What's so funny smart azz? There was nothing wrong with the 5955's. The servo works flawlessly and is much cheaper.

LOL I was just saying it has the same specs as a 5955 because it is a 5955. I just thought it was funny how you said it.

Minus the UNBEATABLE warranty....for 10$ its a wise idea to go with the read deal and not a knock off.

The word "knock off" should be eliminated from the RC Dictionary. There are very few original or unique products. That goes for cars, electronics, and definetly engines.

Hey guys,

After reading this thread (i was trying to decide on servo's for a new buggy). I decided to go with the Hitec 7955 as a steering servo.

What do you recommend for a throttle servo, as i dont really want to spend that amount of $$$ on a hight torque servo as a throttle servo. Guess it would be a good idea to go with another Hitec to match the steering servo.

Suggestions welcomed and appreciated.

I use a Hitec 6965, works great for me, the 965MG is lamost the same servo, except it is metal geard (not Karbonite), is .02 seconds slower (not like you'll notice), and is $15 cheaper.

JR makes good servos too bud. I run two JR 8711 servos and have been running them for 3 1/2 year - in my muggy, then my 8T and now in my 8T 2.0. I have NEVER had a problem with them. Yes they are expensive, but for me i'm paying for a piece of mind. When I run - I dont have to worry aobut my servos going out.

I will agree with ACE - they are GOOD servos, but IMO they are not strong enough for Truggies.

Hitecs are GOOD, but I will argue that they are the BEST.

I have had bad experiences with Ace servos, boguth1 about 3 months ago and another about 3 weeks ago, older one (used for steering) just died on me, and it wasn't from an impact, and the internals were still good. Then, lthe next day, the newer servo, which was about 4 tanks old at the time, moved to steering after the older one crapped out, died on me. Tried it 3 days later after getting a new servo, and it worked.

Has worked since but soon as I can afford it I am going to the 7955 or a JR 9100 if I can afford it.

Yea I will buy something other than ACE next time. I had one 1313 die the other day that i used on my throttle. And the 1313 i have on the steering doesnt always go back to center. I got them because of the price, but I wont do that again.

I have seen too many sloppy and burned JR's. And have yet to see a hitec ever get sloppy like that. I have seen JR's soo sloppy that the wheels shake 10 degrees in either direction from center and they were good JR's too. That is rediculous for servos that cost as much as they do.

I concur.....Its hilarious to see the competition's buggy doin the shimmy when they put it down.

TRUE very true - I worked in a LHS for a many of years, and to be honest I have seen servos from every manufactor come back in broken in some shape or fashion, Hitecs are great servos, but I have sent a bunch of those back to the manufactor for repairs too. Same as JR. Like I post awhile ago I use JR8711 and in 3+ years NEVER had a problem with them (ok I had to replace the little plastic gear in one)

But to each is own. like you said "Theres a LOT of people that will argue that they ARE the best!:"
