    I have used a servo end repair kit before. If I can't get to the circuit board easily, they work well. You are supposed to have a special tool to crimp them on. I just mash the tabs over with pliers and add a small amount of solder. Works like a charm. I started asking Hobbytown to carry them, so they usually have a small selection on hand.

    Decided to go ahead and start the swap over after finding a loose screw in the front upper link mount. I think my total weight with knuckle weights will come in around 4.1 lbs. All I need to finish is one ESC that hopefully will show up soon.

    You will have to let me know how those lower rears work. They way you bent them up look great and the skid area/lower link is much smaller in comparison to mine.

    I believe I used the Chaotic XR10 Axial knuckle straight links. I can check and see. The only problem is is need to use a long Traxxas 4mm link end. Not had good luck with them holding up in the past.

    The new ride is up and running, just in time for the new year. I smashed the two micro sidewinders, successfully this time! It took a little tuning to get it where I wanted. So far I am very impressed. It seems like it will be very stable and predictable. I also was able to shavesome extra weight with this re-build. There are two weights, depending on which tires I have on the rig.
