I never thought I would run anything else but Futaba. I just kept seeing the 7955 being put in more and more cars. I found that after a few months of racing my steering servo (9351) would have a lot of slop in the gear train. I could just replace the plastic gear and all was well but I was getting tired of doing that. So I decided to try a 7955 for myself and so far I have been nothing but pleased. I know for a fact I have over 12 gallons of fuel through my current 7955's and the gear train still feels like the day they were installed. Very happy with my Hitecs.

50 gallons later the gear's will still feel the same.

I'm not sure exactly how many gallons... but I'm on my 4th engine with that same 5955 that WAS on steering but I moved to throttle when I got the 7955.

We're not knocking the Futaba servos. Just curious... what are you running it in?
