Are you guys using the brass bushings inside the rubber grommets on your servos?

I didn't, I wanted to minimize the transfer of vibration from the car to the servo.

No gromet inserts here either. 6+ gallons, no servo issues.

Clean the shock shaft (inside the shaft where the screw goes!) and the screw really well with motor spray/contact cleaner. Use loctite and let it dry.

The original o-rings aren't too bad, but they can be a bit leaky. Losi is working on new o-rings. Until then, you can get different ones from Ultimate Products or TKO Competition Development and you only need to run one of them, and one stock o-ring. They have a little more stiction than the stock ones, but nothing you're likely to notice with a six pound buggy, haha. Once you run them once or twice, it's all good.

Servo brand has nothing to do with it. I think it is vibration that is causing the failures. So I suggest using either the rubber grommets or the o-ring idea. Maybe do both.

Glad I checked my throttle servo again. I had the EPA to high. At full throttle it was right at the maximum opening. If you pulled on the linkage it wouldn't move anymore. Backed it off a few percent and now I've got just a hair shy of a mm buffer in there.

for the 3port engine I would use the Nova 083 pipe. King Headz 7075 shoes with 2 gold and 2 greeen springs. If you want more bottom end snap go all gold springs

maxx90- i run the clutch setup supermaxxrich mentioned and it is very smooth and will most likely be the best choice. as for a plug... I am in louisiana and pretty much run a os8 or mc9. for the 3 port motor i would say go with the 53 at 1st with the track being as small as you mentioned, and if it is too snappy on bottom go to the 86.

losi8ight-i just tried out the combo truthe ran at the nitro challange and it worked very well! i would say just get a couple setf of bowties and crime fighters in m2 and you will have a good tire for just about everywhere.
