    RE: Redcat Monsoon Thread

    does anyone know if the ofna hub extensions will work on the monsoon xp. i bought some axial wheels, but they are a different offset than the monsoon stock wheels. when i look at the pictures of the hub extensions on the internet, i don't see how the will stay on.

    thanks for any info.

    RE: Redcat Monsoon Thread

    thanks for the quick reply! do you use the 15mm or the 30mm? i'm thinking about getting the 30mm because i think (not sure) with the 15mm, there will still be some rubbing when turned fully left or right.

    I think you have to drill out the hole that the pin goes in the hubs, correct? I had to do that with mine and I think they were ofna extensions. The pin on the redcat was just a tad bigger.

    RE: Redcats Monsoon Thread

    are you running a nimh pack? if you aren't that will cause the servo to be sluggish as the alkaline packs dont have enough juice to power them. also since you picked up two check to see if the other one does the same thing, glad to see that you like the servos and also that the pics of the mammoth bumper helped

    You are correct. I DID have to drill out the OFNA extenders. I used a 2.8mm drill bit (you can get it from the McMaster-Carr catalog for about $2)
    Lol...I have performed So MANY mods to this truck that I am beginning to lose track of them all.

    I use the 30mm extenders.

    RE: Redcats Monsoon Thread

    i would stay away from those cheap servos. go with a name brand, such as, hitec, futaba, jr., etc. remember you get what you pay for. i use hitec and jr. you can usually pick up the jr''s pretty cheap on ebay.

    RE: Redcats Monsoon Thread

    you got to remember that people on ebay probably have used them and killed them. i'd stay away from ebay unless its from a seller with a store and the product is new in box.

    RE: Redcats Monsoon Thread

    well should i keep using the servos that work? they do work very good! i think maybe i just have a lesson to learn from this. or do you think it would be an unwelcomed risk to keep using the ones that do work? THANKS AGAIN!

    mrcraig.....
    I have used the MG995 servos and they were OK for bashing around. ( I wouldnt depend on them for Racing though)
    I bought 4 of them from an EBay STORE in Australia( I wouldnt buy them from an individual on ebay though, especially if they were used...).......... They all worked fine for me.

    For $35 you can get brand new Hitec HS-645MG servos....They are good for 1/8 cars and dont cost too much.

    RE: Redcats Monsoon Thread

    the ones that work should be fine i wouldnt worry about them till they go, like i said i have one on the monsoon and just switched to using one on my lst2 they work great just make sure you dont get them used again, and i'd be sending the ones that didnt work back if they have a return policy.

    RE: Redcats Monsoon Thread

    If you are going to get a cheaper servo I think you should get the MG996R. It is better than the MG995 and is more accurate and durable from what I've heard. [link]http://www.hobbycity.com/hobbycity/store/uh_viewitem.asp?idproduct=6221[/link] I'm pretty sure it's the same price as the MG995!
