They've ripped off Chris Attebery's aluminum battery tray design..

I think I might have gone a bit overboard with the upgrades..
I just like tinkering around with it.

The battery tray and even the center diff actually look like they one upped apes and kingheadz.. just slightly.. extra esc mount holes, lightened areas etc a few design changes on the battery tray but yes a very close design. Similar w/ the motor mount w/ dual bearing.. close to kh, but they have some differences. No idea how good of material they used vs Attebery's or KH's but I wouldn't call either a direct "knock off" or copy. If someone had a thought to improve on a design make it, people will either buy it or not. I would give Chris the business if I were in the market though as he's been great to our group with needed items for years now.


I'd stay away from the center CVD they make.. from the looks of it to get the shaft off you would have to remove it off the front outdrive or take the center diff right out. Pain in the butt.. I'd rather replace more often and keep it as designed.

Now if losi would be super cool and make us a easy release center diff mount.. another story, then they could do something like that kkpit center cvd with less issue. Maybe Attebery could drop a two part center diff mount with dual bearings on both sides, similar to the 8ights; 4 screws holding the top 1/2 down all alum. Wow Id be all over this part.

I can't remember if I've posted this already, but I've finally received my Radiopost 2207M servo.

Compared to my Savox 1258TG, the Radiopost supposedly has 30% more torque.
All I can say is that the Radiopost is completely silent (!!! the Savox makes a LOT of noise), and in my opinion feels superfast and surgically precise. Imho best servo ever.
The Savox is still a very good servo, but this just somehow feels even better to me.

I was thinking the same thing.. though I'll still stick my my hitec 985mg servo's, I run them in most all of my 1/10 vehicles and in my 1/8 buggy with great luck. Last forever and great price to start.. VERY LOW amp draw.

Heres the servo you guys should try out its quiet its fast/torquey. Titanuim gears $35.00 ! The replacement gears are cheap too. Ive had zero issues with it centers fine and keeps it no need for a extra BEC/Cap. I run it in the SCTE and my 2wd SC.

yes for model info, I do run a crazy servo on my 8ight-te JR 400+oz super fast just cause its such a big vehicle but ya in everything else I have the 985mg's. keep in mind those ratings on servo's are as good as the manu wants them to be ;P Any of them you can run a higher voltage too if you feel it's a bit sluggish. The 985mg is not sluggish though when I added my dex410 to my fleet I think I did just swap a different servo in my scte since I started running it what 3 years ago now? I needed one quick and ended up with a different model 7954sh also a great servo so far. I will say my 985mg I put in the buggy is still strong and kickin rear in the 410 I've run the same 985mg in my 8ight-e for 3yrs too :P The newer 7954sh does have better specs for about the same price, but I don't notice any difference on the track racing.

PS 985 is 170+ and .13 at 6v as long as you can edit your settings, but still imo great even if you cant.
