if anyone wants to take advantage of the Savox promo. The Coupon code is "savoxxtreme" . Just type it in where it say's to and the price is automatically changed. My favorite is the SC1251MG and it works great in any touring car where low profile,metal gears and great speed can help ! Have at it !!!

The coupon code for a free t-shirt and free shipping TO FIRST TIME BUYERS is "savoxusa".

Here's an interesting note from Matt Murphy of MurfDogg motors. Seems he's having issues with motors not working, and here's a part of his message:

"So....

.... I called Randy Pike, of Tekin, and explained to him the problem I was having, and asked about the power cap solution, and he told me this:

Basically, certain manufacturers are building servos right now with no regard to the BEC output necessary in todays electric cars. Hall sensors, the sensors in all sensored brushless motors, are powered by the power distributed by the BEC in the receiver. Both Servo's and ESC's sensor capabilities depend on the BEC voltage coming to the ESC thru the receiver. These servos are overloading the BEC output of the radio systems, which is shutting down the ability of the system to read the sensors in the motor. Some of the brands of servo's that are known to cause this issue are SAVOX, ACE, SPEKTRUM, and KO PROPO. The addition of a power capacitor to the BEC port of the receiver can absorb energy created in these voltage spikes, and better maintain the voltage needs of the ESC and sensor assembly.........My conclusion:
Due to the servo manufacturers disregard to electric racers and their system's needs, I suggest all racers look into a Power capacitor setup available form various manufacturers including Spektrum and Novak.

So are you saying that by runing a tekin which comes with a power capacitor we are safe? Or do you mean we would have to run another cap to run the servos on that list? I was just about to order the Savox because it' sems like a good deal, but I won't if it's going to affect my speedo.

He's just saying that you need to be careful what ou run and look at all the equipment ou buy to make sure you can run it in combination. Some combinations will run better than others, but if you use a power capacitor (and a good one at that, i.e. fast) you should be fine. Read the specs though on everything you buy, that's why they give them to you!
