Nice, seems that Futaba is in the lead

As much as I do parking lot racing, hopefully by next year I should have a competitive car and start going to the permanent track.

well even though your going to be parking lot bashing right now you should get really good servos so you don't have to buy more. The JR servos also come with a three year waranty also

Xray NT1
Novarossi Plus 12-3
DX3R
2x Kopropo 2413 ICS (earlier)
2x Futaba 9551 (now)
Custom made power supply: 5x (earlier), 4x (now) Sanyo AAA 1000 mAh NiMH

Please note further details for choosing servos:

Power consumption - within a 30 minutes race the KO's need about 600 mAh
but the Futaba's 200 mAh only!

Watertightness - the KO's are really excellent in rainy conditions. I never had a short circuit! No experience in rain with the Futaba's until today.

Weight - the 2413 and the 9551 have 45 gramms only.

Durability - no problems with the KO's (1 year / 12 race weekends), no problems with the Futaba's (6 month / 8 race weekends).

That's true - these servos are a new trend in Europe. The price is nice and the company does a good job in developing. I heard they will use O-rings in the housing soon. Also they got a hint to offer a 7,4 V version for lipos.

One of our teamdrivers used the servo's in a full wet condition during two races, no problems at all. An other teamdriver is using the full Watertight version of these servo's.

I did make a small tutorial how to shorten the cables and make the housing more waterproof:
http://www.rc-junkies.com/modules/ne...15117&forum=44

With google translation you can make it readable in another language.

My gear:
- Mugen MRX4-R (with X-specs)
- JP Eagle 9s engine
- Futaba T3VCS radio with Spectrum HRS module
- 2x Savox 1257 servo's
- 5 cell Intelect 1600 receiver pack.

Has somebody tried to use 6 V servos at a 7,4 V lipo without a voltage regulation?

Any experience with voltage regulators (switching off when hot)?

Good or bad experience with small lipos (700 mAh) in 1/10th nitro onroad?

How do you think about a very small servo (15 mm wide, plastik gear, 28 gr) with about 3 kgcm torque for throttle?

Thank you for replying!
