I just got myself a used Serpent 1/8, and would like to get some servos that are capable to race with the Serpent, and I am looking for FUTABA or Hitec brand....digital or non digital are fine...jsut want to compare those servos and make my choice.

Thanks........

Yo Rookie and fellow NTC3 owner.

I've been using Hi Tec 925 for the steering and a 625 for throttle. It's ok but I'm going to look for a hi torque servo fast enough for steering. I think Ko Propo has an awesome but don't know the model number. Hi tec 925 will get you by. I do not suggest getting a digital one since it'll eat up the batts. Good luck on the Serpent. What kind is it?

Hell yeah, sup Revzalot.....stilll have my FTNTC3 and will STILL using it this coming season.....yes, I did get myself a used Serpent NT (yeah, i know....oldie) just don't feel like to spend $600 for a 950R or $450 for a used one when 1/8th is NOT really that hot here in the mid-west.....but with my new ZX-21 powerpack, I will need a 1/8th car to run it....so I picked the 3rd best 1/8th from the Serpent 1/8th list......

At least. NT is still able to race against those 950 or 950R or Evolva or MRX4 (at least I can hang around)..........before, I was almost got myself a VETEQ....that, I am afriad the car will be for SHOW only.........LOL.

Thanks for the info about the servos...I will probably take the throttle servo advise from you, but I will stick with FUTABA for steering....

Any idea...?

I am a Serpent dealer.......so getting the ZX 21 and 12 is a must..............LOL
With 24" of snow in Chicago.....my 21 and 12 are not going to be FIRED up untill April....however, I think those engines will not last too long in my shop cause their PRICE are insanely low and reasonable.

My mechanic will open up the ZX-21 and investigate the possibility of hand MODIFICATION of the Zx-21, but from the Serpent website pictures, he said that ZX-21 is a BARGAIN for 21 engine, just need a real ROAD TEST to verify the engine.

If this engine is not that good....I do not believe SERPENT will carry that....do you think Michael Salven will run a cheapa$$ not too good quality engine on the big time nitro race and expect to WIN...? I don't think so....

P.S....I never thought I will have the time, effort or knowledge to handle 1/8th, but for this ZX-21, I've myself a used Vector NT just to run this engine against those Evolva and 905R.
