I need advise from the Cobra experts here. What spares should I get for one, what parts usually break?

you will need transmission parts mainly. Spares are cheap and are strong but the transmission is the main issue.

did you want pics of the modified standard belcranks or my b3 ones. I would just move the standard ones back to give proper ackermann.

I'd like a pic of the STD mod please not the B3 one.. I am having a mare with the steering on mine. If I tighten it up it's binding, if I loosen it then it unscrews itself!

Default steering

yep your quite right. Ill post pic but i dont think it will help you. I used threadloc on the screws and a tamiya axel shim under the steering belcrank. That way you can tighten right up without binding. I also have been told by certain people that they used too superglue the servosaver solid without spring and just use a servosaver on the servo itself.

On the subject of wheels,do the Losi/RC10 front wheels have bearings in them so that they'll suit the Mardave front stubs?
(anyone one got/get their hands on a B4/XXX-CR to check this out??)

If they use 5mm o.d axles instead of Mardave's 4mm,it'll be easy enough to get the Cobra uprights to take 5mm axles.

If the Losi/RC10 fronts are set up to take bearings in the wheels then that should be a possible mod to fit 'em on the front of a Cobra.

Is it reckoned that Losi/RC10 rear wheels will fit straight onto the Cobra
outdrives or have they got to be changed to Losi/RC10 or Tamiya types?

I'm eyeing up some re-tweaking work on my Cobra/Meteor hybrid(Cobeor?)
and like the look of those JC Racing 5 spokers on DerbyDan's Lobra.

Unfortunately,they don't make 'em anymore and CML have none in stock either

Looks like these wheels are 2.2", are the standard cobra ones 2" or 2.2"?

Good news on the JC racing wheels... they are what I used Bitd on my Cobra.

The original white dished wheels are 2.2"... the Meteor wheels were 2"

P.S; with regard to the servo saver - I used to run a tie wrap beneath the top cap to compress the saver spring, it just tightened it up, enough to still give you the servo saver action

That's right Dan,Cobras are 2.2,Meteors are 2.0.

Cobra and Meteor rears are interchangeable,to fit Cobra fronts on a Meteor
and vice versa is easy,you just have to use each car's front axles with it's wheels.

Either axle is a direct fit into either axle block/steering arm,you don't even have to change the C uprights.

Got me some nice fruity white 5 spokes on order Dan,though I've got RC10B2 ones coming.
I've modded my Cobeor to get the fronts on it.

i seem too remember gearing the car quite high but its been a while since i ran the mardave gearbox. If you have a earlier car, the diff will stand up to a 13 turn better aswell.
