You can try using a 1201MG servo.It's only 12$.So if you don't like it you don't spend lots of money.

As far as I can see, the bell crank system alone isn't going to work. I've noticed a few issues that'll need to be figured out. Goin racin today, but maybe tomorrow I'll look into it more.

Everything fits, the only thing I had to do was get the proper bump steer..it's not to hard to do. I also use traxxas tie rods & ends..no more ends coming off, Ofna also makes a nice chassis for the TT. I believe that the "new" A arms (from the SC) will fit on the TT, they are better, part of the problems the SC guys were having with bending and breaking dog bones & axles (rear) was the over flexing of the A arms, it was also bending shock shafts. I would look into getting the beefier A arms. Most of the parts interchange from the TT & SC..

i'm not expert...just want to share what i've read. tekin recommends using rx8 on tekin 550 motors...keep the temp down.

Yes, the RX8 is the way to go with the larger 550 motors. I have tried an RS pro and two caps on it in my Hyper 10, and it thermals. If you must run the RSpro and a 550 motor, the only thing left is lowering the current limit and a cooling fan. When I tried the RSpro on Hyper 10, I didn't lower the current limit or try a fan, but I have got the RSpro working so far in my TT with a bitchen Tekin 6.5 and the TT2277 rotor, and so far its getting warmer than I like, and almost thermalled, but not yet. Current limit is at 90% and the TT only weights 4.97lbs. Warm weather might cause it to go over the edge, but I will have this truck lighter by then. The heavier the vehicle, the more the current draw, so you are welcme t try it, but yu will be happier with the RX8, its bulltet proof.
