This is the nsd rc rs 800 v2, and it has a whopping, 1 100 ounce inches of torque at 16.8 Volt. To put that into perspective, the strongest steering servo that i owned up until this point had 650 ounce inches of torque, and that was maxed out at 7.4 Volt. So this rs800 v2 packs quite a punch and in today’s video we’re going to be unboxing it installing it in my low c lmt and taking it out for a test. So with the servo you get a bunch of stickers which i love to see. I’Ll definitely get these on the lmt. Now diving into the servo, get the case off here. So you get the rs 800 v2. It is a waterproof steering servo. It has stainless steel gears which are insanely strong, so what’s unique about this servo. Is it actually has two wires, so you can directly power it from your battery now i’m new to this style of servo but i’m, pretty sure the black wires will go straight into your receiver, that’ll just plug into channel one which is your steering channel, and then The red and black wires go into this little jst plug, so that’ll allow the servo to be directly powered off the battery. You get the male end of that jst plug just with some wires coming off of it, and you also get a little bag of parts. You get a bunch of different servo horns. One of the servo horns included is aluminum.
It looks like you also get some screws, some other hardware and some little inserts just to get your servo to fit in your truck Music Applause, Music off camera. I soldered on that jst connector that was included to my xt90 plug that’s coming off my esc. Now i can just find that little red and black wire and then just plug that directly in Music we’re out with the lmt the servo’s installed everything’s ready to go. We have some ramps set up in the background and we’re gon na try to get some air off that little snow pile in the parking lot. So i noticed my truck wasn’t steering straight it was pulling off to one side, turns out the servo horn actually bent. I guess that just shows how strong that servo is none of the gears inside stripped Music, Music right, Applausi musicali, Musica, Uh, Musica. I think after another hit, i bent it even more looks like it’s tweaked, slightly back Music, so i didn’t want the video to end. Così, so i installed a new servo horn. This is a clamping servo horn that seems to be made out of higher quality aluminum, even if that’s not the case, it’s actually twice as thick as the last ones. If i bend this, i definitely know that i need to switch to a servo saver rather than a servo horn kind of smells like chocolate out here for some reason. So i think that’ll be the real task, just bicycles, trying those over and over, because that’s immediately.
What got the last servo horn that was a hard hit, let’s check the servo horn. It looks like it’s still straight so feeling confident in this one last one just seemed like it was made out of some super soft and light Music, Alluminio, Musica, quindi sì. So this servo just turns without hesitation this huge monster truck tires. I mean they’re grippy that’s a lot of weight right there, ah it’s pulling to the right again, probably bent it we’ll see. Maybe i spoke too soon yeah, so it’s not bad, but it does look like it might have stripped. I can wiggle the tires back and forth and the servo horn moves on the servo. So i guess i will be moving to a servo saver. Sono. Probably just gon na end up using one of those traxxas slash: two wheel drive servo savers that’s. What i use for my smt 10 Sì. I can’t even turn the truck anymore. So thank you guys for liking, commenting and subscribing.
