i think i have decided on this servo. Anybody run it?
I use the 5645 (more torque, less speed) for my 8th scale buggy and it gets the job done.

I just got my cases fixed so a 7955 is going back in and the 5645 is going in my strike. Do it right and buy once:

Nope, it just a .03 second difference, but it dose lack a bit of torque.

Yeah, it makes sense, but if you feel the 8ight doesn't have alot of steering than something else is wrong.

This servo is no better than the one you got already.

Dude your going to spend $100 bucks, to be happy.....

Break down and get the ACE servos or save a few extra bucks and get some good Hitecs.

I've run cheap servos before.

But the most cost effective servo is the Hitec 7955.

So you can get one 7955, or 4 of nearly every servo thats cheaper.

Default hitec

I've been running the 7985 hitecs for throttle and the older 997tg for steering for 2 seasons with no failures. If you can't afford the 955tg or the new 7950hv. I would have no problem putting in the 7985 for a steering servo. Plus Hitec has the best warranty in the busines imo. I've seen lots of the 1015's go bad.

The ACE 1313 is probobly going to be the best bet. I used it once on my buggy for steering and really didn't really feel a difference between that and my 1015. In my truggy I am sure I would have but a buggy that servo does just fine. But any servo sub par to the 1313 is not gona be any improvement to what you already have.

+1.. cheap servo's and 1/8 don't mix.

you can pick up a hitec 7955tg for 100 bucks and NEVER have to worry about it again. I have 5X 7955tg and it's teh best investment i've made for RC. FAST, strong and indestructable. it turns even my 40 series monster truck tires like it's nothing.
