Hitec: 7955 / 7940

In both buggy and truggy.

Great combo.

the killer is having them to close to the chassis......raise em up a bit, all that as low as possible stuff is not good for servos!!!

So what's the deal with high voltage servos? I have never purchased them before and they seem to be a good chunk more than a regular brushless servo.

I would have not thought about going to Hitec but it seems there is a decent amount of recommendations for them.

I had been using the LRP servos before and they were awesome! But I broke 2 of them and no go anymore.

I am guessing people are going high speed on the steering and then high torque on the throttle right?

That kills more servo than what people know. Check epa and keep away from the chassis the vibration kills servos fast

How far do you recommend having between the servos and the chassis? I would have never guessed that would make it happen.

Another vote here for KO RSX I have 4 of them that have been abused in several different buggys and truggys since they were released in late 2010 and they are still kicking. Since I have swapped out every servo for a KO RSX. Earlier this year I ran into a top brand servo rep that was talking up his brand. I asked him how they stack up to the RSX and he told me the RSX servos are in their own class.

i am pretty fond of the Radiopost servos. They have several features besides their high resolution, fast speeds, and high torque that puts them above all others imo.

They have easily replaceable/removable mounting tabs, they are smaller(will never hit a chassis), and their internal design is rather unique that leaves void space allowing you to coil up extra wire and have it neatly hidden into the case. I also find them to be rather easy on power.

10-4, from my experience it is the only other servo out there that can be mentioned in the same class as my Ko Propo's. Honestly, they are about the same and $80 cheaper.

Backwards. Torque on the steering, speed on throttle. The speedy servos are needed for good throttle control and for getting from full throttle to full brake quickly. (no coasting at the end of the straight in 1/8th scale)

On 8.4v, a 7955 is fast enough and strong enough for both tasks. I gave up on using speed servos for throttle. That way i can pull my truggy throttle servo and use it for steering in my backup buggy. So all of my servos are 7955's now.

You radio post fanboys are a little out there comparing the post to the RSX line. I have seen racers roll through 3 of these radio post servos at a 5 day race event before we even hit the mains. I would place the radio post and savox servos on the same plate. I have only seen 1 KO RSX fail and that's due to it slapping the chassis.

If you are in the $100 per servo market hitec is the only way to go with the 7955. It's a pure awesomeness of a servo with a outstanding warrenty. For example I bought my first 7955 over two years ago. It was ran in a truggy for one year and a 1/8 buggy the other year. It recently was damaged when our tent was caved in by heavy rain/wind soaking my entire car. It failed to operate. I sent it in to hitec, no recipet And stated what happened. 1.5 weeks later I did t hear a word from them my servo shows up in the mail repaired. That can't get much better.

However if you have some coin to spend the KO's are pretty snazzy as well.

You say that like you're the epitome of unbiased reviews.
