Default spectrum 6040 or Savox 1258

I have both servos. Which should I install in my new 410.3? All comments most helpful!

They are pretty much identical spec-wise. My other son ran a 6040 in his B5M. It was pretty decent for the buggy. I've had 1258's in pretty much all my rides for a long time now. The 1258 is a noisy buggar but it seems to perform well. I've also heard the Savox servos are power hungry so if you have a wimpy BEC in your ESC (Castle) that might create a problem.

Does anybody else have play in the steering bellcrank? It seems to be coming from the part opposite the servo saver, the part on the top of this picture: EDIT, can't post pictures yet!

Check the original 410 thread. You may have a bad saver assembly.

What were you geared at? 2400kv either needs a lot of gear on 3s or very little on 4s.
Having said that, the 3800 is plenty powerful for this truck, but like the 2400, it's kinda in between the ideal kv spots of 2s and 3s. So either run a big pinion on 2s or a small one on 3s.

I like using 3s. The 2400 geared 23/44 just isn't fun yet lol. I might try 3800 on 3s and see what happens

Hobbywing has a 3400kv 4 pole motor that will work with 3s.

If anyone is looking for a tough body... The JConcepts Nissan Titan is a really good body. Reinforce the front clip with dry wall tape & shoe goo, and the rear corners. I have lots of hard crashes on mine, endos, cartwheels... You name it. It's holding up great.

My last body was the JConcepts Manta. It broke in 7 places in my first 2 races. It was BAD. JConcepts sent me this Titan for free, and its night & day stronger than the Manta. The bodies with more detail, more creases, more lines seem to be weaker than the more simplistic body designs. This is simply my opinion, but I do believe the added creases create weak points.

Can you elaborate on the performance of the 3400 on 3s vs 4000 on 2s? What is the optimal pinion size on 3s?

Tekno told me it would change the geometry.

It will fit, but will throw off the geometry of the truck, and you will need to order Truggy shocks to get the droop back in the rear.

Id be interested to see how the 4x1.8 pistons will make the truck handle.
