Power Duo – end of servo trouble?

Posted in (E-)REV-O-RANGE on 12/03/2009 by oxoxoxo

Last week I almost lost my car. Run-away at full speed facing a concrete wall. Luckily the steering still worked (throttle/brake servo just died) and I could avoid the final impact by less than 10 inches. After a big turn at full speed (phaltlines, no flip over) I had to stop a running Revo at almost full speed with my foot, which actually worked with no major injuries wheresoever.

Now I am changing both servos to coreless digital ultra torque and ultra speed from HiTec (with HighResponse). Hopefully this powerduo will last and be reliable at 5.5ms!

Broke in the second pullstart TRX 3.3 and it went… OK. At some time of the break-in process my temp gun showed something around 400° F… just hope it’s off a bit *shrugs*
