    I know this is off topic but griff im working on an 18mt too i got the 52kv brushless 60amp esc rpm parts im on 60/14 gearing gpm shocks did the dogbone covers and it works well, but i cant keep it straight!
    I did the 65mg servo with the correct servosaver w/ spring mod metal steering block.... and have switched back and forth between the stock turnbuckels and steel, but i still cant seem to get it to hold straight.... is there some trick im missing, or is it because its an 1/18 that makes it not as stable as far as turning is concerened...

    Thats a neat idea, but doesn't that only help with the dogbones flying out? Not sure how it helps from bending/breaking

    When the rear suspension are fully compress the dogbone starts to stress the subaxle. My 3 failure was them splitting ing half...this prevents them from "opening" i have zero probl3ms since th3 mod..even on 6s

    Sorry for the late reply give me a chance this weekend and I will pull mine down and take some photos. Mine is probably not as fast as yours I am running a reedy brushed motor in mine.
