Default Perfex servo

Hi guys,

Anyone heard of this brand of servo? i`m using it. a stock. and it`s damaged. have tried to get replacement gears, wasted my money on 1 that doesn`t fit on . just 1 gear slightly bigger than the stock.

Any websites to recommend?

I will not be getting a brand new servo as my budget is very tight.

Cheers guys

I believe that your servo is the Kyosho brand.

Perfex appears to be Kyoshos own brand radio gear. i notice it is in a lot of the latest Kyosho RTR and Mini-Z cars.

might want to contact your local Kyosho dealer with the model number.

I wouldnt do it with a Nitro car.

If it is only 3 teeth. The servo only travels a certain amount. Try putting the gear in so that the chipped teeth are not being used. This sometimes works and might get you by until you can get a new servo.

Too many years racing nitro and seeing what happens to people and belongings when a car is out of control. A current 1:8th is capable of severing a limb if it hits right.

oh yes have heard of cases like that too.

Got 1 more question.

when i tighten my glow plug, i usually use brute fore to tighten it. as if i don`t, there`s be some leaking of fuel.

Is that normal? or do u normally just tighten your glow plug , but not till the extend of REALLY tightening it?

THanks again.

We usually tighten them down really tight like that too. Just need to be careful not to strip the threads in the button as this will help with the leak.

Did you ever find the glow plug gasket? Or are you still running without it?

Perfex is the brand name of OEM electronics Kyosho uses in the Mini-Z and other RTR cars. They are made by KO Propo. I am sure the gear is a standard KO Propo gear used in another of their servos.
