I haven't found a problem with them. But I tend to replace them around the time I replace the diff balls so I have a freshie.

In other news, after this weekends punting and chasing of bent / tweaked parts. I am putting together a tweak do's and don'ts list. Some obvious, some not so obvious. I spent a bunch of time working on peoples cars that were amazingly jacked up because they had misc things from to much CA making the under side of the chassis uneven, to battery ballast plates causing tweak, to battery packs causing tweak / hitting the top deck, To screws sticking out of the bottom, missing bulkhead screws. It was just insane some of the stuff that happened. lol. Details later.

The JR z8800s is a solid servo. I got four of them.

That might work, I would probably be better at that than trying to race you lol. My daily rate for being Chief Mechanic is $300 / day + expenses. But I would gladly work on your car for that rate. I might even give you a discount. hows $250/ day sound? lol I was hoping to keep my win to loss ratio vs you at about 2:1 but was not happy with 1:2 lol

Personally I like Ko Propo, 2413 works well and like other similarly sized servo's it shaves 15 grams off a std sized servo. lower priced servos like the 9550 work also

I use one of these (but I made my own inserts that hold different size shock bodies for on-road and off-road).

This pump http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000GA3KCE/

Default Atomic ECS

I have a quick question to you guys that are using the atomic ECS. Do the couplings and pins of Xray parts fit the atomic ECS. If the parts are worned out, they get thrown away? I can't seem to find any atomic parts in places where they sell it.
