the orion has been bullet proof, its fast, waterproof, strong and despite the best attempts of my lil girl..... its still working LOL

no idea what they cost in the USA, here they are 80GBP.
Savox 1258tg is a standard size servo.

That's interesting because Savox is the OEM for Team Orion servos.

I'd replace them both again and the input shaft/gear. They get worn and eat the idlers. Make sure when u reassemble it's like a clean room in that gear box

To each is own, I've run a Savox 2151 Black in my B5m and now my B6 with no servo saver and have had zero issues with it. I even broke the stock B6 servo horn with no damage to the servo. I Do have full size servos 1258tg in my Yz4 and a 1257tg in my SC5m though

Decided to put a fan in my car, i saw the custom made chassis braces with cut out but they all said need to trim most bodies so I made this simple mount myself. When the arm is fully up its not even close to hitting, I used a 25mm yeah racing tornado fan, that little bastard BLows. lol..

I'm curious why you would avoid a low profile servo? I recently installed one in mind but have yet to run it.

Thanks

Low profile servos usually achieve the smaller form factor by going with thinner gears. Some people have had issues with them stripping more readily than full size servos.

No problems running a low profile(Futuba S9551) in my B4 or B5M.

Running a low profile cheap solar d770 servo in mine for almost a year without issue. I also run all the stock plastic bellcranks as well as the kit servo horn so that helps buffer out maybe some higher stresses. I actually just stripped the servo horn a week ago and got two plastic ones from my pit neighbor. I run into a lot of pipes too.

For 2wd buggy a lot of people are running lp savox's without issues. I wouldn't worry.

Same here, I run nothing but low profile servos in ALL of my cars(2 touring cars, a Tamiya mini, & two buggies(both Futaba 9550/9551's & Savox equivalents), & while I've lost a couple of my old Futabas from some kind of electronic problems, the Savox servos have been running just fine so far. I don't see a problem, as long as you're not constantly pinballing off the walls(& in that case, NOTHING will be able to withstand that for very long)....

Just measured using calipers on the threaded part it reads 2.8 on solid 3.0 so my guess is 3.0. But for sure not 4.0
