i been running a futaba coreless servo on my 1/8 buggy as steering and now use it as a throttle servo and its been though, some hard running and its still center good and it still runs good. i think really that some people just get a bad batch of servos it can happen to any servo. (quote) hitec i have a had, really good luck with the orion and futaba servos they never let me down.

Can you rewrite that? I don't understand what you are saying.

"its been though, some hard running...."?

"(quote) hitec i have a had, really good luck...."

Chris this is not the first time he has been told this, on his own thread it was totally horrible, even Editors of magazines that posted said they got a headache trying to read it. We have tried and tried to tell him nothing goes thru....So now most read it to entertain themselves and try to fiquere out what hes trying to say kinda fun sometimes lol

I have the same problem with my 7955. It just started though, it used to work fine. Now when I turn either way, it refuses to center. Can't really tell on the track though. Switched to JR's for the truggy, and no problems at all.

You said you have a mugen, well the pivot balls can bind and cause this same issue. Check and clean the pivot ball area and make sure to leave a little room for movement. Don't get me wrong I don't like hitech stuff, and the steering sevo centering issue is common in 1/8th scale racing. I replace a gear set after a while of racing and then the servo. I don't mind a little dead band in my steering, it doesn't hurt anything. It seems like your trying to measure too much with the setup board, and so on. It's off road, just make sure your car goes straight. In the end I like ace servos the 1313 is my favorite for steering in my 808. Futaba brushless for throttle. But most like the JR servos, they have always been great performance wise, but tend to die unexpectidly too, heck they all seem to. Good luck man. I feel your pain.

I must say the most sensible post i have read on rc tech.your 100% correct every brand of servo fails .Mass production some slip through without testing

keep up the good work

it's a issue with the dead band I am sure. So I am not upset anymore, i doesn't affect my driving at all. The only thing that had me mad was on the setup station, my toe, camber, and steering throw were very hard to split the difference.

Anyway, they are still great servos, and like i said it's not the linkage. I put a old busted up cheaper jr in and it center perfectly. THe JR servo i put in had more the a couple degrees of play, and i had those servos for a couple months before they blew. The durability of jr sucks, with hitec i had one underwater, full head on collision etc, and the gear's have no play.

But like i said, i might be overreacting, it does not effect performance. But still am upset that a 100$ servo will not center but a busted up 40$ one will.
