I've had zero issues with the CS-170 steering and CS-160 throttle servos from Hobbico in my MBX6T and MBX6. Yes they are Hitec servos in sheeps clothing but their not inferior in my opinion. I had to send a cs-160 back on two seperate occasions when I ran a losi 1.0 buggy that killed throttle servos and they sent me a brand new servo, no questions asked within 5 business days. I use hitec servos in other cars as well so don't think I'm biased. I love Hitec products.

by the way orion is a know name, and there servos are good quailty also.

First part of your statement says Orion is a no name, and then you say their servos are good quality. Which is it and no name company or good quality.
Thats why you need to read what you type before you submit. Horrible

Who knows but that is what is frustration, specially to someone new who is looking for advice he could run them so far up a tree. This is not the first post like that as Im sure you all are aware of.

You need to reread your post before asking me what the hell am i talking about. "by the way orion is a know name, and there servos are good quailty also." Straight from your post the word know is pronounced (no) with out an N on it. Nevermind you wont understand the hell with it

+1 Again, might as well spend the money up front for great servos, and have the piece of mind they will last one less thing to worry about on race day

Im anal about my equipment. And after many years of racing, one of many things that I have learned, dont skimp on electronics(it has bit me in the ars many times). I have been running the same 2 servos for over 5 years, with zero issues.
$10 is not worth the frustration.
