a better title for your thread might be "MY Losi truggy turns like $@%"

as youve already stated, youve driven other losi truggys and they turned better.

You should ask these people why. They know your track, they can see your car.

Everyone on here is either going to say "try XYZ setup" or "buy brand XYZ" When in reality, there could be something physically wrong with your car.

I assume you take my post as sarcasm or being rude...

its just the facts. I work in customer service for R/C Cars and i get people calling me asking tech support questions all the time.. Seeing the car makes things easier and i'm pretty sure anyone at your local track that drives a losi car would be more than willing to help you out.

4 9100 servos $400
replacements of gears 3 times $60

Running Hitec servos and not having to worry about them failing during a big main

PRICELESS

Due to trying to run the 7940 on steering. Kinda like running an S on steering. Wrong servo for the application is gonna fail right?

Your right Mike, and we'll get him figured out. I race with Mitch. I'll take care of it.

Do you notice a smell? If yes then yes you are correct.

hahaha the best customer support is the one you never need! 2 years running hitec and never had to call, or send them a servo. Also never had to buy a set of gears. Now my buddy that I race with is a die hard jr guy and has already replaced 3 out of 4 9100's this year. Jr has also told him that he has used up his 3 year warranty in 2 months. So when his awesome JR servos with awesome support go up in smoke again he will be boooing all the way to the LHS.

Can't agree more! I can't remember the last time I worried about a servo. I just kind of take them for granted now. They just do their job, in all of my cars.
