BlueBird Servos

Anybody have experience with either of the bluebird servos listed here. Specs look very promising and I’m intrigued by the helical cut gears of the first one.
for 1/8 Crawler Off-road Monster #BLS-H50B, ,(BLS-H50B) by Blue Bird Full Aluminum Helical Brushless Digital Servo
Or
for 1/10 Offroad RC #BLS-42A, ,(BLS-42A) by Blue Bird Full Aluminum Titanium Gears High Voltage Digital Brushless Servo

I’ve narrowed my search down to these 2. I was waiting for the promodler 420v4 to come back in stock but they are hard to come by.

Drew Butcher wins at Tasmanian State Championships

See: XRAY

The Performance RC 2017 1/8 Tasmanian State Titles seen some very close and consistent racing last weekend. in 1/8 E-Buggy, despite a few hiccups in the first two qualifying, XRAY driver Drew Butcher managed to take the overall TQ and pole position for the finals. In the first final Butcher managed 1st place with Steven Madziara having a little crash on the last corner of the last lap. In the second final Daniel Lokos takes the win in style with some extremely consistent racing from Butcher. Pressure began to rise between Lokos and Butcher, both having equal points with a 1st and a 2nd each. Butcher has very clean start and building a 7 second gap on the first lap, and then just kept it safe for the remainder of the race knowing that everyone else would be pushing that bit harder to try and catch up. Lokos finished in second and Madziara in third.

Clamp-On Aluminium Fan Mount from Exotek

Exo_fan_Mount_5 copy

Special clamp on alloy fan mount for today’s buggies and sedans. The included mounting bracket has multi-mount features that allows the fan to be angled or parallel with the motor can. Lightweight, secure and just what you needed to easily mount a fan in tight spaces!

The angled design allows easy mounting of fans in 2wd buggies and trucks with ‘lay down’ style gearboxes. And for sedans the secure bracket holds the fan at a distance from the armature to avoid the magnetic fields of the motor disrupting the fans motor (too close and the fan does not operate at full rpm’s).

The mount can also mount the fan at the end bell in cramped 4wd buggies by using camber shims for spacing (not included- see picture).

The extra modular design means with a few adjustments you can mount a fan securely in just about any 1/10 car or truck.

Available in Blue, Black and Orange
