Good point, the 7955 was 125.00 most places until the 7950, and 7940 servo's came out. Maybe he wanted to save 20.00 or 25.00 for some tires. Come on, get on someone case for wanting to save money in these times. Once again I think the normal everyday racer will never notice the difference, unless your Adam Drake or someone like that. I have to say, I bought 7955 servo's at Airwild Hobbies a couple months ago, but I might of bought the 7954 servo's if they didn't have the killer deal on them at the time. I think they still have the 99.00 price FYI. Also remember some people will buy more than one servo at a time, if he has a buggy and and truck he could save 100.00. Once again, I not on this site much anymore, been running my full size race car, so I cant comment on other topics that have been posted. I challenge anyone to run the two servo's back to back and tell me they can tell the diff.

Hope you all have a great weekend.

Anyone running solid mounted/no grommets? Sure way to kill a servo?
I never rubber mount my servos. Never had an issue with them either. Although, I do believe rubber mounting them is the proper method. I guess I'm using the improper method. It does scare me a bit, but they're holding up great. Anyway, what I'm trying to say is, you should rubber mount them, but not 100% necessary I guess.

7955's have been selling for right around $100(same price as the 7954) at many places for a LONG time now. You just have to do some looking and not buy from the first place you see selling them for $120.

As for telling HIM to buy a more expensive servo, I have NEVER said such a thing. That's the part he doesn't understand. These threads are advice for someone else... NOT him. He can buy whatever he wants. Point is the 7954 is just a downgraded, renamed crappier version of the 7955. So to everyone EXCEPT tc5, Buy the 7955 for gods sakes.

I am sure they have been selling for 100.00. When I bought mine, Airwild was the only place I could find them at 100.00. A-main, Servo city etc where at 120.00 just like they are know see below. Where else can you get them at 100.00 right now? I need like 10 for a 35% Extra I am trying to finish up.

Ebay...

http://cgi.ebay.com/Hitec-Coreless-D...#ht_1708wt_913

http://cgi.ebay.com/Hitec-HS-7955TG-...ht_4331wt_1139

Now was that so hard???

Like I said it may take a bit of looking, but they're plentiful in the $100 range. Some even $90 range.

AGAIN that's my point. Same specs, same price, same servo but with a better gear train. Win win really.

No, I haven't bought from any of those before, they all seem legit. If you're worried about it, buy on ebay and use paypal. If your servos don't show up, you just file a claim with paypal or your credit card co.

Trust me they last very good, steel running one 1258 off the first generation for 2 years now.
For truggy i use the 1256 (20kg/0.15) for steering and 1258 (12kg/0.08) on trothle/brake, plenty off power and speed on the 1256 and your beloved Ti gears
If i wer to pay for them i would steel buy them for sure.

Crap shoot!! There is no best now a days. Everybody has good products its about service and money. What can you afford? What service center are you closets to? I'm moving toward HT servos, why the HQ is right down the street and there customer service is A1. Bottom Line THERE IS NO BEST its luck of the draw.

I agree to a certain point. Most servos are pretty good performance wise (jr, futaba, hitec, ace, savox etc). But customer service and warrenty repair is where the servo brands seperate themselves. This is the most important detail in choosing a brand.

I don't mind popping servos as long as its replaced at no cost.
