i never used a hitec servo. i am currently using a bluebird low profile high speed servo.

i think it broke when i flip the car 5 times after hitting a barrier. hehehe

ive asked this question before I i've always used Tamiya, acrylics take awhile to cure. A fully cured and hard surface can take (dont be disappointed) 2-4 weeks, depending on how many coats you apply.

They were ok, non belted, worked ok then wore out quickly.

Get others right away, B3s, Sorex, Solaris, Jaco, anything.

I don't know if they differ from country to country, but mine were Type 'A', which i find is usually good up to around 25 degrees 'C' & then the type 'B's are generally for hotter tracks (not usually UK then!!)

They are pretty good, but the type A doesn't like carpet as it grains very quickly.

Ah! I should have read the post better, the stock tyres in the FF03 'Pro' are type A's... If I misread it, please disregard.

The only problem is that B-type tires are not available anymore (they were sold with 4 tires, 4 wheels and 4 hard inserts in 1 box), B2-type tires are becomming even difficult to find.
They only provide B3-type tires, they work OK at high temperatures but mostly we can't use them cause it ain't warm ennough.
Good for me i do know where to find 2 complete sets of B-type tires
I allready ordered me some C-type carpet tires, don't know what to expect yet but that we will try out very shortly.
