Guys,

I can only speak as I find and after using a pair of the savox 1258's for the last couple of weeks in my 808 they've preformed faultlessly. VERY fast and enough power for the buggy.

I can only guess anyone the wreaks 3 servo's within 4 tanks needs to check there set-up as something has to be wrong.

I have to agree there most rtr servos will last longer than 4 tanks of fuel.

I have set my servo saver at the most free pos. I even lubricated the servo saver surfaces I could turn my wheels with two fingers.
But I do not care what U think. But remember this post when U have a DNF du to servo failure.

Thats really disheartening. I have been waiting for these servos to become available and now I dint want anything to do with them. I just got tired of the JR, Hitec, Futaba products and was looking forward to some new technology. Oh well I know Hitec has a couple new servos due sometime this year and JR has their high voltage series due late March. Just have to stick with what works.

ROFL your obviously a PRO racer or something. I was only trying to point out no servo breaks as fast as your saying. As Malik said even STD. servo's would last longer.

If you'll take any advise, Oil on the servo saver faces is your ENEMY it'll only attract dirt and bind it up. Check the faces on the parts that have to move when the saver actuates, they should be "like new" any signs of wear and they need replacing.easy test is with the electrics off, hold the servo arm and force the wheels one way or the other and then let go, If the saver assembly doesn't fully center its either very dirty or worn out.

You say the wheels will move with 2 fingers, if thats side to side they should basicly do that if the servo horn is removed under there own weight, If you can do that with the electrics on the saver is far to lose.

anyways hope you get it sorted

OH the servo's are great guys, can't see any point in getting bent outta shape cause one guys got problems, everyone else thinks there great value for money. Christ 3 servo's gone in 4 tanks thats an issue with the buggy for sure.

Someone is allways going to have trouble with something. I am just saying that to say if you want to try something out new well for me I will try it if I want to reguardless of what anyone else says. I find out for myself. Like I said before I really doubt that TEAM ORION would put their name on some bullsh#!.

I was planning on getting them as they are good looking, but I called Orion for warranty info and only a 6 month warranty. Going with Futaba as that is what I can support for in my area. Not saying they're bad or anything just want to have fast service and I know Futaba puts a good product out and has a one year warranty. Live about an hour away from Hobbico doesn't hurt either.

I realy do not want to talk bad about these servo.
One of my race friends run the servo for the first time three week back.
He drove 8 min (one qualifier) and when he was done he took his car and put it one the table. there he noticed something was wrong. After inspection his servo was dead. Stripped the last gear, the one were the servo horn goes on top.
Last week we had a race and 4 guys were running theme I was one of theme.
I stripped the gear after two warmup sessions and half a qualifier. A total of 20 minutes.
2 other guys wer having the same problem.
So yesterday we went out for some practice and we stripped an othere 3 servos. After stripping the first I lubricated the servo saver to se if it was any better. The answer was no. It was also a brand new servo saver top and bottom.
I am by no meens a pro driver but I know what I am talking about.
I think the savox company needs to do something about there last gear.

I could turn the wheels with the power on.

When anyone wants to try them go for it but U have to make sure to take theme apart and seal theme because there are no seals or O rings between the casses.

I have already got the confirmation from the dealer I wil get my money back and he is going to send theme back to Savox.

I realy hope the ones frome Orion are better

Can someone please update on the durability of Orion 1007 and 1409?

Do you think the 1007 have more than enough torque for a T4 truck, even on very high bite tracks?

I am thinking of buying 2 x 1007 later today, so any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Also, does the servo horn has a lot of play at idling position?

Does the servo centers well?
