    as im looking at doing a 1/16 build and ive read that the stock servo is a bit slow, what servo will be suitable?

    Hitec 85MG or a Bluebird 390DMS.
    The Hitec needs a different servo horn and on the Bluebird fits the stock one.

    I think it is DMH instead of DMS. My bad.

    If you go with the 390...

    BlueBird 390 Set Up

    All stock hardware is used.
    NONE of the hardware included is needed!


    There are tab braces that do not allow the servo guard to sit flush.
    IT IS OPTIONAL TO REMOVE THEM.
    I have done this both ways without any adverse reactions.
    Here is a picture of the braces:

    (thanks goes to danielhr77 for the picture)
    The tab braces create a small gap between the chassis and the servo guard.

    Here is how it plugs in:



    You will also need to reverse the servo direction.
    These are the steps for LINK and TQi radios:

    Hold MENU for 3 seconds
    Green Blinks

    Press MENU
    2 Green Blinks

    Press SET
    Green Blinks

    Press SET
    Red Blinks

    Press SET
    8 Green Blinks

    Hold MENU
    Setup Complete
    Whatever it is I just said... I could be wrong.

    Jimmie, your still the man!!!! Try HPI Super Radials, lots or grip and they'll fit on stock rims.
