Default HITEC 7955 OR JR9100T

They both spec out pretty equal. Which one would you choose and why?

None of the above.

Futaba digitals for longevity.

I have the 9100t in my 8-t and i like it. It's fast and it has the torque.

Why not include the JR 8711?
403 oz torque
0.15 speed

If just the above 2?

I would say 7955 (the newer version of the famous 5955)

Hitec has great customer service but the JR 3 yr warranty is sure nice!

I haven't tried the brushless yet but the standard digitals are going on a couple seasons now without a failure. Hitecs on the other hand lasted all of 1 race. Maybe I just had a dud but I will never buy another one.

I've got both the 9100t and the 9100s in my buggy..... Awesome servos, great customer service and a 3 year warranty.... Shows the faith that JR have in their product if they are prepared to guarentee it for that long!

My $0.02

I have owned both and have had no problems with either. The 3 year warranty on the JR is great and so is their service....Hitec's service is also great. I'd find the best deal on either one and go with that.....BTW, I have a 9100T for sale

+2 I have one of these and I love it! Buy one and you wont regret it.

I had futaba brushless servos and I got rid of them. I had great luck with JR servos so I always stuck with them till a friend encouraged me to run futaba brushless. I got 2 weekends out of my futaba brushless before I the only plastic gear inside stripped out. Its cheap to replace the gear but who wants to be not finishing races because futaba's top dollar servos have 1 plastic gear.

I myself have just put a JR9100T in the throttle of my 8ight T and it does the job perfectly. It is an amazing servo.

And i might add, if you do have a problem with a JR servo, they customer support is great and I would reccommend them to anyone
