Value? Not much to be honest. In theory brushless should use less amps and of course has less/zero wear.

There's nothing wrong with a good coreless servo in my opinion.

press release but no product release date. Looks like they have something for the crawler scene-one of the photos looks like a Wraith.

Hi Randy, just to like to ask if the 1/10 servos are compatible to the Sanwa M12S SSR mode? Or SHR mode be badass already?

thanks in advance.

We're good on SHR but SSR is an actual signal shift that Sanwa uses. If you read the M12s manual SSR is only for their own SGR servos.

Well maybe a teaspoon of salt...

They are built and ready. Unfortunately we had packaging problem and the inserts had to be remade. Seems it is always something unexpected, and often simple, that sneaks up on us

Team drivers testing them are loving them and people are going to be very impressed when they go get their hands on them !

Do you have an ETA on getting them to retailers?

Stormer has the T-120 listed (out of stock of course) for $140. I'm hoping Amain will carry them as well because I have $25 in credit there which will make the price a bit more palatable.

We will be packaging them next week and shipping orders week of Feb 12.

The servos are very fairly priced considering the cost to make them. They are truly are a superior technology with amazing precise, consistent and linear performance. The gears are top shelf and allow the steering to literally coast side to side. Our team drivers that have been testing them are telling us they are simply amazing and did not realize a servo could make a such a difference.

We did not realize just how inconsistent and non linear most servos are until we really dug into testing them. They also tend to overshoot and settle back which in todays high bite offroad carpet tracks can cause some odd car reactions. The effects from heat also surprised us and maybe some of those mistakes late in the race are not really driver error as much as changes in servo response...

We are confident they will speak for themselves once people get their hands on them

So what’s the street price then? are we going get inconsistencies or is better to just order direct?

Warranty?
