That is very true. We both run the same type of style with little or no brake. I blew a KO servo a while back and for the throttle I was just using a standard Futaba 3003 out of one of my planes till I got it replaced. Didnt notice any big difference in performance and the standard servo is way lighter.

the reasons why throttle servo dies faster then steering servo is that

1/. excessive loading due to the dead loading on the braking servo arm.
2/. excessive vibration from the near end of engine.

Sorry Manticore. I should have mentioned that it was the steering servo that went. Didnt like playing with the boards. I swapped the KO from the throttle to the steering and put the standard in the throttle.

i had problems once with excess vibration but now I rubber mount the steering servo and attach using cable ties. I dont have any problems with dead loading. I have the brakes dialled out completely except for a little at the end of the curve to pass the stationary hold rule. When racing my throttle stick never goes back beyond neutral.

Had to replace a pipe and manifold, a brand new bodyshell just on that day and bent the chassis.

A total of around 300 British Pounds (500US$). Wish I had been driving the Yokomo that day instead of the Serpent. It got worse abuse and still kept going.

Actually, JWF-Franni, my set up is in the ballpark. As I mentioned on sunday I need to work on tunning the engine. Where I usually run the tunning is totally different, I found out the other day that we run the low end on the lean side out here in Camarillo. And the car was over geared on second gear. If I can get those 2 things fixed, I will provably do some more setup work. Thanks anyways.

I want to get the hang of Rev, then I will try KZ, and once I got the hang of KZ it will be CP.

Since you guys brought it up, Im also getting used to running with out brakes. This past sunda I went out for the last qual. after having switched engines and the radio wasnt set right, so I freaked went I didnt have brakes, but it felt faster without them, just let the foams slow you down.

Thanks,

This is from Futaba FAQ section:

What can I do to ensure long life of my digital servos?
The number one concern is tight linkages which have absolutely no binding, stiffness, or friction. Because digital servos are always working to hold in position at full strength, if the servo has a point it has to fight in the linkage it will literally burn itself out 'hunting' to try to hold its position. Slop at the neutral position is a very common problem where a standard servo wouldn't notice it but a digital servo will work very hard to try to hold the rod in position and will drain your batteries more quickly and eventually burn up the motor.

and some other FAQ here
