There's a few ways. It could be the settings on your remote. It could be the two screws holding the break pads. It could be the fuel line link on your break, too long or too short. Or screw in or out the screw that hold the fuel line link for your break.

Does anyone know how to re position the steering servo?I cant fully turn my wheels to the left due to that the servo is on the way.

Just throw me some ideas and I will try them.

Take the servo saver off, center the servo trim on the remote and put it back on with the tires pointed straight and then you can adjust the trim if needed.

That's not the problem. The problem is that the steering arm hits the servo

I have tilted the servo at an angle. It works fine. i will post up picture soon so if anyone has that problem.

A few days ago I slid into a puddle of mud so my car is all muddy I tried cleaning it but then there is places that its hard to reach and clean, I ordered Boca bearings and will be replacing soon, i will be taking my car apart to replace all the bearings and in the process i will clean my entire car, can anyone tell me what the best stuff to use to clean with?

Ive seen nitro cleaner but its good for de greasing, and Ive seen people use wd40 also. Please point me to the right direction.

Get yourself a decent air compressor as well. After EVERY run I like to blow off the cooling head by the glow plug, the fuel tank, the exterior of the carb, all drive shafts, and all four corners of the vehicle.

What you should do is turn on both receiver and radio. Turn off the radio then the servo will neutralize, unscrew the throttle servo horn. Lift it up an pull it back till the disc breaks lock the disc break. Once you find the position you want set the servo horn onto the servo and tighten screw back on.

Well I've taken my entire car apart in clouding opening the differential casings and removing all bearings off my car. All I'm doing is waiting for my new bearings from Boca but they have delayed the shipment for some problem they had. The previous bearing I used I had purchased off of eBay for about $25 but I think they are as good as stock ones.

I recently got my OS 18tz ported so I'm hoping I will be running faster speeds and time at the 132ft.

The fastest speed I've been clocked with an old tz I had was 55 mph with 23/45 gearing. My gearing now is 23/41, I didn't want to use 37 spur cus that would be mainly for high speed runs and I'm trying to get a good run in the 132 ft track. 37 will slow me down on the 132.

I'm on the hunt for more power and speed, my sons HPI sprint 2 flux got better timing and speed than my rs4. The flux ran 2.3 at 58mph wile I ran 2.4 at 55mph

In a few weeks we've got the autorama and we will be racing indoors

I purchased a small hand drill and hex bits which makes it alot easier and faster. The cleaning took longer.
