    melted steering servos

    Wondering if someone has had this issue before??? I have an E revo. Burnt out two speed controllers within a month. The hobby shop suggested an upgraded 5xl controller instead of the stock 2.5 due to my dual batteries and 550 Titan. OK. I can understand that. However... I have melted two steering servos in 5minutes. Could this be a coincidence OR is something with the new controller causing this to happen. Battery voltage fully charged is 7.8volts.

    The first time I ran parallel NiMh in my slash, the steering servo wire bundle heated up enough to turn brown.

    Hey I think you are in the wrong Thread?! At this place we talk about the minis

    I think you will find some good answers in the E Revo Area.

    Stock servos are a weak area... I suggest upgrading to one of the popular 3:
    Blue Bird 390
    HiTec 5085
    Corona ?? -- sorry, don't remember that part number.


    Another thing that concerns me is your fully charged battery voltage... it should be closer to 9 volts and not 8. This tells me either your charger is not peaking correctly or the battery is on its way out.
    Whatever it is I just said... I could be wrong.
