I believe this was covered way back... Shortened

Cut the metal (the stock rod linkage) down to 17 mm. Stock lenght of the rod linkage is 23 mm from tip to tip.

As for the plastic, trim the length of the ball cups. The picture attached shows the top one being the original (and uncut) and the bottom one is the one that was trimmed.



This combo gives the total length of the ball cups and rod linkage assembly as 39.5 mm instead of 44.5 mm as per the manual.

At neutral position, the steering servo horn is not in the center. It should be leaning forward slightly at neutral position with this linkage mod.

I bet you kept that shell !

Ummm, you need to cut out cooling holes. Else with them touching the car like that, the engine will surely overheat.

Listen, 6 bodyshells without tax is no good without the RRR that you chose to ignore and not bring.

Sorry that I could not bring it along with me. I had a lot of work related stuff to carry along with me for the annual company meeting.

Aren't you coming down some time soon?
