Futaba 9550 Low Profile. Fits in nicely, strong and fast enough for carpet racing.

I'm using the KO 2413 in mine...specs out just a lil better than the Futaba, and it's available in Canada from the same distributor that handles Xray....

un4, those are standard with the us spec 007.

The JR servo in my sig has as good specs as any other servo. The only ones similar in specs are a few KO's. I'm too new to this to know if it is worth sacrificing speed and torque for lower weight and smaller size, though.

The bulletin says to oil all bearings, which I did. But now that you mention oiling the diffs, I'm realizing that I didn't oil the bearings that are already in the diffs. Should I take it apart to do that? That would kind of suck.

Had a chance to see a T2'007 live last night - nice car. HOLY low top-deck. It'll be intersting to see how the car reacts on our track, the local hot-shoe that got the car was still figuring out set-ups so it was not a good night to judge the performance yet. I do have to say the build quality was typical X-Ray - and the bottom deck looks as thick as a piece of plywood.

I just copied my setup from T2 to T2'007 and the car was brilliant!
For the first time I managed to be at the same and even better pace with our 2 top guys. I even did best lap and best overal 5minutes time!!

If it wasn't for the broken bearings I could have won my first race at National level

don't bet your money on that rumor has it that futaba is consistently underrating its servos. i bet nobody can feel the difference between the two except if they look at their pockets you can get a futaba for $80 form tower.

I don't know if futaba underrating its servos or Ko overrating its servos but I felt no difference when I swaped from KO 2123 to Futaba 9550.

A friend felt again no difference when swaped from sanwa digital one to Futaba.
9550 is a great servo, cheap and small

Nope,

I was one of the few lucky ones in Europe that got the kit on 18th of October. I assemble it on 19th, 21st was my first time on it at the track and 22nd was the race

As the matter of fact I (together with other owners) believe that point the issue to Xray and then led to investigate the issue and give the solution (lube them before you use them)

ok guys any tips on filing the battery slots for 4200,,, besides a dremel and a file and about 4 hours... this chassis is just plain sick i have had carpet chassis before and this is like wow. i cant find my calipers to measure it but i will be filing a long time.. and remember if you do file your chassis wear an airborne respirator and do it by yourself somewhere...that shit is nasty. also i hope they greased the diffs. AND THANK YOU VERY MUCH XRAY FOR KEEPING THE TOP NOTCH QUALITY AND INNOVATIVE IDEAS COMMING ITS WHAT KEEPS ME IN THE HOBBY. i love the rdx but how about a new kit with all the revisions so i dont have to pay 800.00 for it piece by piece. ok big race this weekend i will let you know my opinion of the 007 on ozite.
