Did I have to adjust much? Hmmm, I think this is very personal. If you got shaky hands, when the adrenaline flow, then it might be too fast.

Personally, I find it's easier to go to a fast servo, than from a fast to a slow. I went from a standard Acoms servo through 2 others, gradually being faster. And finally, the 2123. So I didn't took the BIG step at once.

You will be amazed. The first times you'll probably hit the boards at the end of the straight. Simply because you are used to turn the steering wheel several meters befor the corner. And you'll do that in the beginning. But now the car actually turn, when you ask it to... SLAM !

Which KO TX do you have? If it's a too big step at once, you can probably adjust the steering speed a little down at your TX. This way you can take it in smaller steps, until you are prerared for full speed.

What I really like, is that a fast servo makes it posible to steer contra if the car slides. Or to change direction in the middle of a chicane.

Cool, thanks.
