Soze: 45 degrees might be reachable. The first contact is a support on the backside of knuckle. I wonder if the metal knuckles have the same support. I also wonder if this can be sanded off. Might just have to try it.
Yeah the few threads I read in the sticky ground/filed away some contact points on the knuckle and the c-hub.

Not a fan of imgur, it's mainly meant to be it's own social media like platform and host images for Reddit. I plan to just stick with Flickr until I maybe hit the 1k image cap one day.

Ok. Side thought. I saw the SSD trail king sale and clicked on the assembly manual from RPP. Instead of being stacked like the R1, the gears of the transmission are stretched out (impressively scale). I wonder how close the transmission internals are to the size (shaft/gear diameter) to the R1. My plastic gear fears might be gone. Unless, of course, the SSD gears are plastic. Hopefully someone that is following this will let me know.

I don't think they're plastic. I haven't opened mine yet though.

Well, soze, when you do, please post some measurements of gear and shaft diameters.

I firmly believe that making RCs work is making them work for you. When I refigure out the post photos thing you'll see my Dig servo horn is the GPM version of the TRX4 shift/lock servo horns. The spring makes up for the misalignment time. I did have to put some thread lock on the outside of the Dig output bearing to try to hold it in place. A little screw like the Axial 1 piece rear, that holds the bearing in, would be great. I did use the Junfac dig unit.

Flickr is a bit round-about to post photos but figured it out. Should be all clean and pretty now.

Ah I can see again, I was tired of standing 25 feet away from the monitor.
