On servos it's like everything else..how much do you want to spend,but your buying a hi dollar car so I dont think you really want to put a low performance servo in your car.For a touring car you should have some performance levels,#1.Torque: you should look for at least 80 oz/in.#2.Speed,alot of how fast is up to you,but most racers want a "fast" servo,because speed = responsive.My picks would be,Airtronics: 94758z(digital)94757z(digtal)94357(that's what I use in my xray)94358.but these are not cheap($104 to $109).JR's,DS8417(digital)Z8450(digital)and not cheap($114)Z4750($89)Z590($39)good servo for the money.hitec(alot of people dont like hitec servos,due to centering problems,but these dont have centering problems)HS5975,HS5927(both digital,fast and hi torque)$82 to $89,HS925mg.I hope this helps on the servos.

Don't get Hitec servos. Theyre bad. I've heard of many people having them die for no reason. And I also had that problem. And it didn't make me happy because it was kinda like throwing 60 bucks down the drain. I also didn't even have it for over 6 months before it died. I'm running only Airtronics servos now with no problems at all. The one I have in my x-ray is pretty old and I bought it used from a guy I know the day my Hitec servo died a while ago. And I still don't have any problems with it. I've also heard that JR makes really good servos that very rarly die on you. You can't really go wrong with airtronics or JR. Just my 2 cents.

Can't believe noone suggested KO Propo servos. These are some of the best in the biz.

If you go with the new xray shocks you will need a new front tower. I have the ultra tune front tower and ultra tune rear tower. I would definately buy the new shocks if you're going to upgrade the car.

What are the equivalent oils for the X-Ray Oils?

XRay 20wt = Losi (or Associated or Trinity)?
XRay 30wt = ?
XRay 40wt = ?
?

I think they're pretty close in weights. Probably close enough that an average racer couldn't tell. Mabey even a pro.

I ordered the foam front graphite shock tower and the graphite ultra tune rear shock tower for my t1r. Is there anything else that I would need to get to mount the shocks and camber links? Thanks

Tim - I would go with it You can mount the bory lower over it and it has an additional shock mounting hole that would allow you to stand up the shock more than the regular one.

Im sory I neglected to elaborate. It was the solid top deck. Some of the mod guys where using a solid plus a medium on top, but you have to run the medium one backwards(berign holder side to the back) to get it to work (so belt won't rub on it).
