Default LiPo Receiver

Hey guys, running 2s lipos in mugen buggy/truggy. With savox 1257's all around do they need to be regulated? If they do could you recommend a regulator, Thanks!

You can run without a regulator but it's not "recomended". I say recomended because I have run lipos with both of my buggy and truggy using JR 9100's all year and only broke 1 but dont think it was from over voltage. If you use a regulator, Castle, Losi , Orion and KoPropo make good ones. If you use one, make sure it gets some airflow across it to keep it from shutting off.

You need to use different servos, those savox1257 aren't hv and will fry. Btw are you using them for steering too? If so, you need more torque
