yep, that's exactly why i use it. it allows me to jump on the throttle ealier, and drive the car more aggresively (thottle wise) out of the corner with this setup. This is mainly due to the fact that pro squat allows the rear end to sit down more as the throttle is applied. I haven't noticed much effect on corner entry so i am very happy with it. I'm guessing i could subsequently run a thicker rear diff oil, so i could essentially have more mid and exit steering. The thicker rear diff oil would also make the car rotate a little less entering the corner and make the entry more stable...hmmm things to test next MoorebankRaceway clubday ay!

I don't think anyone on this thread knows gent. I asked
a question about belt tension earlier and got no answer. Maybe we should try asking on the 1:8 scale thread.

Quick Question

Could someone please direct me to a site that sells alluminum (or whatever works best) throttle and steering servo arms(Futaba servos) for the MTX-4. The ones i have came with the servos and their plastic. Ive tried the Ofna Purple arms, but they barley fit under the graphite upper deck in my MTX-4 (clearance issues). I cant seem to find the correct steering and throttle arms at my LHS, all they have is ofna. Which do you guys use and do they fit perfectly? I need for both Throttle and Steering.
Thanks

Take the ofna arm you have and grind it down with a dremel.

Well, I'm using Associated's NTC3 servo arms. They fit and don't have to worry about grinding them.

Here is the AE servo arm pulled from the NTC3 exploded diagram.

Part #9180.


If you are using Airtronics or Ko servo I would use the Servo arm from Airtronics with the steel sleeve.
