I drove with a standard Futaba 3003 on my steering for over a year! That's a $10 servo. And I was still kicking Fish's ass all over the track! (well, not really )

I'm trying to get it but I don't have enough money. Not all of us work

Why spend money on 10 lousy servos when I can buy one good one. Besides, if i buy the RRR i'll don't have to buy anything for it, I'm RTR baby

that should give you some info on that servo.

Everybody knows mercedes started skimping on quality in order to make more units but for the same price.
that servo is designed for airplanes/heli, with a 6volt from rx pack might shorten it's life or burn it. get something for car don't wonder into the ground of air plane/heli servos.

Not sure in the UK but in Australia you can use what ever radio gear you want configured however you see fit. You only have to make sure you use a soldered battery pack and of course you don't clash frequencies.

I've never heard of ABS being banned, I don't see why or how you could regulate it.

To help stop throttle brake servos from burning out when they stall on the brake install some fuel line on the linkage. The servos don't seem to be stressed anywhere near as much or get anywhere near as hot.
