So what servo is everyone going to be putting in there 2.0? I'm can't decide between the Savox 1256 or the 1258. I'm leaning towards the 1258. I don't think I need the fast speed but it will be there if I want it.

Also, I know this was talked about around here somewhere, but how about an external BEC or just a novak glich buster. I'm using the speckrem 3100 DSM2. I like the CC programmable BEC but I don't have the castle link and I'm not buying it just for that. So whats everyone using.....Ryan, can you help?

I'm using a 3520 and currently running the 1258 and with a cap. I'm going to try out my JRZ9100S as I don't think it'll need a cap.

How are you guys fastening the RX8 to the chassis? I've always screwed them down in the past

Based on his asshattery (and insults to pretty much anyone who replied to him) on rcshortcourse as well, I am pretty sure that is all he is out to do. Anxiously awaiting (not really) his next juvenile insult followed by an attempt to act intelligent...yawn.

I got the truck pretty much wrapped up today. Still need to get it wired and tweak the suspension. I still hate the diff screws.

Otherwise the truck went together great!

Very nice looking ride fulbore! Still waiting for my local shop to get mine in. Did you go with stock pistons or 22s? Is anybody using emulsion style shocks on this ride?

I went with stock pistons only due to the fact that the LHS didn't have any of the 22 pistons in stock. I did order a variety of pistons as well as springs. I plan on taking it out later today (wed) and see how it handles. If it is half as good as my old SCTE was out of the box, it will be a good day! Will have to get the body painted up for it but I have an other bodies to run lol

I shorten the servo wires on things by clipping them to length and crimping on a new connector. If I then need to use that same thing on a different vehicle and it's too short, I either solder on a new wire if it's easy, or shorten it most of the way, and add a custom-length extender.

As for the curly wires, I see those but I thought they just came that way on some things. If people are doing it themselves, i'm curious to know how they do it as well. I just assumed some things had springy wires like old telephone handset cords.

You can wrap the servo wire around pretty much anything. Make sure its relatively tight and it will hold its shape. There's an entire thread here on showing off your wiring with all sorts of great ideas for cleaning up your wiring.
