you guys should look into the Savox line. I have been using the same 4 in buggy and truggy for 1.5 years and never had a problem. They are very good indeed.

I use the Hitec 5955 in my buggy truggy and SC8. I think the one in my Truggy was in my Revo a couple years back.

See sig. I'm the official CRASH TEST DUMMY. Hitec 5955/7955 are incredible. I've bent and in one case even broken aluminum servo horns (servo saver? We don't need no stinkin' servo saver... crank it down until it coil binds!) with NO sign of failure.

If you can drive then all major brand servos are good. If you donkey flip all over the track, hit pipes and stuff then JR or Hitec..... I run JR and Hitec and have not had a problem with neither in 3-4 years.

LOL I guess Drake can't drive then, cause he's done with JR too. And has moved on to much greener pastures I might add. Cough...Cough...HITEC...Cough.

DOMIT says he is the original crash test dummy, then I'm a' ruunnin a close 2nd!
I'm that old dude at the track that cant see his car going down the back straight and hits anything that there is to hit. I'm really happy that someone suggested to me the ACE 1013 or 1015 servos. Well worth the 80 bucks!!

I've been using the same Futaba 9351's from my MBX4 via MBX5, Prospec, MBX5R, Tamiya 801X and now back in a MBX6.

I would love to try out some different servos, but I havent had the need to during the last five or six years.

Money talk BS walk, hes goes where the money is. I bet Hitec is paying him a HUGE $$$$$$$$$$$$ to run those servos. People buys what the PROs run. The only reason why I switched to Hitec is because I pay for my stuff and Hitecs are 100 cheaper.

I really don't believe that was the case. In fact he had run Hitec servos with JR stickers on them for some time before he became a driver for Hitec. Just FYI.

You are sadly mistaken.

Agreed! And...

Why are we even talking about servos other than Hitec's here?
