I thought it took lots of skill to surgically sever two of the sensor wires on my VTA car in the last EOS race. If I don't see you and your son Sunday, have a Merry Christmas and I hope you get everything on your list.

What was the most gain you made in your electric motors by using the analyzer? I know you can find the real timing, but were you able to gain anything that made a difference on the track?

You will have to test for yourself and just about every brand has a good servo for your needs.


Also Watch out for Gear slop in most of the cheaper Servos. I have found the Solar ones that are metal Geared are perfect.
Hmmm this servo only weighs 2.5g more than my Savox and is 1/4 the price. How reliable is it, anyone use it?

I use those in my 2wd off-road vehicles, and planning on using one in my up coming TC purchase. I also use the D771 in my 4wd SCT and my e-Buggy. I haven't had a single failure...and I run them at 7.4v.

Dirla is a "4P" master... Punt,Punch,Peel,Pass...usually in that order..lol and usually at a spot in the track where the camera is blocked lol

Dirla did go 11.7 on the Southern Nats layout with the Tekin Spec in the car though...so lets see what the diamond can do.
