I so nearly just ruined my AWD trying to solve a servo error! I connected to wrong wires by accident and my car smoked so bad once I put the batteries in! Fortunately I got them out quick enough and it works!! What a surprise! I thought it was screwed because a drive FET was blistered and my top cover was reduced to this:

See that melted part?? That happened in a split second!!

I'm so lucky to still have a working car. :D Just a word to any of you guys with AWD's...

Above the servo, black to black and red to grey! I failed to remember this when putting it back together. :rolleyes:

That's the exact problem I had Matt. I tried your solution. It worked quite well. :)

Cheers for the cover offer but I'm good thanks. I'll hang on for a 2.4 upgrade. :D

i think once the part of the chassis the main servo pin sits in gets worn a little the whole assembly moves around slightly:(
2.4 is next for me too:D
