Thanx qwkpony. I'll look into those servo savers.

If you get a good servo then it lasts longer, it its like some ko and futaba srvos that have the plastic gear they are going to break
I did run the battery against the servo a couple times for testing. And our indoor clay track is really blown up right now. Our top 5 or 6 guys have their cars kicked by bumps pretty often as well. Bowties or Calibers are working awesome...LoL. But usually a BK type tire. So with the rough track, yes, sometimes I try to check up and double single instead of triple. This is where I lawn dart it....more than a couple times LoL.

So I'll try the servo saver till we rebuild the track in a couple weeks.

I had to go back to 6-hole pistons cause of the rough track. The 4 holes were too much. But after a smooth rebuild I know 4-hole will be the ticket.
