I use a #20 and have never needed to go bigger than that.
I wouldn't recommend going bigger than a #20 unless you want to introduce slop a whole lot faster...

The only thing I see for spectrum is that you can run 7.4 vs the xp only runs 6. I will be running a 4s pack.

Thanks,

Just wanted to see if anyone could offer some advice.

Any particular reason you want to avoid running a Savox servo cause you run Spektrum? I run both Savox servos with Spektrum and don't have any issues.

The #18 drill bit makes it nice and free, with only a VERY SLIGHT amount of play.

Hope this helps.
I have the perfect solution, go to Lowes and find the chainsaw sharpening tool, looks like a long thin round file. It comes in a 2 pack. The smaller file is 4.2mm. Put the droop screw in the a arms, Chuck the file into a drill and ream out the a arms from both sides. It works perfectly, the hinge pin will be able to fall right through the a arms with very minimal slop..... Kcobra showed me this and I have used it. And best if all, the tool costs around 5$...

Just heard locally that the two don't mix well together and that you need an external cap to help regulate the power. I have an xp 1015 now just wondering if that would work? Im new to 8th scale, just a 2wd buggy guy.

I run a Savox 1256 in my 8E 2.0 and 3.0 buggies and a Savox 1267 in my 8T 2.0 truggy without a external cap and have zero issues.

I would steer away from the XP, they have a plastic gear that is common to break in 1/8th scale applications. I run Spectrum with a Futaba servo. Matched with a Tekin RX8 Gen2 set on the 7.4 voltage option. Works great.

Never had this happen to me before.. Snapped a camber link end while I was making an on power left turn. Maybe it had a small stress crack in it. They were fresh too, this was the 3rd race on the whole set.

Note to self: Check rod ends more often

Hi,

Can you tell me what's about the Hudy reamer tool for the Losi arms ?
Did somebody try it ?
Is the 4mm one right, or we absolutely need ~4,2mm drill/tool/tap ?
Thanks,
Bye !

FWIW most servo's have that dreaded "plastic" gear.

I have only driven this car 5 Trackdays long on an astroturf track, so Stones couldnt have scratched them up.
Even the thread is damaged a bit
Does someone have the Same Problems?

Usually this happens when springs run the shock body. It can also happen in crashes where the springs hit the body.

Another question regarding servos. I ran the xp1015 and it feels good but I think it needs a little more. What is a good amount of torque and speed that I should be looking for? Do you need more torque over speed? I was also looking at the spectrum 6090 or the futuba 9352 and was wondering which would be better for the buggy?
