For the shock oil: cap-silamm followed by the thickness, i.e. cap-silamm1200
For the diff oil: cap-sildiff followed by the thickness.

The diff oils are listed on the site, don't know why not all different shock oils are listed.

Default Lab C-01 - Steering Servo Horn ?

Hi all. Can someone please tell me what the best / correct steering servo horn is to use in a Lab C-01 ? I'm using a Futaba BLS451 servo and tried the horn from my NT1 (16mm between holes) however it seems 'wrong'. The angle of the link between the horn and the steering mechanism is pretty steep and it seems to bind / be tight when the servo is at 'neutral'. The servo also seems to 'rock' a little around the neutal position when it operates because of this tight linkage arrangement. This can't be good for the servo I think ?

I've already done the grinding thing with the dremel on the ball ends to attempt to relieve them but still to no avail. The problem seems to be that the link connects underneath the steering mechanism on this car but on all other cars I've had its been on the top. This results in the steep angle of the link.


Any help or advice greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Had the same issue and I solved it using balls from a Kyosho V1 RRR as they are longer - Kyosho 5.8mm Flanged Ball (4)
KYOVZ225.

Re arm I used the Hotbodies D8 buggy aluminium arm, needs to be shortened but spacing is a great fit.

Capricorn RC at http://www.capricornrc.com/capricorn...=142&id_lang=1 ships internationally and has a reputation for fast shipping. You can also get parts from at E-bay store "Mr. Kangaroo" at http://stores.ebay.com.au/kangaroocompany who has a rare 100 % E-bay rating.

Kindest regards,
Lars.
