctly. Though, I've had some centering problems and I know it's not the servo. So far it seems to center a bit better and the idea now is maybe it had to do with some breaking in. Anyone else still running their original R40 or jumping onto the Hara? I plan to stay with my upgraded original.

I have two bearings of the same size where the two spacers got in the part 73482, one sitting on top of it, and odd sized one sitting on top of the servo saver. Having the wheels center properly was mainly after turning left. I may need to re-adjust something and get rid of the sub trim. Funny with the subtrim it centers better than no subtrim at all. I'm using a JR Z-1. BTW my turbo head button came in so I'm gonna get it and slap it on the RB V12 Rody.

It sounds like you are getting some binding. Have you tried using a different servo? Try isolating each moving part and check for interference.

The steering seems fine and does the servo movement. I'll probably just drop in the digital servo from the 8th into the R40 and or get another digi servo for the R40 to save the time. Hitecs can go for sale or something afterwards. The futaba S3003 makes a great throttle/brake servo.

I hear you. I really like my Hitec servos. I have 7 of them. They are a really good value, but just don't seem to be as bullet proof as I would like them to be. They have worked fine for me for the last 7 or 8 years (I have had a couple go bad on me) since I only race local club races and I race in the sportsman class. I am in the process of replacing all my servos with Futaba to match my radio gear. The Hitec servos did allow me to get into rc at a time when money was really tight. Now, I have enough money, but much less time to mess with stiff that doesn't always work perfectly.

Yeah. Actually when I went to go run today the centering problem seemed to disappear. However I think I may go back to the stock gears as the shorter pinions with turbo has a bit too much punch. A more accurate test would be better with the stock pinions anyway since thats been used more often. Tuning was never an issue today with the turbo plug as it started up nice n easy just like always.

Rapid-Are you still using the stock gears on the LW .8 2speed? I tried the 20/26 although there is a 7 tooth difference between the stock pinions and a 6 tooth between spurs. I had the shredded gear but that was due to the screw coming out of the engine shaft. Still though the new gears I had were too punchy and had me sliding all over.I'll try another trial run maybe today if the weather is ok.
