Next time, try reading the whole posts before you reply. Thanks.

I can't make out half the crap you write anyway so don't bother repeating yourself.

This is wicked stoopid!!!! I tried to concact AE itself, only to get "our poop doesn't stink" and a link for non-warantee repairs. I am NOT spending what they say - ($30 - 150) repair for just their XP3D system standard servo - NO WAY!!!!!!!!!!!!

The stanard servo broke, grinding gears (steering right) after NO CRASH, on its 3rd run, with a TAMIYA BMW Mini Cooper!!!!!! YAAAY!!!

I think that was the WORST EVER servo that I've ever known! (aside from getting an Airtronics system - hell - full of nothing but total problems). I should go back to Futaba . . . . .

I really like the radio system itself, but everything else IMHO wicked sukks - ESP their servos. Obviously, AE is doing a third-party job with their radio gear, but I sure hope 2 hell that they don't ship out a sweet RC8 with POOR QUALITY servos like the one I got!!!!!!!!

YaaaaaaaY - yeah! Thanks for sticking it to me, Team Associted! To think I usedta race the originial '10T in the mid 90's back in Texas!!!!! RADIOS R NOT THEIR EXP!!!!!


dont evah buy an AE servo?

buy a dictionary instead in the vain hope your incoherent sentences and under developed spelling may be understood by a wider audience...

Hello dragnse7en

AE (or any brand) Standard Servo + RC8 (or any 1/8th buggy) = PROBLEMS.

There are some things that you should not be cheap with and servos are of among those things. Be happy that you only had to repair some $7 gears and not replace your RC8.

No matter how you view the situation, that servo should not have been used for that application. The car is way too heavy and powerful for that servo.

Good luck in the future with that...

Greasemonkey - try TO READ THE WHOLE POST - before you even try to make a comment. It makes intelligent conversation. No, trust me - it really does. Try it some time.

I swear that over half the ppl didn't actually read this thread - they just picked and poked.


I broke the AE servo in my Tamiya Mini Cooper.

K - bottom line. If YOU READ UP, AND SEE THAT THE PROBLEM HAS BEEN RESOLVED, I'D actually appreciate some pos feedback.

Otherwise, I have no problem reporting you to the MOD for abusive posts . . .

Tamiya Frog from 1985 - Kyosho Outlaw Ultima ST - AE RC10T (cow hide LOL) - Tamiya M03-L Mini Cooper - Tamiya 1/24 Tamtech Posche 962C - Tamiya 1/24 Tamtech Ferrari Testarossa - Tamiya TA05-R - AE TC5FT

Doesn't pos stand for "piece of shit"? You want some piece of shit feedback?

Ok, here we go; If you raced in the 80's, that would make you at least 30, to 40 years old. Cant think the last time i heard a mid thirtys fella say YAAAAYY!!!!, This is wicked stoopid!!!!, IMHO wicked sukks, something about "evah" and more exclaimation marks i have "evah" seen in a single post.
So when you say "I raced in the 80's with moses" you actually mean late 90's to 2000's with daddy?

Did you replace your spacebar and 2/3rds of your keyboard with the exclaimation mark key or what?

Enough of my fooling, back to constrctive critisism, I know a sure-fire way to solve the problem with your servo on the mini. It's actually quite a commen problem for some i've been told. Instructions are as follows;

1) dissasemble vehicle to bare chassis. Take care to keep appropriate parts with screws together in bags. Clean everthing to ensure an "as-good-as-new" as much as you can.
2) remove dead servo.
3) go to wwwrctech.net.
4) place an add in the For sale section for Tamiya Mini Cooper *no servo*
5) complete sale.
6) enroll in level 1 basic english and grammar course at closest available centre.
7) win.

Great success
