    RE: CURB

    Crash into the curb again, it might knock something back into place.

    If you don't want to do that let us know what car you have and perhaps take a photo of any damage done so we can more accurately help you out.

    RE: CURB

    Dare say u have just knocked something, doubble check that nothing is broken or missing, some cars have some fuel hose on the brake linkage to smoothen out initial break force so doubble check that.

    Then

    readjusting everything, brake linkages, servo neutral pont, servo end points and pads

    RE: CURB

    You need to probably re-adjust the brakes on it. There a lot of ways to do this. However, since it was a crash, you probably want to take out the transmission and inspect the brakes properly. I have an Exceed Forza, and they don't handle going into curbs very well. ;-)

    I created a video on how to disassemble/reassemble brakes for the Exceed Forza (as well as how to troubleshoot the brake system). PM me if you'fd like me to send you the link to the video. Thanks

    Why not simply post the video, then other people with the same problem can watch it for years to come?
