Default Best servos and radio for a Jammin buggy?

i was at the track today and came to find that my garbage steering servo didn't work so well.

I want to know what radio and steering servo i should get.

I only have one car, so i don't need the TOP OF THE LINE stuff.. i just want a good quality one that i wont need to replace.

Thanks

The Airtronics MX-3 is pretty good. I would try, and go spektrum. They're good radios, and chances are that you're gonna go spek sometime.

+1 for the JRs above. For steering, you want 120 oz/in or more and .10 second transit time or lower.

These are pretty expensive. If you going to race competitively then yea get those, if you a club level, imo a hitech 645MG will do pretty well, and if not a 965 is great.

And that is fine radio!

the spectrum is the radio i'd choice. airtronics 94358 is something to look into too as far as steering servos.

Futaba 3PM 2.4Ghz is a good choice too, lots of people seem to prefer the FASST system to spektrum.

+1 on the JR9000T for steering. You'll never need more it has it all. The 8800T would be good too for the steering. For throttles I run the JR 4800T or 4800S.

As for the radios you can't go wrong with the Spektrum system in a good radio. It's easier to spend a little more at first and overkill it then to get something too lowrange and try to get your funds back to get something good. I run the JR Z1 and it has more than enough features and model memories. Equip it with the spektrum system and enjoy trouble free running and no crystal chasing I've also heard the the Futaba fast system is spot on but I've never tried it. Those whom I have talked to about the Spektrum radio say that it doesn't have enough features for them...

Good luck.

I'm running a Futaba 3PM ($189) in HRS mode with two Ace 1313 digital servos ($77 ea, 173oz / .13 transit) in my Jammin FTE. No complaints!

Look into the updated servo saver (OFN40625, $14) set, it helps free up the steering and I believe includes a slightly stiffer spring.

I'm running a Hitec HS-5645MG. It seems to work well. 45-50 bucks at my LHS full digital. Make sure your running a reciver pack though. As for a radio, JR makes a budget XR2i computer radio but I would recoomend the XR3i as it is FM and will not twitch as much.

I would not reccomend any Hitec servos, as they all seem to die after a year of use. A really nice servo is the JR z590. its a cheap reliable metal gear servo. As for a radio go Spektrum! The DX2 or DX3 both come stock with a z590 and plus with spektrum, u get no radio interference!
