Default Servo

What would you recommend for a steering servo for a team associated sc5m that won't break the bank?

I thought about going Savox but you have to use capacitors to avoid brown outs.

A TS-920 would be perfect: fast, metal case+gears, takes HV, and cheap. I've run them in a SCT410 and D413 with no problem.

7.5-10.5 would be good. I switch between a 10.5 and a 7.5 depending on trac conditions.

Okay good to know. Thanks! Is it worth the extra money to go to the RSX ESC vs the Gen 2? I know the Gen2 can only go to a 8.5T but and the RSX can do all the way down to 2.5T .

I know from experience that the 8.5 limit on the RS gen2 is no joke. I had issues with it even handling that much motor. However, that was in a 4wd buggy. But for what its worth, I only run a 10.5 in my SC5M and its plenty for a medium size indoor clay track. For me I feel like much more motor and it gets hard to drive. With the 10.5 I feel like I'm actually able to use the power that is available, not just babying it around the track to keep the wheels from spinning.

Thanks, I know a lot of the guys at the local track were running 8.5T motors. I can always turn it down as well. Was just curious if the RSX was the better route to go.

With the 8.5 I would say for sure go with the RSX

Anyone have a good starting setup for indoor med-high bite clay? We run JConcepts Dirt Webs in Gold. Only have had the truck for a few weeks and just wanted to see where everyone else is at.
Thanks

Its very hard to beat a Savox 1258. Their warranty service is solid too.
