When I saw the design I feared it. Its in the same location as the serpent, just tunred sideways. Problem with that is the board on the servos is on the bottom....which means its facing the motor directly. Hope they get that squared away. I did notice a few other things about the buggy....but we'll see if they change it for the production model.

No way a pro driver flies to Thailand for the world championships without backup servos in his pit bag

I mean this thing was supposed to come out so long ago and they have been putting it off because there were "issues" that needed to be addressed and they didn't feel comfortable releasing it so soon. It would be a huge embarrassment for Team Durango to have put off the release for so long only for it to have the same problem that the Serpent had. Which they are aware of I'm sure. Only time will tell I guess.

I for one think that everything will be ok. I think they learned from what happened with the Serpent.

maybe they are designing a new radio tray as we speak and having the comapny make it overnight and have it over nighted.

there is only one type of failure that would keep me off the track.. and that would be Electrical.

So you know for a FACT that his electrical issues were infact the throttle servo? KO is present at the Worlds-why would there be 'overnighting'?. I dont know about all of this.....
