    I've been racing the Slash 4x4 since Traxxas first made them available and I would never build any RC without a servo saver unless you feel like replacing an expensive servo every time you crash! I...

    +1 on those DS servos. They are probably one of the most durable servos out there. Fast too. You might want to upgrade your steering linkage to some aluminum pieces like STRC parts.

    Put 30K diff fluid in the front diff and 5K in the rear and replace the stock servo saver with one from STRC. Another suggestion is switch to a DS1015 servo. I run this setup on my truck and it will...

    You need a strong and fast servo. My favorite is the DS1015. The Savox servos have good specs, but they are power hogs and don't work well at all with the MMP from Castle! In the beginning at least...
