    Yeah - I've been bitten. Although I haven't gotten into 8S yet, I might as well future-proof myself. Never thought I'd have more than 1 rc truck either.



    Thanks for the offer, OG. I'll...

    Midrange ESC for upgrade to lipo?

    I'm on an upgrade path over the next couple months to move to lipos; my set of NiMh batteries just died, and I don't feel like pouring more money into them. (I'm going to do the same on my emaxx,...

    Impressive.
    I got most of the parts together, similar to your implementation. I hope to work on mine this weekend.

    My Summit had a Hitec servo in it, so the servo arm transferred over to the 7950 without changing.
    My e-maxx, however, had a Traxxas servo in it, and like it was pointed out, it has a different...

    Completed the upgrade to the 7950 tonight - wow - now the wheels actually _turn_! Gotta admit, I was skeptical at first, but I'm sold.

    Pretty impressive compared to the dual servo. I'll...

    ah, great points from all - I wasn't thinking of it that way. Although it's a little more glamorous to get a new ESC/motor, I see the point that I should have a Lipo set up first. Ok, time to start...

    Upgrade to brushless but keep NiMH?

    I don't seem to see many threads where people use NiMH w/ brushless - makes me think there must be a reason...(still new to this)

    I need to spread the cost of upgrades over a couple months. My...

    ah- found the 7950 at my LHS when I returned the Savox - what a fluke.

    Probably won't get time to convert it tomorrow; will likely have to wait until next weekend.
    I might save the 7955 to...

    argh - more reading and I see most are doing the 7950's....maybe I blow them both off and go to 7950. I tend to be in the 'buy once, cry once' category. But my local shop (calif) is out of stock...

    Thanks - that's kinda what I was leaning toward, even though the Savox had the higher torque. Will probably try out the Hitec for the front steering for now and then get a second for the rear...
  11. Single servo steering - Hitec 7955 or Savox 1230?

    Any experience with these two?

    I got the Savox 1230SG on an impulse buy at the LHS for $99, but looked around and seems the feedback on it wasn't so great, but at 500oz, 0.16, it should...

    Can you comment on details about the steering arm connection to the chassis? I've been searching to create a 4ws and your design seems to be pretty solid; but can't see from your pics what you're...
