I always liked the double headlights, so it's a 69' for me.

Hey guys, just wanted to share a couple videos of our local racer Alfonso Irwin doing real drag racing in Venezuela back in 2000, and 2002. He's been involved high level drag racing for over 20 yrs and its cool to see one of our own racing at that in real life. Pretty cool stuff...especially for you T/A lovers

I'm running the Futaba 9550 - and it "slows" down from .12 to .14 at 4.8 volts..

I'd double-check the specs of the one you're running with its manufacturer - which servo are you running anyways?

I think you might have answered your own question

From Tower's Site:

Speed: .23 sec/60 @ 4.8V or .16 sec/60 @ 6V
Torque: 44 oz-in @ 4.8V or 56.8 oz-in @ 6V

So this one takes a HUGE hit on 4.8 volts

Dodgeboy - Horizon supposedly carried them, so you might be able to order them for the shop

That's a VERY low-end Futaba servo. At the very worst with that one, you might want to run a 5-cell receiver pack to power the radio.

I use a s9550 and a s9451 and have never had issues in a 4-cell car unless the car was just about dead (13-15 minutes in...).

Some of our better TA racers just use a JR590. Being that the vehicle is only doing 25MPH, having a 100 dollar digital servo is a bit overkill.

It couldn't hurt, but it's not necessary to be competitive.

Whatever you choose I'd just make sure it's metal geared.
