Default V-One RRR or RD Logics Mongoose?

Thinking of getting one between these 2 cars to replace my MTX3 Prospec. I know RRR has the reputation already but people are saying that Mongoose has great handling. Price doesn't matter. Anybody has experience with these cars?

Default Servos

If this question has already been answered, let me know. But what servos work with the mongoose?

Standard servos do not work or modifications have to be made - from what I read at the Mongoose thread.

Sorry I should have clarified. I heard that standard servos do not work for the steering and throttle. I know futaba makes a low profile servo, but i am unsure of the servo #.

yes, standard servos will work with a bit of effort

otherwise, try the futaba 9550. low profile servo. will DEFINITELY fit.

The Mongoose G4 is design to use Sanwa/Airtronics, Futaba and KO-Propo servos... The Servo horns that comes with the kit will fit only those Servos... And if I must say, I would only use those brand of servo's in my car any way... Sure you can use other brands, but the car was design to except those servo's for a reason.. Lower profile, lower CG, better handling... With the other brands, you'll have to mod the car to make things fit... and You really don't want to do that. Now for the question, which car is better??? Both cars are great... and both are more alike then other car on the market right now... You can't go wrong with either... My choice though is the Mongoose G4.

I bought the Mongoose and am very happy with it.

I put HiTec servo's in my car (Digital steering and analog throttle) and no modifications were needed except I used the aluminium servo horn on the steering. The hit comes with various spacers to set the correct clearance for the steering servo.

I use KO's in my goose and their about as tight as you can get. they are big but I use no spacers and put the ball on the front. so you have several examples of how to go about the steering servo on a goose. both cars are similar and both handle well. Horizon stocks Kyosho and RD Logics stocks Mongoose so parts for either are no issue.
