Default servo linked to its own rx pack, any one know how to?

hi all
i thought i would be able to hook the red and black wire from a steering sevo to its own rx pack, as in the rx they are common rails of pos and neg
this is for a 1/5 off road truck the servos are power hogs and need 6 to 8v
i hooked the red and black to a rx pac and sent the white to the rx and it dosn't work what the?
am i missing something

thanks kris

Do you have the negative wires connected between the 2 battery packs ? This needs to happen otherwise the servo signal has no reference.

Yes, you have to have both the black (ground) connected to the receiver as well as the signal lead.
