Junk. I broke two of the metal geared servos in this car. The gears do not get stripped, but they get pulled out of their plastic seating making the servo unusable.

I haven't had a great experience with any of the Turnigy products except batteries and motors. My car started with everything Turnigy (radio, esc, servo, battery, motor) because of the affordable price, but have since replaced everything with name brand components except the batteries. I noticed an immediate difference once I got rid of the Turnigy. I even replaced the electronics in my eight year old son's car. I replaced the radio with an entry level Airtronics radio and I noticed he was driving much smoother almost immediately.

Wow, I guess ya get what you pay for here. I agree with your thoughts on the batteries though, we have about ten of them and they've all held up great. Great punch too.

I would say that its a bad idea. You need that clutch to slip a little to help give you traction. If the track is a lil loose or your tires arent perfect that thing would probably be a handful to drive. I run a 7.5 in mod so maybe im not the perfect person to answer but I would say stick to a slipper.

Which one the B5? I ran it before the Yokomo. Only ran the Yokomo as a favor for a friend. B5 IMO isn't as quality as the yokomo but what good is quality if you're waiting on parts? Most of my friends run a B5 so setup sharing is better. I was all alone with the Yok yet I put it on the map in our area. The only thing I hate that I have to do again is free up these ballcups.....lol

Yeah, I despise these ball cups...except that the fix for it is free. Just seems like they should fit a bit better out of the box. On the plus side, they don't pop off!

Nope. I feel like tower sends out their notices late, like 1am, so I'm hoping.

The kits are still out in the harbor waiting to be unloaded. The backup to unload the boats is months behind. I was told by an employee another two weeks was probable.
