There haven't been any posts about an AZ Shootout on here!

This car is fully functional right now, just with a 7950.

You're really going to like it vs that servo...

I'm also really curious about the A700...
I was looking on ebay for about 160$!
Are those the ones you guys are talking as possible copies?
New wheels look great by the way!

Yes, that is the possibility.

I’ll tell you what, not sure if the mold release agent changed
or if it just reacts to this compound different, but that shit is no joke.
Hit them with a heat gun and the mold release goes away

I use BSI glue, but DLux narrowed these when I ordered them from him.

Should have just had a 3D printer give birth to a new servo bracket...
But as usual I took the hard road...

Looks good, I'd much rather have that aluminum Servo bracket over a 3D printed one anyday

I see some of the new style rigs 80%ish of them being 3D printed and wonder how they don't manage to break the rig @ every comp.

Yeah agreed, it's really cool technology, and great for some parts but not for others...

If I would be able to have the machines to machine Ti and aluminum I would do it.
But i don't have the space and also the money for them so the 3d printer will have to do it.

Even a home 3d printer can do reliable things like a gearbox on a shafty.
If you go with shapeways material even better.

But you can't beat machining metals, it has that bling factor!

You say that, and yet Del Monte has my U4 car with printed axles and he hasn't been able to break them yet. There's a big difference with the right printer and material, comparable to injection molded plastic IMO

Funny you ask, as I was going to post an update last night that it has taken me over a month to swap out a servo...
Been busy! Hope to wrap it up soon.

For those wondering the size difference in the servos,
they are pretty close, but the Futaba is a little more portly.

This particular dimension is a problem for the SDS servo mount.
