I bet you are not at all a mugen lover as they actually flex its chassis (no side brace in purpose) to gain more traction and steering

You shop at Bruckners ? I come up there all the time . But to answer your question you should get the best servo you can .But I would be very careful with out a failsafe in that car . This is ny and lots of stray signals and if you run over at whitestone ithere is a good chance of somene turning on a radio with your channel and whiping out your ride. Just a word to the wise . These cars aren't cheap and I would hate to see it destroyed. So be careful and get a failsafe ASAP!!!

Kreidel, its time to have a heart to heart with Bobby. Serpent is a car MADE for him.

Yes, that's what a lot of guys here are saying but that's the trade-off one would need to evaluate hence why I wanted to test them.

It seems they last a good 2 full races (3-4 heats and mains), so it they're truly low-friction, I'm willing to try just to beat Mark.
