Default Servo Horns

Almost have my P8 completed.

What sevo horns is everyone using for the steering sevo and the throttle servo? I am using KO PDS-2413 ICS servos.

Thanks!

we're still running-in engines. Everything seems tight now. From only previous 2 tanks, we can feel the cars handling good - easy to drive. Can't wait to push them harder!

I my opinion, the best box, because of torque is the Kyosho box. It also has a small starter wheel that gets up to the flywheel. I tried a few others, this works best for me. Not to mention, a little birdy told me this is what Josh uses......

I use the Pink Ofna one with the 12V Motor and Battery, the one that the back of the motor sticks out of side. It lines up and work perfectly.

Big congrats to Arno for placing 5th in the A Main at the Paris Memorial in Vegas with his P8.0R. He bumped from the B and drove well to place 5th.

As for me, I had a very good car all weekend, qualifying 2nd, but dropping out of the main while in the lead when my motor flamed out. I'll post a full race report and setup asap.

Congrats to the Motonica team and the Qual 2nd but sad to the flamed motor. It always happened on a final where it matter most

We had our recent fun race and I had the chance to really test the car on race condition. The car just awesome except my hand of coz but sadly my car stop at the final due to faulty lipo batt only after the 1st pit stop. geez

I think most here are going to biased, as we are all campaigning the Motonica.
It is an excellent car, and in my opinion the absolute best out there. I used to run an Evolva, and the Motonica is head and shoulders better. However, I have not run the M3. I would go to your local track and watch both, cars run, ask a lot of questions and see what is right for you. MOTONICA!!
