Why would anyone other than rock crawlers need 333 oz of steering power? I prefer to have the torque servo for the throttle, sure it's not as fast, but with engines that are similar to light switches when given throttle, either on or off, is speed really important? We're talking hundreths of a second, something most people can't tell.

I use a Futaba s9451 for steering ( it's been in 4 1/8 buggies, Savage X, and now the 8-t) with no problems up until this past weekend with a stripped gear. My throttle is an s9351, and knock on wood, it's been in all of my cars as a thottle.

Check your center diff screws the 4 that hold the upper plate on with the brake cams. Loosen them, then tighten until snugg them oosen turn. You may have them tight and binding up the movement. You can download & print another manual.

Interesting! I use the opposite; 9451 on throttle and 9351 on steering in my ST-R. (My engine, LRP .28 Spec3, has a nice broad power range so a speedy servo is needed for good throttle control. The 9351 has both torque and speed for steering a truggy.)

I'm with ya. I need a slower servo to make up for my heavy trigger finger. lol. JR 9000T (320 oz./.15) for the THROTTLE and Ace 1015 (200 oz/.10) for STEERING. The faster Ace made my buggy more comfortable to drive and the slower JR helped me get more control coming off all corners. Of course, I'm still trying to learn to drive smooth. lol.

Air8, do you have any expo set in the radio? if not try negative 20-30%. That will smooth the truck at higher speeds.

I have the original Spek. DX2 and it does not have expo. I've been looking for a better radio cause I'm about to have 5 vehicles and switching the RX is a PIA sometimes. Especially with the Losi vehicles.

do i need to mount the rubber washers things for my throttle servo the manual says my servo doesnt need the washers to raise it so i thought that the rubber ones might raise it to where it might bind
