Thumbs up How are these choices

I wrote a thread a couple days ago asking a couple questions and just wanted some advice and possibly some tips of the parts ive bought.
I recently bought the RC8, bought the Jammin JPX.21 engine, JP1 pipe and Futaba S9451 for my steering servo and the Futaba S9351 for the throttle. Are these good choices ? Oh, what battery pack is most using, the flat or hump ?
If there is any other advice, please foward your thoughts. Thank you for everything.
And, is that a good engine ? Tried finding some talk on older threads but couldn't find any.

From,
Bored at work on Thanksgiving

Everything on your list looks good but I would switch the servos around. Use the 9351 for steering and the 9451 for throttle.

So you do want the 9351 for steering, I guess I thought the one with more torque was to go to the throttle. Whatever you guys say, im totally new to nitro.

You definitely want the stronger servo for steering.

Hope you don't have to stay at work much longer.

In that case, thanks for doing what you do. We all sleep a little better at night until the smoke detector goes off.

Will a flat receiver pack even fit in the battery box? I admit that I am perfectly content running my 1600Mah hump packs. As a result I have never cared enough to really look into alternatives but from what I know the flat packs are for touring cars and won't physically fit in your typical 1/8th scale battery box.

Oh and if you are racing I'd get two 1600 packs or 3 1200-1300 packs (assuming you go that route). Those servos are going to be hungry and nothing is more frustrating than killing a receiver pack in the middle of a race.

I agree. You'll definitely want to get multiple packs. Unless you go lipo...but that's a whole different monkey.

The flat rx packs fit great in the battery box. I have a Venom 1600 flat pack in my RC8's battery box.

Your list sounds pretty good but for future reference you should ask those questions BEFORE buying everything

The RC8 must have a different style battery box because I know that I'm not getting a flat pack into my Kyosho battery box.
