For normal use KO 2143 is very good...you don't have to bother with the additional FET wire of the 2123.

I have been using the Futaba 9451 lately...not as fast as the 2143 (0.1s) however, it is very well made and also worth considering.

did you said that you have a servo saver on the actual servo? if you do, you dont need one on the actual servo, the T3 has a built in servo saver.

I think your problem is your servo saver. Unscrew the servo saver and there should be little teeth on the actual servo. reposition the servo saver so that nutrual is nutrual for the servo also.

A servo sasver is the part that connects it to the shaft, turnbuckle, etc. all servos have one and will not work without one.

there are also servo horns, which you are forgetting.

Some people run steering servos without servo savers (dumb, but whatever they want ), and many cars have built in servo savers.


R C king, did your servo have metal gears? For off road, you should have them.

If your really good and you dont hit walls at all (which we all do) you can run with a solid aluminum servo arm. All power from the servo goes to the ground, but you run a major risk of messing up your servo.
