Sorry, quick question. What's the diameter of 1/8 scale tires? Do they need to be trued, or can you run them out of the box?

The 7mm split is important to have steering otherwise just true for purpose like quali`s and finals regarding timelapse.

Where I run I like using 67 mm for the front and 74 mm for the rear.

Question, I have a 2013/2014 model I believe. Iíve seen set up sheet that show spur gears are 45/49. Newer models show 55/59 on the newer models.

Why such a huge difference between model year?

Any my issues with my 2013 running 55/59?

Thank you.

The older has modul-1 teeth (bigger) The newer has modul 0.8 teeth (smaller). There is no reason to switch to the smaller teeth unless you can not get the bigger ones anymore.

I wanted to ask, is anyone running the Chassis Balancing weights PN# 309840? If so, do you find they may interfere with the Throttle Servo body at all?

And where is the best place for weights to help balance the car? I have a 2013.

Thanks.

Thanks.
The weights I was asking about were on the new 2018 car as it is slotted for them. I know on our 2013 it is not slotted, but we have run the brass lipo tray and front brass insert.

now i have the Serpent 977, been doing first what the guys told me and had problems. changed to my baking method and lost the clutch problems. All smiles again.

Worth a try and keep it secret so you gain an advantage
i use hard springs though

have fun.
200C degrees or Fahrenheit?
