Ko Propo makes some really good stuff. A little more exoctic then your normal gear but excellent quality and product support. I have two in my Losi 8ight 2.0 buggy. You break a gear, you can order directly from their site.

A PDS-2367 in throttle 160oz. .10trans
A older PDS-2144 FET in steering 180.5oz. .13trans

i have 2386 on both buggy and trug with a couple gallons on each. very smooth unregulated or regulated compared to other servos i have used. i read somebody else somewhere posted some time ago that ko servos have very live like tendencies making them very easy to get use to and use. on my throttles i use the old 2366 which is very smooth and efficient as well.

I rarely hear bad things of ko. you will surely be happy once you begin using them. keep posted on your take on them. which exactly did you grab?
