I’m a new CC02 owner, built mine for slow and low. The plan is to keep it as stock and affordable as possible. I started out with ball bearings, stock electronics and locked diffs. I found that mounting the steering servo vertically was an improvement over horizontally. My plan to upgrade the drive shafts and steering components with metal parts when the plastic ones wear out. 
 

in the meantime I’m enjoying driving it and learning it’s abilities and limitations.

so how do you change the steering servo location? 

I believe the manual gives you the option of mounting the steering servo horizontally or vertically.

yes. For some reason my inclination was to mount it horizontally and found the steering to be horrible in that configuration. Setting it vertically after building it requires some tear down.

I have a cc02. And i did rims and tires, and aluminum links and mounts from GPM . Water proof servo. Tamiya bearing kit is essential, Everything else is stock.
