We're running the Savox 1258 TG in all of Cush's rigs with great result. Smooth, fast, plenty of torque, and reasonably priced. Pretty sure you can get one for under $80. Tresrey USA is now stocking them are prices are right in line with other major sources.

You could always check out the Classified section. I've had great luck with the Orion and Futaba servos that I've purchased there.

That said, the Savox servos get the job done.

Savox servos are really nice servos for the price. The 1258 or 1257 both are really nice for this car.

Savox servos are the best bang for the buck, but they are not the best servos. They draw more power than most other servos which can cause issues with some radio systems, they are noisy, and they are orange!

I have been using the BLS series servos from futaba for the last couple years, and wouldn't run anything else. They are expensive, but what i can't stress enough is, if there is one place on the car where you DONT want to skimp, it's your steering servo.

Iv driven the upper end savox back to back against my bls351, and the bls351 is much better.

I guess the main thing I wanted to take away from this is that I can use a full size servo. I don't have to stick with a low profile version.

yes, full size servo's can be used, even in mid motor configuration.

Just finished the initial assembly of my kit, gotta paint the body and install the electroics. Where are you guys at for a 17.5 motor for gearing. I only have the stock spur for now. I plan on ordering the RW spurs soon. Thanks in advance guys.

Unless you plan to run a full boost setup on it I would not even attempt to run a 17.5 with the stock spur. Get an RW 69 tooth with a 30 (referenced from the NovaGear app) for blinky 17.5. I have always found the app to be a good way of getting a solid starting point for no timing gearing. As always, check your temps and adjust accordingly.

I was also wondering about gearing with a 17.5 motor but got a RW 75 tooth spur. What would be a good starting point?

32-33. Not sure it will fit- Cush runs an 8.5 so the only gears we have run are an 81 and the stock 87.
