So I saw 2.slow's C3 run last night... HOLY SHIT that fawker can turn tight!
I think maybe it's all the toe in he has?

It's turn radius is at least HALF of my rigs.

john you should look into your steering geometry. mechanically i dont think there is anything different with your setup than mine or adams, maybe your servo horn is just not long enough to swing to full lock.

I think you're right... what horn did you end up going with?
I switched to that short horn that came with the Hitec.

I'd like to check out someone's wraith steering set up Sunday mine seems like its not quite right.

Kind of feel like a trader buying this but it was only 30$

carnage trail at the cliffs... next time we go out there we need to get further back into the park where the good stuff is.

edit - might not be as cool for a scale rig as it is 1:1, but whatevs... there is much cooler stuff back in the park.
