Triple post!

For the servos, I cut all my servo leads and on/off switch shorter and soldered them back. After all that, it's still not tidy!

BrainTeased... Try this link for all your engine questions... Note... Always use long plugs in Novarossi based engines... OS. plugs are short plugs.... Here's the link and good luck.

Default Short Servo Wires....

Quote:
any " short lead " servo recommendations
Simply remove the servo case, unsolder the 3-wires from the circuit board and shorten them to where you need them, then re-attach.

(yes, they are small wires....and you need some skill with a soldering iron....but it's a simple process and may be perfected after only a few attempts......the key is to get the solder out of the holes in the board following wire removal while it's hot, leaving an open hole to insert the shorter wire in....then just heat and touch a small amount of solder back on......)

Just be careful what you heat, use a SMALL tip on the iron, and pay attention to the wire order on the board before you remove them....don't put them back in the wrong place......

Guaranteed to give you a clean wiring installation......

Removes weight from the car also......for those of you looking to save a few grams....

Default Do you guys have this problem with front wide bumper?

This is my second bumper already. The problem is that the plastic made bumper will bend down (both edge) after few runs and is touching the ground. (Causing it under-streering)
But no matter how hard i try to make it staright, it will bend down again. You guys have this problem and how do you advoid that?

Thanks.

I run TC, and do not use it. The Bumper with its small bumper mount works just fine.

Default Droopy Bumper

I know this isn't a trackside fix but when you get home boil it for a bit.....bend it back up. I'd suggest keeping a couple bumpers anyhow and if this doesn't keep you on the track...........Don't hit stuff. Just teasin' When I kept having to do that, it's all I kept hearing from everyone!

front bumper drooping
I just heat up the plastic bumper good and hot with a butane torch and re-bend it back into shape, or actually make it curve up a little, works good for me and if heated enough it will not droop again until quite some time. I have been tempted to try the small front bumper , but I like my car to be as stout as possible (I don't stress much about weight and cg) and it appears that you could sustain damage much easier by running the little bumper.

On a side note do you all think the MTX-4 will have a third pivot ball in the rear for the camber link? Is this set up as durable as what we currently have on the MTX-3?

I doubt it...you would lose the ability to adjust the camber gain.
