okay no big deal. futaba also offers a cheaper brushless servo american dollar is like 100.00 it is the bls451 not the bls351. also check into the ACE1313 another good servo I think around the 80.00 american price....hope this helps

Had a look at the ace servo's the cheaper of the 3 were in the 50-60 range.. which is nice, But comparing them to the Savox.. there Not a good.. heavier, less tourque and slower. But then again, I cant find much feedback on the savox servo's. Couldnt find a UK place that sells the better one?

Yea, Becasue I spent nothing on my Hyper 8.5 . I know, that.. But I can get the Savox servo's for 50 each. John Hazlewwod, has nothing but praises of them. But I would get them, now but wondering if anyone has tried them, as there lighter and faster than most that have been posted up. I would get the 125 ones.. but I cant afford too. Im on a student.. budget... So, if your willing to help please do.. but if I cant spend 125 on 1 servo.. then I cant..thank you

its called saving for a week or 2 so you actually get a product you want....why bother with some no name servo that no one on here even knows.......just cuz some b00b thinks they are the best since sliced break....you have 10X the guys telling you the opposite.

Yea, I would ask for them for my birthday in feb.. but They are very exspensive. Im sure its, ok for some of you will probally nicley paid jobs. But for me being a student it is tough. And that b00b is the number 1 British Driver? Never heard of him?
http://rcspecial.com/news/?s=savox

John Hazlewood is running them, Elliot Boots is too and David Crompton to name a few are running Savox Servo's. You may not of heard of them being British drivers..

As stated before, Im willing to spend 60 max on 1 servo.. not 125 as I cannot afford it.

Thank you, I will have a look at modelsport..

The best servos to get and they are a great price are ace servos

Don't go cheap with the steering servo in 1/8 scale, you'll end up burning them up or breaking them. In the end it'll end up costing you more, buy the best metal gear or Ti gear servo you can afford, or look for a used Hitec 5955 or 7955, often times they can be had for quite cheap and will last through heaps of abuse.

I use a Hitec 7955Tg for steering and a Futaba S9351 for throttle.
They work great.
