itll give you better drive off the apex but may slow corner entry slightly,i cant feel the difference going in but could see that the rear was more stable on exit

I find it pushes at low speeds if traction is low to medium. On most parking lots, 1k is as low as high as you would want to go. Any higher, the car becomes unpredictable at high speed as the rear will want to rotate too hard. As traction comes up, you can go thicker and have the rear stay planted on power. I run 1k everywhere but places like Snowbirds or Nationals this year where I went up to 2k.

Why not just dremel a notch in the servo so it doesn't rub?

+1 better drive out of a corner, but slightly slower entry to mid corner (push). Usually use this on outdoor asphalt for 17.5 class.

The Futaba S9551 works well with no clearance or performance issues.

Narrowing the rear would help a lot too.

I have just switched to the RSXone10 and find it great.

I note the specs for the Response are a little better across the board, except for size.

What is it about the response that you prefer for 1/10?

It seems to center better and feel smoother. You really can not go wrong with any ko servo.

All good guys sourced some xray oils local so im all good with that.
im not to sure if I can make a adjustment sounds stupid but with standard setup I felt I had to wait for the rear to come round a bit till I could put the power on again
any suggestion?

Main thing to change is the rear springs, the kit ones are too soft. Run either 2.5 or 2.7 on the rear.

Or if you're on tarmac, run Reflex Racing silvers all round as these are awesome.
