Default What do you think of New Sportwerks Raven BX?

Just a couple of weeks ago I bought a Brand New Raven BX. I replaced the crappy stock servo for a JR Racing servo. I was just wondering what do you think of it? I think its ok.

if i could turn back time, my first rc would have been a buggy. stadium trucks seem to be sooo much more forgiving. with a buggy you learn valuable lessons in handling.

for any entry level rtr, it looks rather nice. the esc gives room for motor upgrade, aluminum shocks, and steel turnbuckles (some rtrs have plastic camber links).

I assume it's very similar to the Raven ST, which i thought was REALLY impressive out of the box.

As far as RTR buggies go.. they are few and far between. The duratrax comes to mind, as does the traxxas bandit... but i'd put the Sportwerks head and shoulders above these two.

Will have to drive the wheels off it if you're racing the graphite XXX BK2/CR/B4 FT brigade....

But for the money, they are exceptional value IMO.

Cool

I'm having trouble with breaking the servo mounts. I broke the stock servo's mounts right away. Thats why I got the JR servo and Then last saturday I broke that too. What do you think servo saver too tight??I'm not the greatest driver in the world but I didn't think I was driving that bad. Also thanks for the imput. Other the the servo I replaced the front shocks with AE 30 wt and it is more stable no w.
