Its a common trick for 1/8 scale guys but I use a "diff dunker" (A-main) and a small mason jar full of Naptha solvent (hardware store). It works Great and fast to clean the gears.
It may be frowned upon; but regular gasoline also works.

Well, I guess I'm lucky. MMP, savox 1258, 1415 motor and spektrum cap.....= fixed glitch problem. No BEC needed.
I left the link v at 5.5v....did not increase to 7v like some have mentioned. I can't find anywhere that savox can handle or not handle 7v.

Been driving around with no problems now...I laugh, it's funny how fast this truck is with this motor when it's not cutting out.

I thought I read in the book that motor cleaner would work. Is that not true?

I only run the 9100t's, and am very careful with my endpoints. Any servo with direct power will fry in short order if the end points are off, since the servo can draw unlimited amps.

I ran them that way in 8th scale, and now with the SCTE, no issues as of yet. But, like all JR servos, the top cases suck, and the gear trains will break. I would quit using them but they keep sending me new ones

Heck, I even run the KO servo in my 2wd sct unregulated.

When you say "endpoints" how is that set? I use a DX2S radio. Is it always a good idea to limit the servo travel to just close to max.
Is "steering rate" and "travel" the same thing. I have both options

But with gas prices now days the other options might be cheaper. LOL

Thats what I used. Worked fine. Just dont use it on the o-rings. The motor cleaner can dry them out I read somewhere. Never tested it to see if it was true. Not worth the hassle to find out.

Limiting travel per side is setting the end points.. you just don't want to exceed what the truck is capable of turning forcing issues w/ the servo saver and your servo.

So is it a normal thing to set it to say 90%? How do you go about finding out how far your truck turns vs. endpoint settings?

Sorry...new at this

The best way I have found is to turn the expo for the steering down on your radio, then turn the wheel all the way to the left and turn the expo up until the wheel wil not turn anymore without putting strain on the servo. You can usually tell that point because you will hear the servo buzz a little. Then turn the wheel to the right and repeat the process. Then you will have full throw on the steering servo without putting strain on the servo and the servo saver. Hope this answered your question.

+1 and do the setting adjustment with the truck off the ground.
