Yes, those are great servos for steering and throttle. Buy them and slap them in there. I have used that same servo with great success in many different cars.

I agree those are great servos, I have been running them for about 7 months with absolutely no issues, the 1258 is rated with 6.0 volts max, but I can tell you I have been running it with 7.4 volt lipos from day one and many other people as well with no issues. I have the 1256, 1258, 1267, 1268, 2270, 2272.

On my 8 2.0, I run 1267 throttle, 1268 steering.

^ I ran the 1258 on lipo as well. Ran perfect! I have even run the low profile 1251 on 7.4 volts with no problem. That was with a BEC though and it was only 7.4v

and i dont think i will change a pack because its 1900mah i can play 1 day full with practice and the final normal.
so do u agree to buy sc1258 for my throttle? i see in youtube that was very fast..
i am worry a lil bit about the kg which can handle.its true 12kg or its fake?

I have the 1258 and 1256. Torque one on steering, speed on throttle. They are performing better than some of my previous $115-$140 servos. I cant wait to get the high-voltage ones and a lipo.

i had a talk with the shop which i wanna buy..he told me 1 thing.
the company savox has an ''issue' when its say 0.013 for example isnt that speed..
but its more faster than its say..
is that true?

I've been using 1267's in both steering and throttle. First servo that has made it through an entire race season for me.

Finally tried one of the Savox servos (all aluminum case and I believe 416oz/.13@6v). Realy like it as a steering servo and has worked superbly...as good as some of my $200 KO's.

thank you all for your opinion..
the shop here in greece is missing 1258 so i buy 1257 for throttle i hope i will be ok with KG and the speed.
before i was using towerpro mg995 but i burn 1 in the race in the final and i got owned.
so its time to change to something good.
