I think someone missed that the worlds Track is a bit unusual and very exhausting for all the cars, yes, other car don't had servo problems, but Ryan if is 100% confirmed, burnt only one servo and we don't know the real cause of that, bad servo? some bad landing? bad luck?? anyway if the problem will be real, I think that the Team will solve it at warp speed

That's the best idea I've heard thus far !! GOOD LUCK TO THE LUTZINATOR !!!!

a friend of mine broke two good steering servos on his mp9e in one day! I think we have to wait to really know what was the problem.... Anyway, that doesn't worry me, I'm going to convert my 408 into brushless, no throttle servo needed

it was the servo wire that got damaged in the first heat . they changed the wire and everything seemed ok but the servo then blew.
we have been running the cars for a long time now and have only had one servo fail up untill ryans went at the worlds i dont think you have anything to worry about

Hi Kevin, thanks for helping to set the record straight. For what it's worth, the general consensus is that the circuit in Thailand is also quite hard on the cars, which likely just exacerbates things. Let's hope that the issue is resolved and Ryan can now freely rocket his way to the top.

Edit: also, is it just me or did they raise the cab on the bodyshell rather significantly?

I think that Lutz and Durango are doing very well in Pattaya, dont forget that this is the first Team Durango 1/8 world championship and Lutz had the car only a few week before, I don't think someone can do better

The car is awsome no doubt about it, but every new car has problems at 1st...They will get 'em figured out. Just like serpent had to re-think there radio tray design.
