Default Parts ordering

Alright, I'm about to fill up my parts bag for this car and I got a huge question?

Where the heck are the kit spec parts???

I looked in the "Mongoose and Spare parts" section on RDLogics' site and after seeing like one page of regular parts, its all hop up stuff.

Do you have to call to order the kit spec replacement parts?

Hey guys, does anyone have any problems installing the steering servo?

Mine are futabas, and it seems like the throttle was a perfect fit into the slot, touching the receiver in stock position. However, the steering servo seems to far in front, with the ball stud touching the front bulkhead! And there is no more shifting back! as the servo's ass is already almost touching the throttle servo! With just enough spacing between them for the throttle servo's wire!

And experienced ones who encountered this before?

Some Futaba servos has that problem, the 9550 is a perfect fit though. To solve the problem with the servo arm hitting the bulkhead, heat up the servo horn and bend it so it's free, you may have to grind some material off the cup too.

heat up the plastic servo arm.
you can use a lighter.
gently heat it up.
makes it easier to bend the servo arm without breaking it!
oh .. don't heat up too long, or you'll melt it!

If you want I can give you the K-Factory and spare parts list. I believe Team Magic and RDLogics share same parts number.

I had problems fitting the steering servo in my Mongoose also. Use the spacers that they provide with the kit and shift the servo toward the front of the car and mount the ball stud on the back side of the servo arm. You'll want to grind a little bit off the cup so it wont bind up. And for the pinion I put a little bit of thread lock on it and havent had a problem in 2 months. Make sure the car rolls fairly smooth without the motor installed. Then check your clutch assembly. You should have very little play in the clutch, use the shims to make sure you have a tight fit, but make sure the pinions can spin freely after you tighten up the bolt.

how does the standard silver shock springs that come with the kit rank when compared to the other coloured springs? where do they fit?

harder or softer and relative to which?

The stock silver one is too soft, I would only recommend to use if you're racing in a very slippery or even a wet track. Highly suggest to use the red or orange for most track and yellow for med-high bite track.
