Default Not enough money

I had an Ofna Starter Box that shorted out on me and was hoping to get store credit so I get Futaba 5150 Steering Servo but the shop fixed the box instead. They said I could get rid of the pull start and get a "back plate" wich would increse power.

Is that true? Also are there any suggestions they are price friendly I could get to upgrade my Truggy.

Thanks for all your help.

Brian

Default Bought Steering Servo

Ok I went to get my Futaba 9150 or 5150, I can't remember exactly which one but they were out. The guys at the shop told me that I need to consider the "JM Z9000T" Ultra High Torque Digital Servo. It has a 3 year warranty versus the 90 day with the Futaba.

Was I STEERED in the right direction or did I get ripped off.

Thank you, Bhard

It's a very good servo. About the warranty though, if the servo has seen a lot of use they will not repair it for free. The warranty really covers defects in materials and original workmanship. Had that happen to my JR digital servo after about 2 and 1/2 years. Sent it in and got the call, "sir that will be $85 to repair the servo."

Just my experience with JR, three servos sent in and none repaired.

For a truggy, you need to throw it on the steering the most powerful servo you could get. On my list, the ones to go is the Futaba 9351, Ko-Propo ICS-2368 PDS or very simmilar (14Kg of torque and around 0.13 travel time), some people swear for the JR 9000T but... being frankly, never used them.

During all the years only I used Futaba and KO servos. Actually all my cars have one of those. Futaba 9451 for the steering and throttle on the On-Road cars and KO ICS-2368 for the MBX5-T.

Regarding transmitters, any of those ones you told is great. I still have my trusty KO Mars-R but... lately been looking many times the KO Helios, but... their looks throw me off but seems inevitable that I'll end with a Helios one of those days.

Angry Update on JM Servo

I had it installed because I didn't have the time to mess with it. Three times around the trimed and it came apart. It's not broken but I believe it's an omen.

Now I have my servo, kinda. What should I do next, more servos or take the pull start of and get a back plate. If I get a back back plate will it make a difference? I was told it would?????

Thanks as always, Bhard

Not only will you need a backplate but you will probably need to grind off the starter lug from the crankshaft. The difference is,...... minimal to a basher. the engine will spool up a tiny fraction of a second faster and you lose about 60grams of pull starter.
