Got an old JR servo - 80 oz torque and .15 speed... I'm just joking with that servo for this truck right? I shouldn't even think about it right? I should just get a Savox 1257 or 1258, right? I shouldn't even test the truck out with that servo right?

i am not sure what the roar legal width limit for the front of stadium truck is, but i took traxxas slash hex's and put them on the front of my 22t and it creates a very small gap between the rim and the ball cup, it works pretty good, but like i said i dont know if it is roar legal or not yet

that is up to you.........it will test it out just fine but i would plan on changing it at some point. all depends on how anxious you are and if you feel like replacing the servo or waiting.

Finally had a chance to try out the 22t and had a blast, haven't made any changes yet from stock set up, but out of the box it was so much fun and easy to drive!!

Just for a heads up, there are people in the for sale section with some good deals available on good high quality servos...

Do you know how much wider the traxxas slash hex's are? Sounds like a good idea.

Is there anything I can do to the turnbuckles/ballcups to make them easier to adjust instead popping off?

I always use a bit of Chapstick when threading turnbuckles into the ends. Works great nice and easy to adjust and they never stick. Keep a tube in you're pit box.

A touch of black grease on the turnbuckle then thread on the ball cup = smooth as butter!

Default Savox servo shims

Hey guys,

Finally got this Beaty this afternoon and rushed home to build.
What's size shims do you use for savox servos? Do they use a 25 servo horn?

I would suggest around 150oz and up, and .10 speed or faster to be ideal. The Spektrum SS6040 will meet both of these specs and is a very competitive price.
