Servo arms - Aluminum arm BEST but plastic type is fine.
NOTE : When running belt drive be sure to check motor direction. Depending on which side you choose to have it on ( Normal direction is having belt on left side when looking at bike from rear) If you need to Reverse the motor direction that can be done by esc setting or radio, check radio and esc manual before doing operating.Most motors is recommend to set timing to "0" if running in reverse as when reversing direction turns + timing into - visa ,versa

Note: This is a A to B Drag bike for smooth clean surface roads of either prepped or non prep drag tracks or street. You must slow way down to turn around.

When pressing in rear axle bearings onto carbon fiber rails on assembly dont force it tap in evenly.Most times it will snap in place.
