True that. It's an all around good servo to work up to. No way around it, this hobby loves money. But then, so do I.

I Do Not recommend a Hitec 5645....they are on the lower end of the scale and IMO wont cut the mustard.


As others have said buy a 7955 and be DONE with it.

You'll also want a decent throttle servo as trusting your 1/8 rig to a 30$ servo is never a smart idea.

7955 is too expensive. My buddy told me yesterday that hes running a Cirrus and its laste over a year in his buggy. Ill probably put a Traxxas 2055 for throttle

No Frank, Thats minimum if you want your buggy to run longer than 5 min, whether racing or bashing, and in my opinion a true basher puts more stress on servos than racing.

I think hes in the wrong hobby. Servos - you get what you pay for.

I cant see why you would need 150+ oz. of torque for throttle. 80 oz sounds good enough for me. I would think 130 oz of torque would be enough for steering. Im not afraid to spend cash on my car. Thats what I bought for. The problem is that i dont want to have to wait a month to save up enough cash to afford a servo.

you want at least 150oz for braking. 80oz probably isint going to be enough so youll turn up the end point to get more brake, and then youll fry the servo when you overload it trying to brake.


if you dont have the money to do it right the first time, when are you going to have the money to re do it right the second time

you are funny bro....... You wanna buy crap and keep replacing crap, and dont wanna hold on a sec to get GOOD quality parts....... thats just awesome.
And Fat is correct, throttle takes alot of abuse while breaking, and holding during chassis flex... Your asking for advice then go buy what you think. Every body i know that race run at lease 200 for steering and 150 for throttle....

just hold off and get good stuff dude

Get a 100 bucks it's the minimum for a 8 scale buggy.

Sorry we have to be blunt but it's the truth. If you wanna just "bash" your gonna need a good steering servo. Also don't over tighten your servo "SAVER". Set your endpoints too as to not burn out your servos.
