I have tried the LP servos and I just didnt like the feel. I like the little extra weight up front of the full servo.

The first servo company (spektrum, savox, futaba, reedy, or any other quality servo makers) to make a low profile servo that has the wire that comes out the bottom of the servo case rather than the side is getting my money.

I'll have to agree. Unless traction is through the roof a full sized servo feels better.

One last question guys. I tried searching and scrolling didn't see anything.... I just picked up a b5m lite on here (brand new) with square pack battery and savox servo for 250! Anyways during the build is there anything I should immediately upgrade or change? Or watch out for during the build? I see a lot of mentioning about the 4 gear tranny. Ect... Thanks in advance -Tim

Absolutely, other wise it will tear itself up pretty quickly.

Servo wires should have the same connection as the sensor wire with options to plug to the side or bottom. Everyone is happy.

Yea removable servo wires is next gen stuff. The spektrum s6270 is the only one i have found now to have it. It's revolutionary. People can swap in diffrent sizes without soldering. Too bad the wire comes out the side though :/
