    Front Diff problems....

    First pack I realized the servo saver was so loose/light the steering would not return to center, 1/2 hour of work to strip it down and add some shims to tighten it up.

    Looks great, I use garden hose or 3/4 rope to divide the lanes. The rope is nice because it's still flexible even when it's cold, plus both you can just run over with your fullsize car/truck if you...

    Maybe G10 or G20 might be a better option than carbon, all the aluminum chassis that I have made over the years last about a year before they need to be replaced because there bent, twisted or just...

    Whoa, settle down. Everyone is entitled to there own opinion. I like the carbon myself but I like how the SSC has the motor lowered and everything is more committed to the new chassis. I think what...

    I was just looking at KH site and they sell that bearing for $1.00 so that is as cheap as cheap can get, my standard one from Mcmaster was $7.95 and has lasted well. I would think that is why it...

    Hmmm, strange. My first big bearing was metal shields and it didn't last long but then I went with rubber shields and it's been working great for a long time. They came from Mcmaster-carr and were...

    Is that the 19x10x5mm bearing? Looks small but maybe it's just the picture. I used to replace my stock bearing weekly until I went with the big bearing and now it's been in there for 4 months and...

    Correct, carbon fiber is not brittle at that thickness. If it was .005 thick then yes but then you wouldn't use it for a chassis. That stuff will be tough as steel and will take a beating far better...

    From what I have read and seen the viper motors are very well made and perform great, they do seem to be a bit low on the KV numbers but I would expect that's because of large rotors being used.
