+2 on Orion/Savox servos,

i have the 20KGs/.15s (Orion 2015/ savox 1256) on both my MP9 and 8ight and i love this servo, as they said, its a bit noisy but thats normal and will defintly get your truggy turnning if you dont like the .15s speed, play with your steering exponential and make it higher so the steering will be more sensitive.

and as i said on your other thread, mugen aluminum servo horn is great.
cheers

Ali

I am loving my Hitec servo's. I wouldn't cheap out on servo's as you will be spending more money in the long run.

If money is not really an option, I would recommend the Hitec HS-7950 for Steering and the hitec HS-7940 for Throttle. If you are running a buggy you can get away with running the HS-7940 for both throttle and steering if you want the extra speed the HS-7940 offers. For some though it might be to much.

If you don't have quite that much I would go with the Hitec HS-7955TG for both throttle and steering.

All three of the Hitec Servo's listed above can run off 7.4v. Hitec's warranty is probably one of the best in the RC world.

Other servo's I have tried is the JR 9100T for Steering and the JR 9100S for Throttle. I did have a minor problem with these servo's and that they developed some slop at the end of the racing season. Both were fixed free of charge under the three year warranty they have. Note that they did not give a brand new servo, but replaced all parts that had some wear on them. They even replaced parts I didn't know had wear on them. In the end it most likely would of cost less for them if they gave new servo's for the price of labor and parts for both servo's. It did take them 2 1/2 months for them to be fixed but it did happen.

In the end I would recommend Hitec's servo's the most but JR servo's are a good product as well.

Default Hmmm

Titanium is great for lots of things, but used on gears, hinge pins and so on they tend to wear faster than expected. Really steel is the best for gears and high load friction areas. I used to buy titanium hinge pins for my rc10 and they wore out way faster than the stock steel ones, but who knows hitech servos have come a long way. I tend to favor, The 1313 Ace servos for steering on my buggy, and the futaba bl servo for throttle. It has great resolution and speed where it won't get broken as easily in throttle duty as it's like 100 bucks. the ace servo is like 75 bucks and if the gears wear out they are cheap like 18 bucks to replace, and I sent in the one ace servo that just stopped and they sent me a new one no questions asked. Futaba on the other hand are a pain in the neck to deal with. Now Jr servos are great, but expensive, but those are my three favorite brands...

hitec all the way 5955 or 7955 for steering and I run 5985 or currently 5996 tg for throttle/brake..burned out 1 motor pinion on an older 5955 .sent it in for repair and hitec replaced it with a 7955 at half price.. I've broken everything else I've tried..guys at our club run orion but at .07sec I only have to turn down the speed and they blow them regularly so they end up spending more than I did on my hitecs anyway....there are some good deals on ebay for hitec as well..

i had 2 ace servos motors burn up on my. now i am running hitec 7955s. they work flalessly. I would highly recomend these to anybody. @ 333 oz. of torque and .15 sec @ 6v. for little over $100 why bother with the rest. and the aluminum on TI i bet when the gears do strip it wil be the aluminum ones.

Yes you had a low end Hitec centering Problem....LET IT GO>

the Flagship 7955/7950/7940 are NOTHING like the little brother you had.

5645 or 645....either or...they have been around for many of year's with no problems.

Ti gears Do Not wear as you think they might....Ace's Do blow gear set's more often then not due to being weak brass......75 for a servo that WIll have the gears let go at some point in its life....OR 100$ for a Hitec That WILL outlast every piece of plastic/metal on you car currently...the choice is pretty easy if you ask me.
