Default Got my REVO 3.3 today..

HEy all,
I got my revo today and it has a bad steering servo.THe bad servo will stick in place and it will also keep going back and forth like its getting interference but its only the 1 steering servo moving.I called them and they are sending me a new 1.

I only got to run 3 tanks thru it since it wouldnt turn good but it seems to run nice even tho I havent opened it up yet.Im used to my duratrax ST Nitro that I got for a starter to get me into nitro so I just promoted my self to the next level.

Later..

shark the revo can be used wiht one steerign servo, just swign teh steering arm form the servo to the center and attatch there, so your one servo will handle steering until your replacement arrives.. or go a step up and get 2 upgraded servos for steering and sell the 2055s. youll be glad you did.

Im going to see if I can find 2 new HT metal servos for it like you said but Im having a hard time finding them.It says the truck comes with a HT servo but its not metal so Im a little confused....

For steering on the Revo use a single servo, a strong single servo.

I just went up to my LHS and they only had 1 JR HT metal gear in stock so I think I will try the 1 servo way.Is 1 servo really better?Why is there 2 on there now.
Im off to the garage now to try to make this thing work.

Thx...

Well I found out the hard way that this REVO uses FUTABA servos and not JR...
So I added 2 new S3305.
