Hi guys.

I will be ordering a servo pretty soon for my TC4 (which i get in 5 days..woohoooo ).

Anyway, ive been looking at a couple high speed servos....the servos i had in mind was the futaba s9254 and the KO 2343. What i would like to know is is the 9254 suitable for cars? (i noticed on rc-mushroom it said its a servo for gyros )

Ive had KO servos in the past and they are brilliant but one just packed up on me (2143) so this had made me a little weiry about KO servos.

If you guys have any other recomendations on servos ($100 max), high speed (so below 0.10 if possible) and suitable for a TC4 then let me know.

Thanks in advance
Matt
The KO 2343 is what I use and it"s awesome! ...have yet to have any problems with the KO stuff.... but almost any High End servo will be great!!

Hey guys...

Finally ran my TC4 today. I think I had it geared a little low for stock but it ran good. I didnt have any higher pinions and the hobbyshop was closed so I made do with what I had....

I am going to get some steel diffs so I can run 19t and mod with no worries. To be honest the plastic diffs worked great after the had a few runs on them. Very smooth and you cant even really hear my car going around the track. Silent for sure... and the best thing is I broke nada.. I got bumped drafted down the back straight buy a guy with a 9x2 but nothing happened... That was really the only place he was faster...

I have the HD front oneway already but honestly had no reason to put it in the car right now.

Great job and this car is a keepr for sure.

Ran the TC4 again this week and BY FAR, the best car I've had yet. I know a lot of people have said how bad this car is...

The car was very free today (High Bite Carpet). Had my best laps yet, I'd been running low 9's for the last 2 weeks. Today I hit 2 8.8's and a few 8.9's. Qualified 3rd in the A then took the win. Car was smooth, consistent and FAST!

I run a JR Z4750 and really like it .12 at 6 volts. For more speed the Z8800S might be a good choice .10 at 6 volts. A couple more options for you to consider.

thanks guys, do you know if there is an advantage in using the 2363 over the 2343?


is the 9254 actually suitable for cars?

My local hobby shop cannot order spools for this car.

The part number is 1703 correct?

Horizon, Great Planes, HRP - none of them have this part number listed. They have the 1704 spool for the gas car.

The NTC3 diffs are much wider than the electric diffs.
