I have been running ace servos for over 2 years with no issues at all. No brown outs or glitches. its stupid fast holds a line and flat out works.

My gear set's/Top cases Flat out Failed Every time.

and yes I have more then one.




Ill stand by my statement and say that Ace/XP or AE uses Sub par Brass gear's that just aren't up to the task, Not to mention the plastic bushing for the top case.(pretty sure that has been addressed) But did nothing for me when i couldn't finish a race due to Constantly Stripping out gear's or top cases. HITEC FTW !!!


That's my opinion and im stickin to it.

a buddy was having an issue with his savox 1258 in his tekin rs / spektrum rx equipped losi xxx-sct. i gave him my novak glitchbuster and it helped but did not eliminate the problem. then i told him to check the endpoints on his steering, which resolved it. it was probably going beyond the point where the steering rack locks and causing the servo to pull too much power from the BEC. i bet if he takes out his novak cap it will still be flawless

Ya ya ya, I no another BCE chassis lol, I just came back from the durango to the losi about 3 weeks ago to give the dingo a try but still felt like the losi is a better truck and just won 2 races in a row last friday and sat night, and decided to get the BCE chassis again after how good it was last time and got it today.

Ya I know that people have built pics but im going to do it again for the people that are new and to just let people know what to do.

On the center diff/motor mount part (closes to the rear) you will need to use shorter screws because the stock ones are too long.


Like this (same ones as the four in the front and four in the rear


Everything else works perfect just need to trim the mud-guards a bit


On the front if you have the aluminum hinge pin holders its kinda hard to get them on so you will need to screw them all around just a bit and then go do all the screws and tighten them up all the way to get snug.


Same thing for the rear as the front.


DONE! Cant wait to hit the track on friday and see how much I like it lol.

Fact? I was going to pick up a Ballistic 17.5, Tekin RS, Savox 1257 for my TC6, but with an Airtronics 92744 Rx. Bad idea? I don't need a cap on my Airtronics/Novak/1258, 1257 2wd setups. Does the RS have a weaker BEC?

Yes , it is a fact . Not a weaker BEC , Savox servos draw a ton of power .

RX8 has a stronger BEC than the RS/RS Pro .
