Default What Throttle SERVO Are You Running

My throttle servo on my Losi shit the bed today and I wanted to see what everyones favorite was. Please feel free to elaborate. I liked my Futaba 9351 until 5 mins to go in the A main today.

For the record I made sure the end points were set and understand the issues with the 8ights Servo Tray.

Current set-up

Losi 8ight B
Spektrum Dx3R
Steering Hitec 5955 Like the servo hate the servo horn screw
Throttle Futaba 9351 (RIP)

Hitec 5995TG. (Both Steering and Throttle)

The same two servos last 2.5 years of hard racing in my last buggy, a 8IGHT.

Ace/Xp DS1313 servo on my 8ight, 8ight-T, CRT X2, and MBX6. IMO one of the best servo for throttle/brake. Fast, powerful and most bang for the buck.

The specs on this servo are:

Transit time: 0.13 sec/deg @ 6V
Torque: 12.5 kg/cm (173.6 oz/in) @ 6V
Weight: 66g (2.328 oz)
Length: 41.8mm
Width: 20.6mm
Height: 39.6mm

I run the 9452 Futaba in both my Losi buggy and truggy. They lasted the whole summer and part of last year. I had two glitching problems because of water, but that was it. Still going strong.

If your budget is open to suggestion, JR Z9100S. FAST, and more than enough torque (180 oz or so IIRC).

I run analog servos on my throttle and digital servos on the steering..For throttle use you can have problems with digital servos..Digital servos dont like to be stalled (like what happens when you hit the brakes) when you stall a digital servo it increases the power to the servo to over come this "stall"..I run a good analog servo (airtronics 94357 or a 94358) and I have never had any problems with them..

I heard from a few, that the "bad boy top of the line" JR servos are the way to go with the Losi 1.0. I fed my Losi 5 servos over 5 months, so I'm probably going to say don't use Hitec TG series servos for throttle. LOL!

I laugh now but back then OMG I was tilted...

Try the JR...

...and yes I had a team Losi driver set up my linkage, lasted one night.
