Do you mean the 2413? If so that is a great servo for the T2 007, also the Futaba S9550 wich is simmilar to the 007 but around $30 less

KO 2413 and Futaba 9550 are "slim" servos , 2143 is a discontinued servo, you can see the specs here: http://www.kopropo.com/discontinued_servos.htm

At $80 (new) the Futaba S9550 is an increadable value, it has a CM, BB, MG, and is low profile. Not sure how it compares to the 2143 I havent read the specs, but being as it is discontinued it may be hard to get repaired or find parts for if you ever need to

The Futaba s9550 is probably the most used servo in TC

The KO 2143 is good...it pretty much equal performance to the 2343, 2363, and 2365 (2343 added programmability, 2363 added a heatsink, 2365 added a hybrid gear). It was their flagship servo just 4 years ago, and replacement gears are readily available from KO dealers.

Thanks guys, on another topic, Im currently building a 007 and gathering/purchasing all electronic gear for it, Ive bought an LRP Sphere am Im going the brushless route for convenience.
Now Ive read the instructions on how to connect the wires to the BL motor, all straight forward, but connecting it to a BM it says the blue and yellow wires are combined, so it it just a matter of soldering these two wires on the - motor tab? Is their an easier or neater way to connect from brushed to brushless? how do you all do this?

Ive noticed some other drivers use what I think is a power capacitor, looks like a small battery cell, what is this used for and is it recommended to have.

thanks

I am looking at getting into asphalt and rubber racing. Although I would love to get the 07 T2 EU Edition I may have to settle for a T2 due to budget. What modifications are necessary to make this car comparable to the 07 T2 Eu Edition? Would it be better to just save up and get a 07 T2 instead?

Also looking at the Mi3, Cyclone, 415 MSXX.

Which LRP Shpere are you talking about there is the origional sphere, the TC, and the Competition, the reason I ask is cause the TC and the Competition (I think) come with a capacitor. As for the wiring, yep both of the wires need to be soldered to the negitive tab on a Brushed motor, no way around it
thanks

I would save up and buy a new 007 EU, the other cars you listed are the same price or more. For Asphault the 007 would be my first choice followed closley by the Mi3, but the Mi3 has a few issues to work out, the 007 is a proven winner with no weak parts

hi guys

newbie here to xray T2 007, so my apologies in advance if the questions i will ask has been posed and answered...

so here we go - in rebuilding the t2 diffs (which is not that often comparewd to other kits, thank god) - would you guys recommend the following procedures...

1. sand the diff washers with 600 grit until it's super smooth?
2. instead of grease for the diff washers, could i use diff lube (corally)?
3. and instead of greasing the diff balls, could i use ball bearing oil (muchmore)?

Thanks in advance for any help and looking forward in learning a lot of stuff from all you

All of the LRP Sphere's are Brushless and Brushed, I am assuming it is the Origional Sphere, I belive they have an internal capacitor, but it could never hurt to add another one

1.Can't Hurt
2.Not Sure, but Xray OneWay Grease is Best
3.Don't think so, bearing oil will just run out, you need something with vescosity, so it dosent breakdown or run out, again OneWay Grease is Best
