Just waiting on the servo... Ordered the Futaba S3113.

Installed are the Associted XPS decased and a Futaba AM reciever. Its pretty large but I fit everything in pretty good.

Thanks for the pics; I'm building mine as we speak and your pics are helpful.

Much better results this time!

Looks nice, Cody. Do you have enough clearance for the disk damper? The ESC looks dangerously close.

Yessir...

Put the esc as close as I could without the disk damper hitting..

Very nice kit, fit and finish is next to none!

Brian,

If you're reading this, would it be helpful for Cody to put shims under his side rails where they attach to the main chassis for imroved 'rear steer'?

Just curious; the docs make it seem like it would be a good thing to do, even on a 1.0.

And Cody,

Can you post some closer pics of your servo and ball linkage installation? Part #'s? Thanks,

ianc

Yes, the rear steer spacers are good on both 1.0 and 1.1 cars for the vast majority of track layouts. On the original MRCG, though, you have to watch out that the center spring mount is long enough to compensate for raising the flex plates. Otherwise you can run into a low ride height problem in the middle of the chassis.


I took the pictures for converting the Futaba S3114 for ASF board usage; they'll be up in a bit. ;)

Excellent! I've got a brand new AWD ASF board and S3114 sitting on my bench at home just waiting! Thanks,

Missed this post...

The double A-arm set should fit the MRCG and MRCG1.1 with a bit of work. The front mounting holes on that front end fit on the MRCG front end just like mounting an anti-roll bar, but for the top mounting holes you need to fabricate an adapter plate and standoffs. I need to get one of these for my car so I can design and produce a batch of these adapter plates. I do not know, however, if there's enough space for the servo after this adapter plate is mounted up.
