Default servos

Just finishing the f201 and need to buy a servo. My very old JR just bit the dust and I can get a Airtronics 94357 or a KO 2143 quick for this sundays racing. Any comments on fit or performance, problems. ect.

KO PDS2143 is what I run. imo, the best steering servo you can buy.

Cool car KiwiKid!

Hey guys, I just found out that if you use cheesehead screws instead of the countersunk ones for underneath the chassis, you can drive around at night and the car will shoot sparks from underneath when it hits the bumps, just like a real F1 car!

It's not all about batts. It's mainly set-up. If you can set-up your car to corner fast, that is better than the best batts.
