The 2143 is what all my cars have in them. I was having an old guy moment.

They are the same specs as the 2173 except they are digital,I would assume they would be awesome for the steering !

They work very good and I can vouch for the fact that they are as tough as they get. Their a solid investment.

ko servos can be used with my jr xr2 radio and receiver right?

And if so, will it come with the necessary plug?

The KO servos come with Futaba J style plugs. If they do not fit into the JR receiver, just cut off the additional plastic tab on the side of the plug connector.

On a side note somone was talking about radios the other day. Being in the market for a new radio I purchased one of the new helios radios. This thing is way cool cant wait to use it next year. The coolest thing is it comes with a three channel reciever. (somwhere to plug the personal transponder in without jacking with a y connector) Big smile

And it has a switch under the module to allow it to work with previous versions of ko recievers. Another big smile

The KO servos are definately the best for Nitro racing especially with the current trend in monster power engines. I never use anything but them unless I really have to.

Motorman,

will you be going to the Winternats. Didnt see your name on the entry list yet.

Which is the new jr, model number? So i can check it out.
either the JR-Z590M or the JR-Z650M

both of those are more than enough to turn a 200mm TC

Yeah, that's a nice feature. A lot of people already have their older receivers and it's nice to know that they will work with new Helios.

Not going to the winternats this year. They streched it a full week and that is alot of vacation to take to race a single entry for me. The sedan nationals is an hour from my house this year so that will suck up a week, the midwest series we usually run over the summer sucks up another week(6 races), and I plan to hit the Texas biggie and a California race this year so that will eat another. Thats three weeks plus a week in the carribean with the wife =4, and I may opt to attend the on road fuel nationals so next years vacation is planned. 5 weeks toasted!

How do they say 2 many races to little time. Maybe I can get down georgia way once this year to. Maybe get down to see the Red five and Stefan but I figure they'll be up for the sedan nats in Toledo anyway.

anyway last time I went to FT Myers I came home all jacked up to go racing again only to have to park my stuff on the shelf for another three months before our season started. That was a major ball drag. I was seriously buggin for a couple months.
