Default V-one-S Servos

Guys, i have just purchased a v-one-s and obviously need servos. If i just get some standard ball bearing types will these be adequate for racing or does it require pretty powerful servos?

Also, with the green oil supplied in the kit, is this adequate for the diff or does it have other purposes? I have a very small amount of Mugen stuff left from older cars which is probably off by now, but not enough to fill both diffs? Any suggestions...

Thanx

It depends on what brand of radio gear that you are running but you don't need powerful servos you can use standard servos & you can buy the ball bearing for your hobby shop and put them in your self. That what I did to my servos I am running JR 577 servos.

To begin with, you can use standard servos, but it will be good to upgrade the steering servo later on, at least have them all in metal gear. I sugguest you go out and buy brand name shock and diff oils, instead of using something that is very old or your have no idea what weight it is.

the oil supplied with the car is 40Wt shock oil

it is good for starters, a lot of people then just upgrade to 50wt in the rear later on, but im still running stock.

the diffs do not have oil, but the manual says use either grease or oil.

oil is better cause u can set the diff consistently after each rebuild.

but im still using grease.
diff oil y pay 20$ for 50ml?

I'd get the best servos you can get. The torque for the steering servo should be rated around 80 oz/in(at 6V) and the throttle only needs around 60. The speed should be around .15 or lower, but not too fast.

That is just what I think is around ideal for a touring car.
