One more question:

I'm building a T2 and electronics for a kid at my track. With an unlimited budget, what parts and hopups should I get for racing on asphalt in stock/19turn?

thanks
chad

How skilled is the kid?

I love my JR Z9000S servo, best of the best as far as I know. Make sure to pick him up a battery strap, Novak GTX, I don't know any 19T motors so Im no help there.

I was going to get him some rcprofessor 19t and stock motors. Does the battery strap tweak the chassis at all? I use a 9000s in my mod truck and love it. Unless somone knows of a better servo, that's what I was probably going to order.

His skill is about medium range right now. I can keep it off the pipes, but doesn't run smooth and clean lines.

The JRSZ9000S looks like the bomb, thinking I should get one myself

Whats the best price anyone has found on them?

JR 9000S is a good servo and great bang for the buck. I run a Airtronics 94360Z and love it, but it's more money.

You will want a small ESC like the LRP QC2 or Novak GTX.

Motors and batteries, anything from br00d and you can't go wrong. The Atlas 19T is pretty hot right now.

Personally, I just bought a Futaba S9550 low profile servo. I just liked the idea that the servo doesn't hang off the end of the chassis as much as a standard servo. It is relatively quick (.11 @ 6.0V) and it has decent torque (I believe somewhere around 80 oz/in). Not a bad price at $79.99 through tower. If you order over $125 you get a $20 discount. Not a bad deal if you ask me!!

Chad if your sticking with JR servosthats a good one, i use a futaba 9402 servo, myself

As for hopups, the Pdub bumber is a good choice, but definatly get him a multi diff. Just about everything else is in the kit, except springs.

As for the battery strap, out of the few i saw have tweak problems most if not all had the strap, most of the guys not having problems used tape. I use tape as does rodney and neither of us have had any tweak issues.

FYI, this was the servo I had for the past couple months. I also bought it for the same reasons, compact servo that fits the T2 well. However I wasn't happy with the performance. The servo had troubles holding center on the track. It also seemed "weak". I upgraded to a Airtronics .07/128oz servo and WOW instant difference. The speed and more importantly the extra torque was VERY noticable on the track. The car holds dead center all the time and doesn't feel like it's stressing in the corners.

I think they are common around $115.
It has the highest speed and torque combo of any servo on the market right now.
.06/128 oz-in.

Recently put one in my T2 and I love it. I though the car was going to overly agresive with the steering with the upgrade, but it wasn't. The car is much smoother, and feels more nimble, and didn't have ANY negative affects.

My recomendation.
