Well fiished the trays today on the rally ,these are specials for use with the alloy carrier and alloy bearing holders ,basically a v4 set
in red with an EVO 3 brake plate to carrier hole position .As usual spot on fitting and superb quality, the only change I made was using
Elcon HT torx screws .  If you have a rally with std carrier and enclosed centre diff ,there is a set to fit that ,straight fit .

Matt I junked the plastic enclosed centre diff holder ,the alloy holders are stronger ,more adjustable ,and offer a heat sink for Hot
bearings ,some times the old systems are best ,I am sure the plastic one is just a commercial thing ,cheaper to produce and faster to
fit in assembly  ;) ;)

Dave ,the only trays I have seen are for the bigger servos ,do you run a smaller throttle/brake servo ?? or all three ,be worth doing
to Improve the steering  ;) and just use one platic size reducer or fabricate one ,or even PM jofer himself  ;) ;) :) :)

Use standard size servo's all round. Bigger isnt always better  ;)

And using the plastic adapptors means i may as well keep the plastic tray.

The only thing i thought is to make some size reducers out of carbon but would rather have the alloy tray
with standard size servo holes.

Cheers you too  :)  one more part needed a tray for the top of the tank to replace the plastic one and make a solid link
from the engine bolt to the rear tower,perhaps Pink  :lol: :lol: :lol:

What is status on this part? Is is out in the shops by now?

Last time I spoke to Jofer ,he said it would need to be made  in 3 parts to keep the cost down ,perhaps an updated Ultimate tank
supports system would be the answer ,but unless he has wholesale demand ,it won't happen . ;)

The demand is low and the unit cost will be high because no one would be willing to make a minimum of 1000 at a time.

Ayaz
good news you received your parts as quickly, honestly goes luck with USPS
sometimes it takes 1 week, sometimes two
other countries such as Russia apparently takes more, supposedly USPS site says the same time, but ...
I'm glad that you get this all right
thank you
