    I wouldnít advise using a 7.4v hump pack on the receiver. They donít like much over 6v before they will fry. You could try making an RX bypass harness and using the 7.4v hump pack to just power the...

    I think he has the 4x4 rustler. I would think something in the 200-300oz range would be perfect. I think that quite a few guys are running the Power HD servos with good results.

    Itís just a different unit of measure. If you go to the servo on Amazon it lists the ounces of torque at about 215-277. This should be plenty for the rustler.

    Gear down not up. And make sure the slipper clutch is tight. You might have to go to a 3s to get enough power. But I would try gearing down and slipper clutch tight first.
