And as for that radio tray, just how long did it take for you all to get the wires tucked away? I redone it about 6/7 times before I felt it was right.
I'm just hoping the car performance makes all this aggro worth it.
(the FW05 was never this frustrating to do)
The cup wont pop off if you trim the servo horn according to the manual.

They don't have much of a catalog, but if you call them, they can get you the part. They do alot of Phone orders. Give them a try. Plus they are just miles away from Kyosho america.

Default 1st mishap

Learned a valuable lesson today. Do not use a real good servo for throttle. Got t- boned and broke the servo case and servo arm. Looks like all I have to is replace the case. Figures, I dialed in the car and was just about there then boom. I could use just a little more rear. I was running 37s around. DOes anyone use harder tires up front?

Thanks for the replies, the thing is I ran on a lot, a little dusty, with road rails. To give an example, my tc3 was the dominate car hooked up perfectly(actually ran old 40s trued) at the track. When I switched to the rrr, (37's all around) I would try and turn around the same spot and right into the inside rail. Turning around the large 180's which took all the turning I could to hug the rail with the tc3 ,I would only be nudging the RRR car around. Took several tanks to learn how to control all that turn in. If not very careful, could spin out at the hairpin. Really only my third time out with it. Cannot wait for next week.

A little more rear toe in would help

I had to catch up on my work. I was away from my office(Jamaica) for 2 weeks and ended up with a backlog of stuff that I needed to clearup.

I am up to date now but I need a nitro fix for next weekend (28 & 29th) Any racing that weekend?

I heard that the racing was close and fierce. I always miss the good ones.
