Not in this case, Savox has an "Ultra Speed .09 speed and 291 oz tq @ 7.4v" (SC-1267SG - $96)

And the "Ultra Torque .11 Speed with 361 oz tq @ 7.4" (SC-1268SG $96)

Both take high voltage

Talking Savox Servos

Try this on for size.

Savox 1268MG

Torque: @6.0v - 208 oz-in. (13 kg-cm) / @7.4v - 361oz-in. (26 kg-cm)
Speed: @6.0v - 0.13sec/60░ / @7.4v - 0.11sec/60░
Voltage Range: 4.5v-7.4v
Weight: 62g
Motor: Coreless
Gear: Steel
Case: Aluminum Heatsink
Output Shaft: 25T Spline (Futaba)
Dimensions (LxWxH): 40.3x20.2x37.2mm

This should be sufficient for your throttle/brake.

Might break the throttle on the engine if not setup correctly.


As for the price, Can't beat $95 bucks at Amain hobbies.

I have 2 I am going to put in my Serpent 811 or Mugen MBX6T.

Hitec has a killer 480+ oz in servo which I am looking at as well.

Cost a little more. (149) but, 100 more oz of torque to me means let to

worry about when it comes to overstressing the servo.

Even if you don't set it up correctly (endpoints) With that amount of torque,

you might break what it's attached to instead of the servo.

I was considering this but it's quite weak at 6.0V compared to Hitec 7955 and non-HV Savox. As i said before i won't have 7.4V soon so i think it's not worth to invest in such a servo. That's why i'm choosing between 7955 and Savox SC-1256TG (they both are really strong at 6.0V).

Savox's are great! I bet at least 70% of the hardcore racers out here in Holland use them.
I have the 0254, 1256, 1257 and two 1258's. I've seriously never had better servo's. The new production ones can handle up to 7.4 volts.
Plus they are only half the cost of futaba's brushless ones.

I'd say go for it. But I know all the people here are keen on hitec. You don't see a lot of those around here, really.

5955 CAN run lipo, but the life span will be slightly diminished by a small factor.

Generally in RC car stuff you get what you pay for. I honestly LOVE Hitec servos they last a long time and perform amazingly.

I rock an Orion Vortex VDS-2015 which is a relabeled Savox. And it is absolutely amazing. I would defiantly go with the Savox. Great price for the Savox and unmatched quality. I wish I would have know about them when I got my Orion because the price difference.

I'm also running a 8ight. Just make sure the endpoints are set properly also.

I agree 100% but trust me when I say Savox is an exception.

FYI-Still waiting on the blown motor on my first hitec I sent back, the second one which was a gear break, they sent me parts for free. So lets see how long it lasts

When I see Hitec servos in a savox team driver's car I usually tend to think there's a reason for that... Just sayin...

As we are in the throttle/brake servo thread... Could you please give me a link where to buy a throttle ball rod end? I don't know if i called it correctly but i mean the plastic that is connected to the throttle linkage and to the carb.

I'm shopping on amain so it would be nice if this link will be from there.

I know that there is a whole throttle/brake linkage system but i need only this small plastic.

I have found something that seems to be ok but it's XRay's and i'm not sure if it will work in Losi.
Here's what i've found
