Right now I have a bls451 on throttle in my buggy, and a 351 on steering, Ended up breaking the main gear on the 351 a couple weeks ago, For the truggy all I have right now are some aluminum heatsink airtronics servos for steering an dthrottle. I'll have to look into that hitec thing, Looks like their quality has improved over the years. I did not used to be a fan, but have heard alot of good things about them lately.

Default My .02 Cents

If you can't wait on the Hitech HV servos to drop in Aug. like I couldn't you can dump $190 on the JR 9100HVt/s. The Hitech ones will be $50 cheaper when they drop, but they won't be fully machined alloy cases. I just had to see what they were all about and don't mind the money spent since this is my only hobby and I'm still new to it so I like to try everything I can get my hands on.

The JR's are Super Steel gears with a Metal 1st gear, so no more twichy problems after a bit of use, and they have a 3 yr warranty, but Horizon has been known to take another 3yrs to get a replacement. LOL j/p but seriously I have heard they have a bad turn around time.

The speed has .06 transit at 222oz and the torque has .12 transit at 480oz!!


I have them both and they are amazing and only about 7g heavier then the 7955's.

I have an 8711 as well and its great too. I have abused it more then any servo I have since I started to learn to drive with it in my buggy, and it doesn't have a twiching problem at all. (Still can't drive either.)

BUT...

The 7955 can handle lipo as well and is only $120, and is IMO a SMOOTHER servo, and you have the best customer service hands down.

All in all its up to you and what your willing to shell out. I just had to spend the money and see what the JR HV's were all about and they are amazing, but save some money (if you want) and get great customer service.

7965 T/B
7955 Steering

You can get both for under $225 if you look in the right places. And they are both tank servo's and the 7965 is super fast (.08) and the 7965 can handle lipo just like the 7955.

I run both JR and Hitech. Both amazing. Hitech better customer service and cheaper, and the servos seem to be a bit smoother. JR has one up on the HV side only because they went with a fully machined alloy case, and the weight difference is just grams.

Bottom line after my long winded thoughts. Go with Hitech's unless you just feel the need to be lavish and say you bought $200 HV servos like I did.

servo's twitching is more related to the top case rounding out as apposed to the gear's slopping out...JR top case's are known for it as well Ace/AE's.

Anyone tried the Hitec HS-7954SH servos? I don't see this one mentioned much.

All Futaba for me, just ordered a new Futaba S9157 Digital (425oz @ .14) for my Losi 8ight T 2.0 I have had too many problems with JR. Two week old 9100s got jitters and I had a 9000t serviced for the same problem. They replaced the top case and gears and that lasted for about two months and now that servo has the jitters.

Can the HSR-5995 TG handle a unregulated lipo?

i have used jr9100's and hitech 7955's and although they are very good I still prefer the ace1015 . I know alot of people have a lot of negative things to say about them but my personal experience is that they just FEEL better then the rest. The servo also seems much faster then the numbers claim, and faster then the competition who claim better numbers. I have stripped some gears in my 1015's but its a cheep fix. otherwise good durability.

"good durability" means jack ShI* in the BIG SHOW at a Regional/National Race when it fail's you in the A-main when you REALLY need it....Ive personally blown up My share of Ace/AE's and $ for $ its not worth it....Hitec is the Answer.

on the Speed factor...i personally thought you needed a Fast Fast steering servo for those micro correction's but in all out reality when going to a little slower servo it didn't hurt my lap time's didn't need any drastic set-up change's...and over all made me faster as i was on the track more putting in laps...not watching from the side line's due to inferior gear.
