Most car engines have a have a small exhaust tube with a rubber for connecting the manifold with a spring.

I think you have to take a look at plain engines or the old cheap OSMAX (clones).

If you can tell what ithe plan is, maybe we can work it out with a other engine...

Never had any problems with those springs and I run gas cars for over 13 years by now....

Hitec Servo's should not burn out that fast. Is there something heavy goin in your steering or is the servo blocked by the end stops in your steer ?

Ik think you have to contact Hitec about it, I believe www.hitecrc.com

My avatar is a English/Australian artist named Holly Vallance, just take a search on the web for her

I had a hitec in my 8th scale buggy for 2 years, it has since been in a clod for another year. I have 2 in my nmt, one in my ntc3 etc etc. I have never had a problem with hitec. they don't like 6 cel rcvr packs so if you did that I would also check ut the rcvr cuz they fry with 6 cels too (no bec without an esc) I learned the hard way on this one, can you say runaway 8th scale?

I've heard bad things about the hitec digital line. They burn up quick unless you have the programmer to set them up correctly. I have heard of the same thing happening to many other people. Best bet is just to stick with the regular ones. They work great!

I hate the mani springs too. But they aren't too bad if you use needle nose pliers.

the reciever works perfectly, because the other servo still works(after i put the wires back in the connector that is) and its a digital metal geared servo its like 5625 or something like that
