I install last night the new servo saver arm with the newer 2 piece diff adjuster for the front Ball Diff and it hits the left bulkhead, so I had to go back installing the original servo saver arm.

I am using the rod linkage in top with the original servo saver; definitely this will not work because it will hit the ball diff (with 2 piece adjuster install), so I did change this but could not solve the problem with the left bulkhead.

Any recommendation how to solve this?
Is it the lever(short one) or the ball end that hit left bulkhead ?
Or the button head from the screw that hit the lower part of left bulkhead?
Check Pyramid link, I did use 5mm baljoint+ball end from my T1FK from servo saver arm to knuckle. But for arm that goes to servo Im still using 6mm one.

I'm just guessing but the way I read about it, for the same setting on the Tx with the steering servo, you get more throw for the new steering servo.

I think a simple reduction in the Tx setting on the steering throw will solve the problem.

Sorry, no dimensions. Just by eyeball methods. If you put both cars on the tweak station, you will notice that the 705 has a shorter wheelbase compared relatively to the 710.

Run the car stock first and save your money. If your track is small, then you may want to get the front ball diff or get the locking pins to lock the front to a solid axle. A lot of people like myself ran the car stock when it came out and did not have any problems. The car can be raced stock.

When the need arises, then upgrade or hop up. It can be a very expensive exercise if you were to get everything at one go.

Just make sure the car is built correctly. I personally think you should concentrate on the clutch and diff building.

If you go for a MS edition or more you will have to pay just as much as for the NovaMega's.

Julius Kollf his pitman learned me all the tricks to do it the right way.
Ah... The benefits of living in Holland ! Living in Mordor is not as good I can tell you.

Is Julius still around? I thought he was still somewhere holidaying...
