Really good. Only a couple of niggles but the car went together well. Quality is top notch.

Is your Savox servo causing the servo horn to run on the body?
Reading reports that savox servos cause the horn to rub on the shell.

It will rub on the body. With a bit of fitting it should lessen it. Iím having the Proline Axis shell sprayed up at the moment so Iíll see how that fits. Iíve got my xb4 penguin shell to use until I get it and it doesnít rub on that, but that is quite deep on the sides

I will be getting a different servo for it but the one I want is out of stock at the moment.

Iíve had to space the ball stud on the horn for now as well because of the size of the servo.

I say Iím getting another servo, but if the savox works ok with the axis shell I wonít be spending money.

Iíve been looking at the Highest servos.

This is the servo horn that is supposed to solve the savox servo problem. Iíve ordered one to try.

Iíve put the Hudy servo horn on and it clears the shell fine.

First run with the car went reasonable, I broke it after about 5 laps🥴
When I did get some laps in the car felt good, very responsive and lots of steering.
I would suggest getting the bigger roll bars if you get one, the ones in the kit are too thin. Youíll need the 1.6/1.8/2.0mm.

Second run with it this Friday.

Ran the 22x4 yesterday at BMR in Nottingham. Track had dried out after a couple of packs so hereís my setup. Changes will be made for the next time to try something different. I ran with a mate who has an xb4 20. Seems more responsive as Iíve said previous, but you can see the car reacting better than his. Very smooth at jumps and feels a lot calmer as well. First impressions are good.
I felt it was better balanced with the lcg in for me.
I have to say 4wd is not my preferred class. Iím much more at ease with 2wd

If your only running on carpet you already have the best car for that surface. The L1
