TLR’s Gen III radio tray (part #4401) elevates the high performance 8IGHT 2.0 buggy and 2.0T truggy vehicles to new levels. Designed to move weight forward on the chassis and increase throttle servo life and durability, the Gen III tray is a simple, low-cost performance upgrade. I spent an afternoon with TRL’s Adam Drake assembling one of the new trays, and here are Adam’s assembly pro tips. For even more information, drop by RCCarAction.com for tons of video with Adam discussing the Gen III tray and the tips described here.

STEP 3 – What’s The Clearance, Clarence?
The Gen III tray offers increased performance because it mounts the servos and radio components low and centered on the chassis. Drake suggests paying close attention to steering servo screws particularly the steering servo screws closest to the front center driveshaft. If the screws punch through the servo mount even slightly, the screw will bind against the shaft. If necessary, use a shorter screw or use a rotary tool to grind down this screw to prevent it rubbing on the driveshaft.
