TLR 22

I recently decided to return to my roots, the type of r/c racing class I had started with when I was 12 years old, offroad electric buggy. In those years it was 4wd, this time it will be 2wd, at least to begin with. The model of choice is the lovely TLR 22, which is an innovative little kit that was a pleasure to assemble.
I still have plenty of things to do before I first drive it but couldn't resist posting pics of the body which I think looks great thanks to the paint job by my friend Nick Floudas.

A700 - Servo Spektrum S6070

I recently changed the servo from Savox to Spektrum S6070. I've always been using KO Propo servos with great success but due to their high cost I dared to change to other makes. Savox was reliable but I think lacked bit of feel and centering back to neutral position was not always precise.
I will soon try the Spektrum low profile servo for which I've been told that it is of great quality and performance and one of the best values on the market.
