Hello all,

Servos, either KO PROPO (best) or Protek Black Label (save a little $$$).

currently using the Tekin T-250 for steering and throttle and have been happy with it. Protek also has some nice servos, buddy of mine really like the 155 model I believe its called.

yes I run a Protek Lipo receiver pack with no issues. Both servos mentioned are HV servos:

KST Servos are what I use. Plenty of speed and torque for the classes I race, including 1/8 scale. Here is a link to where you can buy them(Directly from KST): https://www.kstsz.com

Tell 'em I sent you!
