    Your servo saver may be getting pretty worn out.. That would cause the servo saver to start acting before it can put enough force on the servo to make it turn.

    The only direct upgrade I have seen, that is still available, for the 3906 is the Robinson Racing one. Amain sell them as well as some other places. I was going to try one but instead just opted for...

    I ran two servos for a while and in the end one died.. I upgraded to a single hitec servo and it's so much better.. My advice is just go straight to a better servo and be done with it.

    I think he means 100wt not 100k (100,000). The shocks wouldn't even move with 100k wt oil in them. I run 90wt with HR bodies, black and tan springs. It's better than stock but not as good as I would...

    They are pretty cheap to buy new on ebay if you don't have the best skills with opening it up and replacing it. Would be a lot easier to replace it as a whole as well.

    Why not just go with the brushless system? The 775 will be massive in a MERV and just make it too top heavy.. The brushless would be faster too.
