Thanks to all of you who purchased my stuff. You have made it possible for me to be able to reinvest into my endeavor and make it grow into something legit. I will be expanding my parts selection and launching a website in the not too distant future as well.

The company is now called "R-Factor RC" and the website will be at:
www.r-factorrc.com when the site is finally launched.

Thank you all for your support!
Here is a pic of what the new packaging and logo will look like.

Hey guys I am new to on road and I don't wanna break the bank but I just want some advice on what kind of servo and speed control I should get for under 150 just to start out. The quicker you guys respond the better!

Are you racing (what class?) or just running out on the street?

Im also looking for another alternative to stock and RSD spool cups. +1 on Exotek with dual bellcrank. The quality and design is great, no complaints.

Just curious why don't you like the RSD spool cup? I installed one in my car yesterday it looked good. I wish I new I had bought 2, I only tear the rightside cup up anyway. The right spool cup was only lasting a heat in 17.5! I hope the RSD spool cup improves that!

For the money, the following are hard to beat:
--- Turnigy 1251TG low profile servo: Costs $27 new plus shipping. Digital, coreless, metal gear, dual ball bearing and fast. Works as well as my similar (but five times more expensive) Futaba servos.
---HobbyWing Justock ESC: Costs $52 new plus shipping. Work perfectly, are adjustable. Both ROAR and USVTA legal. Are as fast as any other ESC on the market (e.g. the Tekins I used to run). The only reason to consider "more" ESC than a Justock is if one wanted to run a very low turn Mod motor or run boost.

Just get the slipper spool or the ball diff and replace the balls with the friction pads. It's slightly heavier than the TC6.1 spool but it works best and won't kill your blades. Besides, you can leave it a tad loose to absorb those pesky impacts without breaking the universals.
I don't know why the plastic outdrive cups keep killing the blades but I am leaning towards it being a design defect.
I'm going to test some modifications to the plastic cups to see if this problem can be solved easily.

Yeah I'll prob. end up buying RSD's spool cups at $12.00 a piece I think it would be a good investment so I'm not replacing cvd's all the time. Yodog do u have any floating servo mounts I'm looking for one I seen that u made some if you have any let me know thanks. Also I think Reflex Racing's conversion seems to have more adjustability then the Exotek but is the stock worlds kit as competitive as those two kits?
