Default Back to the drawing board... Purchase advice.

Well I've been out of the scene for a lil' while... And plan on coming back once the racing season starts up again.

Ive pretty much made a list of what I plan to get. I'll be combining some stuff from my previous truck into this build.

Mugen 6T Race Roller. ( Saves me the hassle of building since im still in the moving process and yet have to get my tools up here...

JP Eagle .21 B7T ( Same one I used in my X2 ) with matching Novarossi pipe.

The trusty old DX3R..

Now I need help with the servos. Id prefer to stick to JR, so just the usual 9100 T & S, or are there any other good alternatives now...?

Im still gonna run my custom Energizer 6V packs, until I get my hands on a lipo pack.

As for tyres, a standard set of bow ties until I get her dialed in at the track.

Ill probably be getting the truck somewhere during this month and building it up during April..

Thanks boys...

Grab a pair of Hitec 7955tg's and call it good, won't ever have to buy servos again.

Ey Gus.

Parts support, the two magical words...

To get Jammin parts I have to drive 2+ hours, to get Mugen parts I just go to the track, which is like 20 mins away... Im still gonna run the X2, but not as much.



As for servo's, Im going back to the 8711 & 9100 S.

Im trying to avoid buying online and support the LHS...

from personal experience JR's fail more often then not and are expensive to service and just aren't worth the $$ compared to Hitec.

Dual 7955's and be done with it.
