Thanks, I was leaning towards that particular model. BTW, I was told on another forum that Digital servos were prone to interference? Any comments on that? I am going to use this
with a 27mhz band M8 tx and a Novak xxxtra rx.
Thanks

Just a thought on superfast servos-It makes the car very twitchy, unless you have a transmitter that can turn down the speed. I actually get better lap times with a slower servo (KO PDS 712) than with the faster ones.

I use the 2143 and have the steering speed set to 65% on my Radio. On thing I am noticing on my Servo is that in my Losi it never made a sound when not turning. In my T1 there is a noise coming from it constatly. I have to turn the Servo to the left .. right... left to not make it make the noise. Once it has stopped if I just bump the front tires the nosie comes back. I am stummped why it does this.

I place a cap on the ESC plug. With out it the car is twitchy.



It's a 35v 47uF cap. You do not need it to be 35v or a mere 47uf. I would have placed another 16v 470uF cap on there. What is pictured was all I had when the last one went belly up.

Another thing, you can use the open port on the ESC instead of soldering to the ESC's +/- pins in the plug like I did. I was prepping for Personal Transponders that never happened.

What type of cap is that and how is it connected. is it connected to the wires from your ESC to the receiver or does it go into the BEC area? Also what Wires connect to what on the Cap. Will this maybe get rid of that noise I am getting?

Thanks

The longer wire on a radial cap is the postive wire or a colored stripe indicates the positive side.

That noise you are talking about is the servo trying to center itself, I believe?. If you where to lift the front end does the noise stop?

Sorry for asking stuff you already stated. When I went to the page It didn't load anything except for the picture and what you said before the picture.

Thanks

I have never used them but I see them on Ebay all the time. They usually go for $35.00 to $40.00 a set.

Buster, let us know when you get in the new shock pistons and I'll get some new O rings at the same time.

Thanks. I found a website that had a ton of options for the T1 that I have never heard of. I will find it after dinner and post some of the stuff they have. I know they are out of the UK but had some sweet options. Buster should be able to get them. I know he had the new Pistons and Shafts listed and also had different Steering blocks with Accermans Settings on it. It is not the sterring block but the actual Left and Right Steering Arms.
