I would think that if they locked down the servo saver it might break during a race. I recommend around 170-whatever you want in torque, but I do like a fast throttle servo faster than .15 anyhoo...

oh well you, should see the track i race on it can get rutty and bumpy yea i hit the brake and let it roll a bit get on the gas and steer.

but to me, the 333 oz is plently enough for me to steer and hold at the same time.

i run 5 in the rear on my eight-t.

i have my servo saver almost locked down but the 300+oz will be safe with that but yeah im liking faster servos on the throttle .... i switched to O'donnell and their breaks work and im not needing the torque that i needed to get my previous buggies and truggies stopped so now time to upgrade to a faster throttle

yeah just switched last week actually i really like them... and talking about delay, my throttle servo was going out at my race this weekend i was having to think about 2 seconds ahead it sucked and then it finally stopped working, im just glad i was on the breaks when it did.... it was a servo i bought for 20 bucks when i was in a pinch from someone at the track and its lasted me like 4-5 months and racing every single weekend with it... not bad IMO, airtronic servos are pretty nice

I would tend to use a higher torque servo for steering purpose, especially for truggy. I like Hitec 7950

Going slow is going fast.

Default turnigy high voltage servos

hey guys,

i bought a couple of the new turnigy high voltage servos as the price was really good on them.

i recently blew the steering servo in my ve8. ( it was a jr 9100s i wont buy another jr servo they are unreliable ) i run hi tec high voltage servos in my d8t truggy.

does anyone know what servo horn is needed for the turnigy hi voltage servos?

i tried a hi tec and a jr both dont fit. anyone who knows the spline count ?

thanks

the reason why it burnt out was because it doesnt have enough torque IMO... but you know you can send it in and get a new one free right? just need a receipt and the form off their site. if you dont want to send it in, ill take it off your hands ill pay for shipping

I don't by that these modern servo's don't have enough torque. If 300+ doesn't work, I'd be looking into something binding up front. I come from enough years of racing to know even ~150oz/in can work even in a truggy let alone buggy. I just cooked my trusty old KO 2144 in my mbx6t. Only ~185oz/in. About ~7-8 years old. Ran in several truggys. I love that servo. Is/was pretty fast (.13) and had good torque. Centered dead on all the time, every time.

That being said, I just picked up a Hitec 7950 for a shot. As good as it's suppose to be, it's going to have to earn me over or I'll be looking to go KO again.

try the, hitec 7954 servo they have a steel gear and a titanuim gear one for around $92.00 to $100 it has the same thing as the more expensive ones and it, has 333 oz of torque i run it on my steering for my truggy and love it.
