Thumbs up Futab Fasst Issue..

Futaba Fasst Issues.

If your Fasst System is disconnecting often, here are a few things you can try.

1 Don't run Li-po's (bummer but yes it works)
2 Turn the receiver on its side inside the radio box. (the connect button gets depress on impact sometimes)
3 Don't wrap your receiver in foam, it traps the heat in (use a little of that memory foam in the radio box to hold the receiver still, while leaving an air gap for cooling)
4 Use electrical tape to secure your connections (After everything is plugged into your receiver, put one layer of electrical tape around the plug end of the receiver to hold the connections in place.

I have done all of these, and have had not a glitch nor disconnect for almost a half gallon. It might be worth a try.

I dont run lipo's anymore, I dont use foam as I servo taped the reciever but my reciever is flat. The button is pretty soft so maybe it is activating from the bumps.

Will try that too.

Roughly when are the hop up parts going to be available , like the steering ackerman and the suspension arm holders . I found the rear arm holder is grinding down really quick The rest of the car is fantastic but that light thin ackerman plate makes me think that could be a weak point after some good run time , mainly where the steering screws go through .

I dont think I can go back to KO, CS sucks compared to other brands. Actually I am now 100% sure it has nothing to do with the 808. We had a 3 people with the same problem tonight.

Hey guys, just getting into the 1/8 Nitro racing, and got a 808. It went together smoothly and I am now putting all the elctronics in it. Is it best to put foam all around the reciever in the box? Or do you usually just servo tape it to the bottom and leave it as is? I am coming from electric, so never had to use a battery box before.

Any advice is greatly appreciated!!

Not sure what reciever or battery you are using. I use the protec lipo, any stick pack fits good. I use the original Spectrum reciever. Lots of room in the reciver box so I use about 4 layers of foam servo tape, then pack around it w/ small pieces of foam. I hate to see guys reciever that are just bouncin around in their reciever box.

Got a chance to drive the 808 lastnight and must say, It was impressive for sure!! Incredibly stable and jumps very well , only thing I did notice was coasting into a tight turn(I like to coast through and roll on rather than brake and accelerate,)the 808 would push a little more than I like, but when I tapped the binders and got into the throttle a bit earlier it would rotate very nicely. though not the best for milage ,it did lay down some serious fast lap times.
If I had a second choice of car it would definately be the 808! It is a WAY better ride than the Lousi!

I run the FASST system in my 8ight "pretty much the same freeking buggy" and I use a Li-po battery and have no issues at all. I don't have my regulator in with the reciever tho so that might make a difference. I mount the regulator in the hump pack cover attached to the top on the inside. Hope this helps. Also I found the the regulator plugs are crap and tend to glitch on most regulators, replace them with Dean's micro plugs for glitch free operation.
