I don't really use them for the tires unless I run my tires out of the box (64mm) less prong to chucking.

So that is what those stickers are for...
so new tyres break easily without them?

bc i havent noticed lower tyres chuncked as much.

one thing that bothers me is that everytime I hit something I bend my front rims.... =(

After you hit a couple of boards, you'll notice the 180 oz of torque.
When your front end is all messed up, and you're still able to turn.
When your car is toast, but your servos still work.
Would you notice a .05 second difference in servo speed?
Probably not, that's why I'd take the extra 69 oz of torque.

Not breaking………Chunking the tire

Yea, those stickers are for a reason…………..
They are supposed to be placed on the sidewall of the tires for helping in chunking the tire. When the tire is new out of the box it’s 64mm or more and has a large sidewall that is prone to chunk. When you true or cut your tire down to a smaller size it dosnt have the large sidewall that makes it less prone to chunking. Also keeping the car off the walls will help in chunking tires!

Also I heard that Protoform just lost the rights to make the Stratus bodies so this Mazda6 is a very good replacement!!

Here is my Mazda6............
You always have one of the best bodies around, Punisher !

Yup, that was what I observed after running a friend's Mazda 6 on a 710 for a few laps. Pretty neutral body I would say.

Here is a pic of my "mechanical orange" ( the colors now borrowed from you) My bodies are more battle type ( they don't last very long ) But the serpent spirit is very present!
Your car looks awesome!! Can the tires turn with the body that low over the front wheels. I love the way it looks! I'm gunna have to paint my next body up like that.

.05 seconds difference in speed is HUGE as far as I am concerned. I run the KO2143 on everything.

I am surprised that you cannot tell the difference, because I could even tell the difference when changing from the futaba 9402 (.11) to the KO2143 (.08).

I guess my driving skills aren't that good to notice 5 hundredth of a second.
Keep in mind, I never said I compared them in the car.
I was comparing the 2 servos on paper.
Just seeing the differences in specs, I went with the 2344, because I felt that I wouldn't notice a .05 second difference, but I like having the extra torque.
Maybe it was such a huge difference because you are comparing a standard servo (9402) to a digital (2343)

I believe Sweedish (pretty obvious) Serpent driver Per-Ola Hard drives with the Volvo body. Hopefully Julius can comment. I know he mentioned that he uses the Volvo wing on the Stratus 2.1 shell.

I just checked Protoform's website, and they don't have their Volvo body anymore.
Since everyone is either running a Stratus or a Mazda 6, I want to run something different, but with similar performance.

I like the Volvo, because it's sort of a joke with my uncle and cousins because they have this real old Volvo that just won't die.
I just want to know if the Serpent Volvo body handles the similar to a Stratus or Mazda 6 body.
