I've used the Harbor Freight one for several years; it's fine, but will eat a battery so I usually take that out if I'm not going to use it for some time.

Weird (?) Traxxas 2056 servo size issue.

I searched on this I swear. I've read a ton of posts regarding servo swaps and didn't see this issue mentioned anywhere.

Our Rustler is apart for service; it got into an argument with a monster...

Haw- this is *exactly* what I was going to say. :)

I'll add that I was kind of surprised at the overall difference in *feel* between the two. The MX-V works fine, but it's way cheap-feeling...

The 'tape' (heat shrink I think) isn't meant to be removed; it protects the thermocouple junction.

Diplomatically put. Others might say MA's claims are ludicrous and that the product is no where near as good as they would have you believe.

Recently I found my AT temp sensor read ~10F lower than my ChinaFreight temp gun. "The hell..." I thought. "I'z a engineer... need data."

I got my 5yo a TT MG4g3, and use it as a buddy truck too. If that's not a positive comment on it's toughness I don't know what is.

I've seen that; how has it been? Much thicker, but I'm reluctant to go with a special pin as I have a 4mm stainless rod that I got for $11 or so to make new pins from very cheaply.
