Default JR 9100 series Servos

How many of you guys are using the JR 9100 series servos? I just put in 9100t for seering and a 9100s for t/b in my 2.0 truggy. I really like them. How have they been for dependabilty. Life span, etc. Thanks Rick

I used them for this season and they worked out ok. The 9100T did develop some slop in the gears near the end of the season. The end points were done correctly. I have now been using the 7955's and they are working awesome so far. JR did fix the servo and has been fine ever since. Overall they are awesome servo's.

I use the 9100s for both controls on my 2.0 buggy and have been very happy after 6 gallons.

Burty, Thats good to know. Most guys say you can run them without a reg but you only get about half life out of them.

I have had some 9100's go all year and some bad brand new out of the box that didn't make it through a 5 min qual. I can say this they have a very good warranty.
