Anybody tried Tamiya brand rubber tyres combination? Which compound suited best for carpet surface?
As this is for TCS, only Tamiya rubbers are allowed.
Thanks.

Out of the box, the Tamiya tires will get sticky and pick up all the carpet fuzz and junk, leaving you with no traction. I understand this is supposed to be helped by running the tires through a few heat cycles, as in a few asphalt runs. I do know that i have run asphalt used tires that did not pick up fuzz the last time I was at the carpet track. I do not know if this will be the same for everyone.

Default servo saver

what would be a better servo saver for the f104.

i'm currently running the one with the kit, and for the past 8 months not had a single problem, but this week, nothing but trouble, the slightest 'hit' will racing will stop any steering.

i'm currently running a futaba servo (S3003 model), but have recently gone to a spektrum dx2s and that came with S100 servo that I plan to install, so what type of servo saver should work.

any information would be appreciated.

Kimbrough makes the best servo savers. I would suggest getting the #144 servo saver for your futaba servo.

Kimbrough #144 isn't a servo saver. For Futaba it's (small) #114 or large (gas )#124

If you plan on using a Spektrum servo the Futaba one won't fit. Wrong spline count (24). Spektrum is either a 23 (JR) or 25 spline. It's best to count it on your particular servo.

My car was bouncing too but track is carpet. I guess one of the reasons why is track surface is bumpy.
