interesting servo info for you all....

Hi!

In the process of wiring a scratch build FWD I somehow got something wrong in the servo and sent the servo into conniptions.

By doing that I found out two things:

1. the Chinese plastic is even more fragile than normal and you can strip servo gears easily.

2. The servo gear that connects to the pot gear/servo arm is exactly the same cut/pitch as the 4th gear from the MR03. That means you can replace the unit with the metal aftermarket gear from the various companies that produce it.

what electronics did you use? I'm hoping to transplant the EVO board into a FWD.

I'm attempting to fit a VE board into the FWD chassis. Its super tricky as the chassis is molded to fit a brushed board. I'm creating a photo pictorial on how to make it fit....

I imagine that if an EVO board is the size of a brushed board then itd be a bit more simple to modify an RX plug in spot.

Looks like a good idea but i may have positioned my board a bit different to avoid the Atomic rear suspension assembly (latest gen that is similar to the Kyosho). I plan on some shrink to cover the exposed areas.

The SAS sport rear end... I think the best value awd/fwd on the market.

I don't have a FWD chassis, so can't really do much to help with the dimensions...

Its not so much dimension (looks like itll fit great) but in my decision making process i decided to center the board since it wouldve bumped the SAS top arm mount hanging out the back.

Ill be starting a separate thread soon as im doing a bunch of mods to make the VE F-AWD run flawless.
