i got this 1400mah rx batt to power two heavy duty digital servos that lasts only 50ish minutes. in the main, i go with alkalines.
and last weekend i blew ko2144 steering servo. oh man this off road thing is really abusing the hell out of the electronics.

anyone using a fail safe spring on the carbie ?

That spring is another load on the throttle servo. I also heard digital servos are not good in off road. Right now I only use digital servos on my 1/8 on road car. I am sticking to analogs on my off road. (S9402).

i am using digital servos for throttle and steering

i have only busted one throttle servo so far and that was caused by a big accident

however they arent recommended by most people

you have to set your endpoint adjustments very carefully

i cant wait till MBX5 comes out it looks really cool

I have medium springs all around. My track is really bumpy and have lots of ruts especially in the 200 ft straight. My buggy when I punched the throttle in the straight feels like it's jumping more on the air than touching the ground. Should I go to softer springs so I can get more traction? What will happen if I go soft all around? How about soft at the back and medium in front?

C3? I only know of the C4 and current incarnation the C5. Both of those have heinous amounts of power, both torque and top end.

Top piece of kit. The one I had was almost as nice as my Picco G1.

Just don't try the '01 though...

the rb c3 is the 3port sport motor. For the money it is a good buy especially if you are new to .21 power. I have seen some of those motor run the same lap times as the big boys.

What's wrong with the OS V01B? Everyone tells me it's the most consistent, dependable, competetive buggy engine around.

I'd go with harder springs all around, combined with thicker shock oil. So, the buggy would skip the ruts and small bumps.
Adding a little more droop front and rear would be nice too.
