I see you guys are posting the T2's. They look similar however have open ball sockets which I like and seem to screw in a little further.

Good tips, I usually drill a small hole in all those type ball ends before installing so that I can fit a hex driver through and remove/install the ball ends without popping the cups on and off.

Axial is sending me a new battery, charger, and servo.

I have a new spektrum servo to put in for when the existing one fails. Hopefully the new battery works better than the one it came with. Eventually i will be ordering some 2s lipos, but i'll probably wait until i replace the esc and motor anyway.

FYI those were worked like garbage when i tried em on my dromida, bent in a couple runs of indoor flat carpet racing and cracked in half when bent back. If your going to bother i would suggest going with the titanium ones or figuring out a different way.

I've got some 3.5mm stainless rod and ordered a set of right and left handed m3 dies from China. It won't have the handy square for a little wrench but I'll be able to adjust them with a small set of pliers. The dies were a little over a dollar each and the rod I scored from work. I don't know the tinsel, but it's very stiff in short pieces. Stiff enough you need 2 vise grips to bend anything less than 6-8" long.

Be careful about the appearance of offering products for sale without being a vendor.

Huzzah mine worked out of the box. Was a freaking blast. Also noticed it had dirt in the top of the screws right out of the box. I suppose they are testing them before they are sending them out now. My daughter and I had a blast with it. Hope it holds up.

Thanks for the info. I am generally light on my rigs, but that's good to know. The titanium set are really not that expensive too.

hello and thanks in advance. I replaced my Yeti Jr. trashed factory servo with Hitech HS-65MG. All is well but.......steering is reversed using my factory radio. I attempted radio adjustments per the manual now everything is reversed including Forward & Reverse direction...Hopefully I've overlooked something simple?

Also, would someone point me to the supplier of what appears to be a flexible connector between the servo & steering linkage shown in a couple of pictures above.

Thanks again !

Steering linkage can be made from threaded rod (2mm, 2-56, or possibly 3mm) and ball cups from a losi mini (part losb1049) or team associated rc18 (part 21189) or something similar. Redcat sumo micro crawler rod ends fit too. The rod can be bent for clearance which may be necessary with a larger servo. The exposed threaded rod looks flexible.
You can use a small turnbuckle from those vehicles as well.
I didn't use the stock electronics so I can't help much there, is there a separate switch for reversing throttle and steering?

Thanks for pointing me in the right direction for the linkage. I couldn't locate a switch for the electronics, so I'll retrace my steps on that regard. Just hoping I didn't overlook something simple.
I'm having a 'duh' moment at the moment

So, I went through the reversing throttle & steering steps, I managed to get things acceptable. On my first attempts I didn't notice subtle movement.
Thanks for your patience
