yes it's 8mm all the way out. Not stepped down to 5-6mm like the stock axle stubs.

you need torque to get speed. Guaranteed that the Hitec is faster.

I have a 5955TG on my Savy and it says it has a .15 sec transit time....more like .10 -.12

I also have a Hitec 5945MG which claims 180 oz/in @ .12 sec.....the 5955TG is a lot faster than this servo

threadlock and torque hold the wheel nut on, not the direction the threads are cut.

How long have 1/8 scale buggies been using the same exact style adapters with no probelms or wanting to change them? ....exactly.

unfortunately that's normal...

look at it, just like real Low-Pro wheel/tires...hit a hole in the road and the wheel bends.

In a standard T-Maxx/Savage tire that sidewall height is a mini suspension in itself.

red dot refers to the compund...Red compound if you know what that compound is in Losi's line-up.

You can run them any way, they don't seem to be too directional.

best for drifting = stiff suspension. Softer lets the car dive into the corners providing traction, stiffen it up and it can't dive causing the car to breaks loose laterally. lot of people are turning their TC3's into drifters.
