Expensive, but worth every penny. If you look around, you can find them for cheaper.

For the losi, I would recommend the savox HV servos. They work great in losi's because they are shorter then most servos. They will also be the least expensive HV servo on the market. 1267mg and 1268mg

+1, you can use the lipo receiver pack without regulator, major bonus! hard to get all those wire shoved into battery or receiver box

Savox HV's is where it is at. You can't beat the torque and speed on these guys. 1267 and 1268. They are loud, but its typical. It freaked me out at first.

Alright dudes, I looked at the savox ones and i really like those..but who has the best deal on them? they seem pretty expensive still.

also, do the rtr losi servos work ok? They are metal gear, high torque, and digital servos...what do u think?

The Losi rtr servos are crap. The Savox servos are about the best your gonna get for the price. Might get a year out of one. If you want somthing that will last shop around for some JR 9100Ts Ive beem running one in my Losi 2.0 T. for almost 2 yrs now and not a problem. You can find them for 119.99 if you shop around or check the for sale area here on tech...

The ko servos are by far the best I have seen and used. But for the $$ and also for the losi cars I would put Savox 1268 servos on both and run them on straight lipo. The sa ox servos are not as deep as any other servo; thereforefhere is no way they will hit the bottom of the Losi chassis and burn out. I have personally only run the Savox on 3 race days but they seem solid.

Ok, i phrased that wrong...i have been racing for a while so i know a lipo isnt just a lipo...what i meant is does anybody know the demensions of the battery tray in the 8ight truggy so i know what lipo i can buy for a reciever battery? I think i have one picked out and it looks like it might fit but i just wanna know...it's a 2s 6c lipo with the futaba plug on it. Let me know

Hey man this hobby is not cheap and if you want quality stuff I have colse to 2000 stuffed into a Durango with ko servos, radio, xz speed, Fastlane skin and a lipo. Haha the lipo was the cheapest part. And I'd do it again. You can do it cheaper but dnf's suck and cheap equipment always ends up getting replaced and costing more in the long run.
