Unhappy sad morning for the Z

hey guys,

it has been a sad morning........ after tinkering with my Z and putting in some new parts, i went for a test run down my hall.... when into a turn a bit too fast and the Z started to oversteer, me trying to correct it made too much a motion and lost control of it..... the sad part besides side-swiping a wall, was that i broke my servo gear...... *sigh*..... now the question is, is alloy worth the money, or should i just stick with the derlin ones and put that moeny towards something else?.....

thanks guys,

Scoobaru

PS, i'm assuming the first gear is the gear that connects to the steering rod?

I think you should buy another 4 sets of servo gears for 20 bucks. That is how much ONE servo gear is in alloy. So just get another five or four servo gear sets. thats waht i did.

yeah that's another part of it that's driving me crazy...... i usually have a bumper on the car to prevent this, but after getting the nex parts in and all that, i didn't install the bumper back on and this was the result.... *sigh*..... guess i've learned my lesson about driving with out a bumper.....

what brand did you get?.... do u think there is a difference between the bransds for servo gears?

thanks,

Scoobaru

also, getting a alloy part will mean another part of the car will get more stress. You know, the weakest point breaks.
