I have been reading a lot about servos. Not many people appear to be using Hitec servos.

I am thinking the one i got is not good enough. It is a Hitec 5645 with a speed of .23 and torque of 10.3. What do you guys think?

thanks,
John

I started with a servo about that speed so I know from experience what a difference it makes. Besides tires, putting in a faster servo is the best upgrade I made to my car. I didn't believe it would make that much difference until I felt it for myself.

I use the 100ss in mine and I've never had a problem. Great bang for the buck!!

Agreed, another for the 100ss! It fits really well in the buggy and the anodizing lines up with the associated blue!

So the max. Ampere is no problem? I dont want to shred my ESC and due to I have the programming card, I'd buy the GM Genius Race 120R.

(It kind of pisses me on that I have to buy a 15$ programming card when purchasing a >100$ ESC )

Yeah I wouldn't even bother with amperage, temps are the key!
Lol, how about buying Orion ESC's! Spend $150-200+ and still get to spend another $90 on a programming box!

My first servo!
http://www.servodatabase.com/servo/jr/z550
62oz and 0.17 sec speed, yep!
I upgraded to this.
http://www.servodatabase.com/servo/airtronics/94357z
125oz and 0.07 sec speed = Night and day difference!

Thanks! Thats what I wanted to hear So I dont need another ESC. I think back in summer I will buy some PC Cooler Fan (30x30x7) an Pin it onto the ESC. So even if there might be a temperature problem, it should be solved

Last question (everything's quite Offtopic ): I have 30% for min. value and 80% on max value at my breaking settings. Should it stay that way?

Default Waterfall Mod with Orings

Does anyone happen to have photos of the car with this mod done? Just wanna make sure I'm doing it right. Thanks in advance!

Built my kit this weekend with a strc alum rack and a savox 1258tg. I had to shave the savox plastic top a bit for clearance , has anyone else experienced this ? Never mind , searched again .... seems I am not alone.

The kit went together well , I am still to this day surprised at how little hand fitting a $225 mass produced Chinese kit needs . Looking forward to some laps .

Ran into the same with my build this weekend, instead of shaving the servo case, I omitted the plastic spacer between the servo and alm servo mount.
Is there any reason that would be the wrong option? The spacer doesn't appear to me like it would affect any steering geometry. Not to mention, there is 2 thickness spacers included, but I don't think the instructions mentioned which one to use.

Technically they're made in Taiwan, not China.

I did not use either plastic spacer and still had to trim the servo.

So a page or 2 back there was talk of the MIP Pucks, rotation and forward bite. I had a set of MIP Shiny Pucks laying around. which weight about the same as the kit bones/outdrives. I wanted to try a diff that was about the same weight as the kit diff, but had less theoretical bone bind. My results were that the MIP shiny do NOT feel like the kit parts. I could still feel the weight in the rear of the car, but the car rotated much better. Also, this was with my same 17.5 I always use. I liked the feel of the MIP shiny pucks better over all. The track is a little rutted, as the layout is a getting old. the extra weight in the rear seemed to plant the car more over the bumps, yet it cornered almost as good as the bi-metal pucks. I felt this was a nice compromise. But, I personally would not use the plastic pucks on a 10.5 or lower. MIP has some "Roller" pucks coming out. It will be interesting to see how they work with the Shiny pucks. Anyway, those were my observations.
