I been running these since they came out last year. No problems to date and they are all metal gears. No plastic first gear to break like on some other brands.

That is the same speed as the Orion low profile servo
Fits perfectly into the Photon

Yes, on the servos, both are Savox. For the servo saver:

or TOP's which is a Kimbrough:

Also the TOP spur gears are Kimbrough.

There is a few Savox high voltage servos. I run them in my 1/8 nitro buggy.

Talking THIS CAR IS EXCELLENT

I had a very productive set-up day today.

The car was very stable, and oddly, for me, I actually laid down the rear shocks to make the car rotate in sweepers more.

I am just thinking about putting a bit of kick up at the front, both to make the front tuck in under braking a bit more, and to add a little caster in the process.

Anyway I love this car.
