Default Throttle problem with losi 8ight

Here's my problem. After I run two or three tanks thru my buggy, the throttle servo stops working. This has happened about four times now. I used JRPSZ590 Z590M Torque Race Servo: Metal Gear the first two times, and then I switched to the 650's the last two times. I'm stuck in Iraq right now, and there aren't any hobby shops here(I looked). Any suggestions? Thanks

set the epa on the brakes correctly. im willing to bet when braking, the servo is trying to plull farther than it mechanically can pull the brake assembly, thus overstraining and overheating the servo and shutting them down, or burning them out.

keep in mind the stock 270 servo is only 43 in/oz of torque. the 590 is better at 88, and the 650 better yet at 130ish. But none of them are good if your overstraining the servo.

Be sure to adjust the epa on the brake so its pulling just far enough to fully engauge them.

on my jammin with the Z650MG on Trt/Brake and my React, im thinking i have my brake epa set just over 40. like 46 or 47. but i also have the antilock brake feature setup on the React and Man that is the Cats Meow. i cna lock them up at full application but up to 80% its pulses the brakes and i have great control coming hot into the corners with it.
