I have a another question for you guys.

I have a nitro MT ( i know, not a bugy, and not very good )
The steering servo saver isn't very strong, and has a fair amount of give in it.

Does anyone have a recomendation for a servo saver?

I have Hitec 635 or 645 MG(I forget the exact # at this second)

wow, I even got the brand wrong.

Obviouslyl, monster trucks have monster size tires...in my style of driving I would go for a quick and strong servo like a 945 or 925.
but still.....the airtronics servo are the best (94358s)

no tambok, the nmt isn't a monster truck, its a 4wd ST.

corvette - that 645 should work fine, there should be plenty of companies making servo savers that will work in that application - I believe kimbrough make some nice ones.

Don't rememebr too well, since it's been a long time since I owned an nmt but I believe these are some choice products.

I used to run a 358, well, its still a 358, but its slow enough and has about as much torque as a stocker now. As soon as I have some time I'm gonna send it in.

I've been asking around, this was from a friend in canada:

Defenatly go KO. I have the airtronics 358 which everybody worships and I can assure you the KO is nicer. The airtronics is pretty fast with no-load, but slows down quite a bit quicker than the KO's under load. And even under no load the KO seems about the same speed and defenatly has as much torque. The ko 2143 on the other hand is just 0.01 of a second faster than the 358 and it blows it away. WAY faster, so airtronics has to be overrating them. My guess is they are rating the time for 60 degrees while in motion, and ko is rating the total time for it stopped, accleringing, turning 60 degrees and stoping again. That would of course be a better test. Or like I said airtronics are just plain overrating them. Anyway, buy the KO.

This guy above has the old ko 2174/ko 2143 also, not the latest programmable/digital ones - and he STILL says its WAY better than the 358 - and yes, he owns both.

Also got another friend who sent me a video of the steering in action on a buggy with the 2344, was enough to make me want one anyway.

While everyone seems to worship them (357/8 or ERG-VB/R i think), I have seen more than just a few guys jump over onto the KO train, and seem to love it.

From personal experience, I think the Futaba's are great too - but i'm going to give the KO a shot this time, they are cheaper and jap made which I like.

As for different servos going up in smoke, well the highend ko/fut's are all digital, so yeah - if they're not setup properly (endpoints, etc), you're going to kill them. It's not hard to set up, but I guess that with the 35x's being analogue, you wouldn't have that worry - so the amount of people killing them is much less.

Just me justifying (to myself haha) why i'm going for the ko
udi.

KO has very poor customer service when you will have problems. I say will because their is not a servo made that can last a very long time in a 1/8 buggy and thats a fact. The best I have used are the futaba 9350 they have out lasted any others before them and I have tried them all.

i'm interested in trying this pipe. did you use the silencer, or would that just restrict power? i was running my p5 w/ an 053 pipe & waller, but then switched to an 086 & waller. i'm running the mugen white shoes, so bottom isn't an issue. it feels good so far, but i'm always willing to try something new. have you had any experience w/ those pipes. if so, how does it compare to the os?

last saturday, i tried to make it out to kz, but got up late. instead i went to crystal park. super loose, but james did water the track a couple times, and it got better. i hadn't been there in awhile, and they made some upgrades. they have an air compressor now and decent table to pit on, even for the offroad track. james added a wood plank bridge - it was kinda cool. atleast i had the track to myself and couple monster tuck guys.

anyway, i did some engine pipe testing and i found out a few things. i ran the ws72 w/ the 086 and power adaptor w/ standard ofna carbon clutch - sucked on the bottom. i'm thinking it was the clutch, so i'm gonna change that out. the 086 was great for top, but in order to punch threw the corners, i had to keep my momentum rolling and the rpm up. so far, my top p-5 seems to be my best performer. i just bought another new p-5 (purple head), i'm thinking about an eb mod. i'm interested in anyone's feed back.

thanks,
herb
