View Full Version : throttle servo
04-17-2006, 10:30 AM
i was running my jato yesterday and to of the screws that hold the servo in broke the plastic and they dont hold down the servo. Only two of the screws towards the back of the servo do. So when i give it gas, the front end lifts up and the carb only opens to about have way. I can get the carb to open fully if i turn the throttle trim all the way to the right but that messes with the breaks and the idle. Is there ne way i could buy a casing or something for this servo instead of buying a whole new one? Ne help would be great
You can purchase the cases at your LHS. It's been my experience that eventually people get tired of changing cases and just get a different servo such as a Hitec. I don't know why the Traxxas cases are subject to breaking like that, I guess it is the plastic that they use. I went through 6 or 8 of those things on my Nitro Rustler, changing the cases then finally changed servos and never had to do it again. Meanwhile I have a good supply of 2055 servos. Anyone need some?

the hitec servos run around 40 and are compatible with the stock radio system however people tend to upgrade their radio system with the servos, but you dont have to

When I upgraded from the stock radio system (crystals) to an FM MX-3S, it came with a great servo for the throttle that mounted right in place.
I think a radio upgrade to FM is a must, you will only be happier you did.

I had the same problem and used washers that fit the screw and overlapped onto the servo case. It's been about 3 months and there still holding fine.
