It would be fun to run with you at Axialfest Andy! Imagine you, me, Griz, Chino and Devlin all cruising 6 year old rigs through the woods!??! That would be AWESOME!

BTW, looks great with those axles and tires!

Of course, it wouldn't be complete without you. We need to get your daddy Badger an invite as well.

I need to decide if I'm running 6.0 or 7.4v though cause now I need to choose a servo, must have forgot I had one.

What I found with Guido and Dutch was that the switch to Wraith style knuckles puts more load on the servo; even with the smaller tires and Dutch's modest 9.5 lb weight. The 200 in/oz Hitecs, that worked good with AX knuckles, are not really strong enough. I would go with whatever servo/voltage gives you the most torque.

Glad I'm not the only one who noticed this. I had to switch to a 7980 on my C3 truck when I swapped to 8* knuckles. I have a few of the 7954SH servos, only two left working. I stripped the motor gear on two of them and burnt one up. Titanium gear servo with more power gets my vote.

These two are the same specs at 6v (330oz) but one is titanium geared, the steel gear one can go up to 7.4 and it jumps over 400..

I could always throw the titanium one in the yeti and put the original servo back in... That's a 7950 which I think is over 400 at 6v and almost 500 at 7.

I wouldn't go less than a 7950 on 7 volts, although my favorite servo is the 7980. I bought one for the '34D and it's still going. Been in the '34, Trooper and now the EB. It's a little bit bigger every way though, not sure it will fit in the Hack.

I'm re doing everything, but the 7950 was in it before with 2.2s, hopefully it is good with the smaller 1.9s

I'll just throw one of these in the yeti and take hat servo back. A 7980 looks awesome for a 2.2 rig though

So, I had a "what if" moment today. Turns out Yeti rear links are just a touch shorter than what I had on the rear previously (it needed to come in a bit anyway)

Some SSD or vanquish links would look pretty awesome, even though the shock holes wouldn't be useable. And that could be kinda lame looking...

I "could" always bust out the mill, but that seems like a long and tedious process on a manual mill...

Use those shock holes in the trailing arms for a Wraith sway bar. With the leverage you might not even need to soften up the bar. Looks sweet as hell.
