when you say adaptor do you mean the plastic hexagonal thing that goes in the middle of the disk that connects the disk to the diff?

so do you glue the plastic part to the diff?

When you say gets loose what do you mean. That piece is held in place by the bearing when its on the car. Why glue it in place.

With battery wire routing, I noticed at the EC Robert had drilled a hole in his top deck to keep the battery wire away from the servo horn, did not notice it at first, then wondered why, then after building mine realized why he may have done it.

If the problem is the wire coming from the steering servo why not invert it´s position? I know that it would require ajusting in the steering link/angle. But without having the car... I see it as a solution. The wire would come out to the front of the car like int the MTX4.

Best regards.

I'll find out soon enough, ordered a couple of low profile Savox last night, and the rest of the bits I needed to finish mine without borrowed parts (thanks Steve :-)).

Got to admit I'm a tiny bit worried about a good fit with the LP servos, with me wondering if I maybe should have ordered some of the regulars, but the LP's are so nice and compact now, off the top as well as the bottom case, hard not to want to use them, and keeps weight in more on the steering and creates some wire, weight and maybe transponder room behind the throttle servo.

Really though I did look at the Savox LP in my electric, and you can fold the lead basicly flat against the case and it does not seem to strain the wire, or bother the grommet much, and I know the Savox come up a shortish in length, so pushing the servos against one end of the mounts may create just enough of the room you need for the wire.

But I am tempted to grind a hole like Robert did, seems a nice place to route the battery wire to me.
