I had a Red (torque) Radiopost give up on me after about a gallon of on track use on my Serpent GT car. It was on the steering.Their support dept. worked out a swap for a new one through my local hobby shop within a day. No questions asked. I'm happy with the performance, happy with their support but will see how it lasts. It might have been bad luck. I'm giving it another chance based on the performance and support.

Sorry, Let me clarify.
KO has a Rsx "Power" for throttle and Rsx "Response" for steering. This is what I use for my GT. You really do not need the "H.C." hard case model unless you have the extra 30 or so per to burn. Fast and Powerful servos with great support from KOAmerica!!

These GT cars are fast and heavy so a good quality servo is a must. I stripped the gears in a lower quality servo in just a high speed sweeper (no contact) at a race earlier this year. Purchased the Rsx servos and will not look back. I have run KO stuff for a long time in all of my vehicles but in GT I tried a cheaper option because of budget reasons to start with. Now Rsx only.

The Flash Rally is the Nova Flash but with a larger cooling head and a 2 needle carb to cut costs. They are 9 port, high RPM, big power monsters! Awesome midrange with a straight nutty top end pull!

Hey guys, I need a little help on deciding a good battery pack for the reciever and servos. The servos are listed as 6v and the reciever can handle up to 8.4. Should I go NIMH or LIFE @ 6.6v? Also what kind of Mah worth of capacity do i need? Sorry for all the questions,you guys have been a great help thus far! Thanks!

Also, the reciever is the 614FS dual antenna.
