My set-up was money...yours spins in circles if you give it more than 1/4 throttle

Xray is the answer to all problems

oh yea i have to try that !

Maybe so, but it turns. It's not my fault you have a heavy throttle finger. I seem to get it around the track just fine without spinning out after 1/4 throttle. Besides your setup wasn't on that truck. Not properly at least.

I'm with Oasis here. You must have asked the wrong question. And don't even start Xray boy. We all know we wouldn't be having this conversation if Xray wasn't giving you a deal to run their sh!t.

Dont forget to change your axels (front and center) grease or oil them before every run as well.

Not going to cut if for steering on a truggy. Look into the hitech 7950 or 7955. Thats what the big boys use.

I would guess servo saver, it will make it push like a ...... off power when loose. Mine did, I re-set it, tighten the servo saver up and it turned off power like a touring car.

customer service is good..lots and lots of
centering problems..oh and who are the "big boys" that use them..

Drake? Truhe? Those aren't "big boys"?

Not sure what Hitec's you used but if they weren't Ti gear Hitec's you haven't actually run a Hitec servo. None of the Ti gear Hitec's have centering problems that aren't user caused.

Mitch I agree that the 9100S isn't a good choice for a truggy steering servo. If that's what you're running that is certainly part of the problem. I'm still convinced that a lot of it is in your setup, and we'll get that figured out for you. I'd like to see you drop a 7955 or 7950 in there for steering and move your 9100S to throttle.

if you call JR they'll tell you not to run a S in 1/8 period. T's all around.
