RCEJK -
There is somthing wrong with your setup.

Are you pulling your carb at an angle? You should not be.

Is your carb linkage level?

When your carb is fully open do you have any extra throw in your linkage?
If you do not then you need to put a piece of fuel tubing behind your linkage carrier on your servo. This way if you have a full throttle chassis twist it will absorb the extra movement.

When you are on the brakes fully does your carb return spring fully collapse?

Rubber gromets?

Servo shimmed up?

Hope this helps,
TEX

rcegj, what kind of servo's are you using? Try switching brands, I love the Futaba 9451. Are the gears going out, are they getting hot, locking up? Have you sent a servo in so they could tell you whats blowing them, or give you some advice.

I figured as much. I just blew a 590 this weekend. Worked fine through my last qualifier. Went to start for the main, and it was dead. I've checked my setup at least dozen times before I ever hit the track, so I highly doubt that was the issue. I personally think its using a cheaper servo, near a hot buggy engine, with lots of vibration.

Two 9000T's are going in next. I have a friend at the track that runs them in his 8ight and hasn't had any problems at all. Thought about the 9000S for throttle for the faster response, but heard its just a pain to drive and you wind up turning down the exp anyway.

Anyone have the link to that servo setup page? I tried searching for it but came up empty handed.

If you're looking for a painter, I would suggest this thread.

An airbrushed body by a decently talented painter will run around $40 and up, not counting cost of body. for example, Shop UFO charges 50 flat, in addition to the body. I believe Roly is comparable, as am I. You're paying for quality, so if you balk at that price, you're usually looking at less complicated schemes with less sophisticated effects (no pinstriping, no drop shadows, etc).

Nice paint job, but with a body like that to show off, it should be mounted on a sparkly clean 8! BTW, come out and race for once! You know youll be seeing my clown car 8 from its bumper!

could someone help me out please.

thanks ethan
truggys are the same a friend of mine did a servo on the first tank.

I have been using a futaba 9451 since day 1 and it hasn't skipped a beat.
40-60 min finals no prob. I"m also using an EX10 with the ABS function operating so i don't know if this may also be helping to releave some of the strain while braking

also seems to be problems with certain engines, everyone I know running novarossi's have had no probs, Ninja,s and RB,s seem to do servos maybe something to do with the size and position of the carbs. My rossi carb is basically straight and i still have about 3-5mm of clearance between the carb and the centre diff mount just a thought would be interested in hearing what engines where being used when servos have called it a day.
