But all these reviews seem to be quite "old" - so no new news here? Using a DX4R and SR2000 and/or SR410 RX. Will brownouts still be an issue?

Or should I look for another servo? Which? As I understand the Spektrum S6040 is a rebranded 1258TG, so brownouts here too?

And please dont tell me to swtich to airtronics I am not a competitive driver and except the radio itself, the RX prices are just crazy and not manageable for me!
I'm using a Savox 1258, Spektrum receiver and a Hobbywing Justock XR10 ESC. I haven't had a single brownout in the 3 months I've been using this set-up.

Does the 91428 Motor Plate work, too?

Another Question: I run a used Airtronics Servo and it gets about 40C/110F after a complete run of 15mins. Is that normal?

I am thinking of swtiching the servo. Could go for a Thundertiger DS1015 (has different names, but all 1015 should be the same!). I run it in my SC5M and no complains. Or I am thinking of the spektrum 6040 - but I have never used one. You guys are all over the servo and say its the best bang for the buck. Here in germany both cost the same!

Any suggestions?
have you checked to make sure your steering rack is free. that woud make the servo run hot. disconnect the rack from the servo and check that it moves freely from side to side. mine moves just from tilting the car so its very free

I've been running the xp ds1015 and it's great, bought used over a year ago.

No one has mentioned that the 4 gear uses a different top shaft and bearings!

Anyone have any insight to my gear diff quandary awhile back?

First generation 4 gears used a different top shaft and bearings. The parts you would buy today would use the exact same internals as the 3 gear.

SOLD
Just bought 2 1258TG, put one into my B44.3 at first and tried as hard is a could, but no browning out. Even when holding against the servo with my finger. yay!
But will solder a small cap for the RX, just in case!

Antoher question: The 4G transmition would cost me about 40 - I could get a unbuild B5MCE for 200 (which would include the 4g). So the complete buggy would cost me about 160

Id like to suit one of my B5Ms to our outdoor loose dirt track:
4G, "heavy chassis", front spoiler, gear diff

The other one would be the carpet edition (its a fully option parts B5M FL):
3g, light chassis, kashima shocks, ball diff

Good idea?

You have the parts mixed up there:

You'd want the lite chassis(has more flex) the 4 gear and the ball diff for outdoor dirt loose dirt.

The standard chassis, 3 gear and gear diff for the carpet

does anyone else experience mip pucks drive shafts out of true for some reason? it wobbles. Trying to figure out what the reason is.

I noticed a lot of play in the hubs so could that have something to do with it?

I have pucks and don't notice any wobble or out of true axles. Seems super smooth to me. Have you taken the axles out and rolled them on a piece of glass? You will know for sure then!

Interesting. I bought this second hand and noticed it had a wobble as i got it. The buggy had very low use and after only 4 runs the thing got even worse. I tested the axles on v-blocks (or a make shift one) and the end where it attaches to the bimetal swivel is what is bent out of true.

I bring this up to see what may cause this to avoid this problem in the future.

Thanks

Default Front steering blocks play.

Do you guys have a noticable play in your B5Mlite front steering block? I observed this after a couple of batteries at the track.
