Ok, maybe I went off a little to early, when I asked about the JR Z590 servo, I had already placed a bid on it, I ended up getting it (new) for only $30 delivered to me in Australia.

My current throttle servo is a Sanwa ERG-VB from what info I can find on the net I should be able to use this as a steering servo, what do you guys think?

Or am I barking up the wrong tree?

sorry to say but the z590 is a RTR servo and nothing more...its what they include on the steering in RTR losi vehichles and unfortunately they aren't the best quality wise and tend to fail sooner then later....No clue on the Sanwa servo sorry.

The 590 makes for a fine throttle servo but it wont live too long for steering.

Here are some specs on the ERG VB.
Speed 0.10sec/60?(6V)
Torque 13kg-cm (6V)
Dimensions 39.0x20.0x37.4mm
Weight 60g


From my small knowledge, it should be ok for steering?

Had to drop out of several races dude to ACE servo's failing, and because of the hassle I wont run them any more...great servo when they are working, but definitely not as durable or reliable as the Hitech's ...... Same story with JR servo's, great when working, but failure rate is far too high for me to trust them...the only steering servo I will consider is a 7955..... I run a Futaba BLS on throttle tho, and I absolutely love it, but I wouldn't trust a BLS for steering, been there and got burnt ..... IMHO the only safe bet these days is a 7955...
I've been running two ace1015's for almost three years. I love'em. I changed the top case on the steering a month ago. It had developed a lot of slop due to the case bushing/bearing. I noticed the stock case had some type of plastic bushing/bearing but the replacement from amain had a brass one. Slop is gone and it's just like new. Great servo for the price.

I've seen those redcase jr servo's fail time after time at the track.

You can't go wrong with the 7955.

the brass inserts help but aren't the solution to weak brass gear's.....ive had gear's fail more then 1/2 a dozen time's before i gave up on them.

Ouch.

Originally I thought it was the grears so I orderd a set of gears before I took the case apart. Amain's part number for the gears were plastic and once i took the case apart the gears looked fine. After that I noticed the bushing. The amount of play I had was enough that the servo kept trying to center so the wheels would just wiggle back and forth. If I hadn't replaced the case I could definitely see the gears failing.

Maybe your bad luck or i'm just lucky. I don't know.(knock on wood)

Hitec 7940 throttle and 7950 steering are no doubt the BEST servos out period!

I can't believe nobody has recommended the 7955, 7950, or the 7940 yet!
