    I am using a single HS-85MG and that holds up pretty good. It is strong enough. Using 2 always gives the potential problem of fighting each other and gives a bit more stress on the ESC.

    i also am using the hitec 85mg, youll have to mod it a bit to get it installed but its totally doable... plenty powerful and i have yet to break it after a buttload of abuse...
    Traxxas is good, but so are other Manus

    How did you get the arm to set at 90 degrees? I just put in my 85MG and the servo arm won't sit at 90, it's probably at 80. I can get it to drive straight, but I have much more travel in the arm going down than up (so my left turns are pretty sharp and my right turns are slow and loopy).

    set the end points so turning is equal for each way. mine is the same way (80°ish) so thats what i just did to fix the problem
