Default Hey everyone.

Good to be back. I haven't been on in while. RC cars started to piss me off. I still need a good servo. The one I bought burned out the same day I got it. So, let me know of one. Thanks everyone.

Hitec 7955TG or if you want a real-high end servo, get the Jr Z9100HVT.

What car do you have? If a 1/8 buggy or truggy, get the Hitec 7955TG for steering. Buy quality, buy once.

you cant go wrong with jr. but with servos its a pissing match like ford v chevy.

everyone will have there own story buy heres mine....


i help my dad with his cars(8b 8t), maintly set ups and servos settings. we started racing the same day(9/20/08) and from day one i set the epa and all that good stuff on all our cars. he bought hitec and i bought jr. from day 1 ive blown one jr 8800(my fault, left car on, radio was off. fail safe set, ) and hes blown like 3 hi tech servos. His last one he burnt out he finally made the move to jr and has yet to burn one out.

but like i said, its a pissing match. i provided a true story. everyone else will say go with XXX brand just because

I have had the opposite experience with the JR servos. I have had 4 or 5 9100t/s go in the last few months. JR replaced them of course but thats a lot of servos. EPS set and everything.

I've been running a Hitec 985mg servo for steering in my buggy lately. Very nice servo for the price - about 75 bucks on EBay.
