My 645MG lasted through 4 years of torture

It spent a lot of time plowing through snow, being a submarine, crashing into things... I think one of the reasons there was so many 645s handed in for repair, is because there's a LOT of them out there

For the longest time it was the "budget" crawler servo.

I like the Futaba BL for throttle...but for steering they are nowhere near as durable as the hitecs...We have stripped out several Futaba's already, they still use a nylon gear in the assembly which is a major weak point..the Futaba servos are super smooth and work awesome, but unfortunately the durability just is not there.....

9100t's on all steering. put'em on and never look back. guys trying to put 9100s's on steering have problems. those hitech 79XX are good too. ace servos have issues and futabas are alright but dont see but a few around. You were asking for the best and for that id say these nonregulated jxt servos from jr. like $200 but a killer servo. those new airtronics servos are over 400oz with pretty good speed, prolly last forever.

The big thing about servos is that with steering servo's, you're not really risking anything on it other than your race day or finish. Your throttle servo on the other hand is where you really put your money and trust in. Keep in mind that this is the servo that really controls your vehicle. If you have a 500 dollar motor, would you want to take a chance on a 50 dollar servo to control it? I use futabas, but I'd also trust it to the newer titanium drive servos from Hitec too. The 59xx and 79xx servos are really good ones.

IMO the best throttle servo would be the hitec 7940. I myself have been running futaba s9451's for several years with great success. They are powerful, lightning fast, durable and very smooth(good for ease of throttle return). But again IMO the best would be the 7940. and that way you could run unregulated lipo power without a problem.

If price is a consideration take a look at the Hobbico CS-170...Its a rebadged titanium geard Hitech with 333 ozs. Not bad for $80.
