A 7955 is faster than your reflexes.....I think they may be too fast but I use them any way.

So many different opinions... I guess it all just boils down to personal experience and taste.

yes and No but keep in mind...some guys who say stuff like "my servo's have never failed me and i race alot" when in reality he races maybe once a month if that and he's in the C sportsman class....which there isn't anything wrong with...but the fact remains he might not be anywhere near as demanding as say the Tq in the Pro class.....which is where the fast guys NEEED gear they can rely on....not gear that they question throughout the day of racing.

Lille-bror you've gotten the same explanation a couple time's in regards to cheeping out on servo's....if you wont take our advice we are giving you...then go buy what you please...our opinion's obviously dont make a difference to you.

Seeing as I'm new and will likely not be racing until next season, I'll stick with my servos of choice and see how they hold up during my off season practicing (crashing.) Maybe I'll want to upgrade in the spring.

Thanks again for all of the input and by all means keep up this discussion if you wish.

I don't think the servo leads were the cause of the glitching.I'll have to post a pic or 2 of my insanely clean battery box mod, I mounted a deans plug to the box lid and it plugs straight into the lipo which has a deans plug on it as well. My lipo is mounted on the splash guard near the steering servo.
Would like to see pics. And did you mean that your regualtor is mounted on the splash gaurd?

So how long you been racing for your Life? Remember, this is a hobby/sport, not life and death .

And before you say anything, I realise it is the primary source of income of some of the Pro's, but not many of them come on here asking about which servo to use. They use whoever sponsers them.
