Trying to lower the servo to get a parallel throttle link with the upper deck, any fix?

er why not mount the throttle linkage under the servo arm and then angle the carb ball to suit?

Wink Slope in the servo saver

i tried that but to no avail.
when angle the carb ball it touches the roll handle bar when slide extends..
To dremel it to give clearance to the carb slide could probably cause pre-mature failure of the handle bar..

I'm a new foam tire believer now BUT I do have so questions.

I want to stock up on some tires but I'm not sure what I should get. The stock tires are 37s right? I typically run on a blown parking lot track that is med to low traction.

What tire combo should I purchase?

Has anyone ordered from rcmodel.com.hk?

I was thinking about stocking up on Fast Tyres anyone have an opinion?

Thanks,
Puma

for me, i run 40/40 at my local track and sometimes 42/42 when temp goes up.
what you could do is to get some 37s (since your track is low-med traction) and some 40s. 42s may comes in handy if you have a set when visiting tracks that have better grip.
These are the 3 shores i carry in my tool box whenver i go to races...

mugen fast, ellegi technics, power tyres are better suited for me. They are all good tyres from the same manufacturer GRP, Italy.
I would recommend Harmony Model HK if you opt to get it from HK.
Send Mr Lam an email, tell him what you want, he has most of the items we want...

Do you mix and and match front and rears? I noticed at my local track they would run 40-45 front and 30 rears (All using Nitro shoes and NTC3s - I'm the ONLY one using a MTX3.

I used Nitro shoes the last time but didn't like the non-existant offset. I also liked the Fast Tyres when I had them but I'm not too clear on figuring out which to purchase.

I was planning on buying from rcmodel.com.hk b/c Harmony Model hasn't returned my email I'm in the USA so it's hard to call.)

So would this be a good stock pile?

Fast Tyres:
- Quantity 1 42 shore FRONT
- Quantity 2 40 shore FRONT
- Quantity 2 37 shore FRONT

- Quantity 2 40 shore REAR
- Quantity 2 37 shore REAR
- Quantity 2 42 shore REAR

Please let me know ASAP about to order either through Harmony (if they reply) or rcmodel.

Thanks,
Puma

i had once run 37 Front and 40 Rear on a medium grip track which required the front to be more planted.
The list seems what i have normally in my tool box. Fast tyres is good too!
Mr Lam checks his mail daily, perhaps we could get Manti be your messenger, right Manti? you dont mind, dont you? another good reason for you to visit Harmony while getting some goodies, huh!

Here is a picture of the track:

that track looks awesome but it looks a bit tight. i think it is the lens effect, isnt it?
