ive had some pretty bad wrecks and ive hit another truggy at wide open throttle head on down the straight (bc he was going the wrong way ) and never had any problem... your center problem isnt with the $50 or cheaper servos is it? because i have had centering problem on those... but with the 79(whatever number) there hasnt been any problem. futaba is good servos, but i need more torque than they offer.

Never had one little hint of a centering problem on any of my Ti gear Hitec's. I've run 59XX series and 79XX series. Not one little issue.

Futaba's are good servos too, but nowhere near as tough as Hitec's.

Savox servos(Orion)... Well I have no experience with them, but I've seen some big name Savox sponsored racers running Hitec's for steering. So I'd venture to say that Hitec's are better.

LMAO! That's not a centering problem, it's called your trim setting. A "centering problem" is when a servo doesn't return to center properly after being actuated. The "problem" you described is simply a setting in your radio bud.

you dont have your radio close do you? my hitecs and airtronics twitch like crazy if my radio is within a foot or 2 of my buggy/truggy... JR, futaba and scion dont twitch so when i switched to airtronics and hitecs i freaked out one day trying to get them to center.

I think this servo has the perfect speed for my driving style. It's fast, but not twitchy fast.

all servos ive had has done that because the teeth arent perfect to your horn... also what ive learn is turn the steering all the way both ways a couple of times before putting the horn on to make it center right.... and problems finding center is when your driving and it wont make the wheels straight after you've adjusted it all up. meaning one time it will pull to the right and you fix that then the next time it will pull to the left, if you know what i mean? all servos you have to adjust them with 99.9% of the servo horns... i hardly ever am able to leave it at 0.
