I'm not complaining, that car looks all the better with race dust.

With regards to that ball linkage, I'm still on the lookout for a bulk-order solution, so when I do find something good I'll be sure to have it in stock at this Shop here ASAP.

WTF Please!!! i think the widw track front will compliment this chassis very nicely... no scrub...

IMO it would bwe sweet if you could make it that running a 0 offset will give you a plus 2 front...

He made a few +2.5 sets, but you aren't getting mine

They work great, I think it would be a great option set for the car.

That looks sick Dave. How does it drive compared to the standard front end?

Dave!

Ferchrissakes, you can't just drop a bomb like that and provide no pics of the attachment points! Whuttya thinking? I notice you had to move the servo horn to the rear to get it to work. Can you take some closeups? Have been wanting that for your ball linkage as well, but it must be too 'TOP SECRET' to photograph up close...

Also, on the purple servo mounts. I've gone to bphobbies.com and searched for mfr bluebird with keyword 'mount', 0 hits, 'bracket' 0 hits, 'servo' 112 hits. I can only infer that these came with some bluebird servo you ordered that you have abandoned in favor of the S3114?

Do you remember what it was?

C'mon man! Share!

RE attachment points, what you see is what you get -- Dave just bolted the front end onto a pair of disk damper posts, using the holes in the chassis for the anti-roll bar.

The reversed servo config Dave was running is certainly not going to play well with the double A-arm suspension -- the front is too low to use a long enough servo horn, so he had to turn it back around.

MRCG development is kind of an open secret, lol, I'm sure Dave will have some better pics soon.

is the cross brace resting on the servo? if not I'd put something in between to take up the play, just mounting off the front posts is going to put a lot of leverage on the rest of it.

I agree-- in fact I mentioned before that at some point I will need to design and make an adapter plate that bolts the top cross brace to the chassis. Well, nothing says you can't run it just as is, I hope it performs well.

Got to run the car a bit yesterday, only change I made was yellow PN springs and thats it. THe car wasnt that much different as far as handling. IF anything it was smoother through the chicanes and abrupt steering inputs. If you sawed on the wheel it wouldnt jack (pitch) going in. My only complaint is that the horsepower was way down on the ASF compared to the bigger 18th scale electronics.

IANC: The servo mounts came with this servo. http://www.bphobbies.com/view.asp?id=V443293&pid=NBB200

Like I said though give them a call and speak with JIM and tell him that I sent you. He will find something for you. These also work if you want to drill them out yourself: http://www.bphobbies.com/view.asp?id...78&pid=W236515

After the PN race I will disassemble the ft end and show all the parts if youd like. I kinda thought the pics were self explanatory.

Hi Dave,

What 1/18th ESC were(are) you using before you switcheed over to the Kyosho ASF board? If you already posted this info I apologize. I am curious, as there are 3 ESCs that I am debating over purchasing - Novak's SPY, Tekin's B1R, and the XRAY/M18 micro speed control (I know there's a 180-motor-type model and also a 300-motor-type model, I'm not sure which would be best suited for our 130-class motors). I also own a TGR Spinner Ver. 1, but that's for another project. What would be your order of preference for these ESCs Davey?

Thanks for all your photos & info!

I ran the tekin b1r due to its size and power. This esc can even handle 4 cells on a 540 type motor. The esc is a Spektrum sr3100, the pics show otherwise but the Spektrum is what I use. There is a new super micro spektrum reciever now too. Talk to you soon!
