    Cool, the servo is weak as is the servo saver. I just bought a cheap servo from ebay That cheap it is a clone of a clone, but works very well. the servo saver needs replaced to the kimbrough black gas, #124 i think the number is.
    But the orange esc you have only puts out 5V. You could use a bec to power the servos or upgrade the esc to the blue waterproof evx2 which outputs 6V. Good to see another 3906 on the streets.

    it can be a money pit if you go crazy. I still have too much fun all my parts are used or from a chop shop except for the odd component that had to come from a hobby store.
    What it looks like now. Motor from a used dewalt drill, RPM skids from ebay used. 7, Bulkheads used from ebay but expensive.50+
    diffs from chop shop 11, new carriers and I bar new to make it brushless spec.another 14
    cvd's ebay new at the time was 20 incl shipping.
    waterproof box new.10
    internal gears new.9
    Still got more things to add to it.
    the shocks and esc was already there when i bought it.


    How it was running then, but still working on gearing to get it sweet.

    I dont think the stock esc will be able to handle the 24cells your going to be putting on it. besides that its only rated for 16.8v the new esc with lvc on it. for something like this your going to need something that can handle that much voltage with ability to handle 2 motors the MMM cant take 2 motors not that i know of. Why not go lipo? sorry if you posted that already i only read the first page here.

    I think i may have posted it wrong i am going to run 4 5000mah NiMH 6 cell battery they are 7.2 volts thay will be ran in paralle on each side and when they go in to the esc they get wired into series so it will stay at 14.4 volts at the ecs that is what the ecs is rated for i have the old red ecs
