Yeah I see what you are saying. Mine has only been through 3 weekends of racing. That was the only reason I would not put them ahead of the KO Propo. I will have to wait and see how long they last and the customer service from Radio Post. But on specs, smoothness, and noise they are right there with KO Propo. Trust me, I love the RSX's in my buggy!!!!!

I don't think an unbiased RC racer exists we all have to believe in our equipment, it gives me peace of mind on the stand. Some do take it more extreme than others...

I would love to see someone have better results with them than I have seen so far. Just what I have seen.

If a person went through 3 servos in a single race, he is obviously doing something fundamentally wrong. Even running cheapo HobbyKing $9 servos, no one should go through 3 of them in a single race.

Default Hmm

I only trust the 7955 for steering duty in a nitro buggy. It just lasts longer. Not just the motor, but the gears never get sloppy. Ever. It's pretty amazing. Super smooth gears. I like to put some grease on them because most servos are not greased properly.

My favorite throttle servo is the bls451 futaba. It's perfect for buggy. Super smooth, long lasting, and fast. A truggy would probably need a 7955 in throttle too, they need more stopping power.

+1 on hitec servos. If they are mounted properly with adequate chassis clearance they will last you years. On my tki2 I'm current using an old school 5955 on steering and a 7950 on throttle. I purchased these servos early 2010...

I use Radiopost servos. I can't say they r in the same class are the RSX cause I've never tried them before but I sure do like how they perform at this juncture. To me, Savox is a hit-or-miss. If u get a good one, they last. I had 4. 2 went crazy. Hitecs are good.
So, either the RSX, Radiopost or Hitecs will be Alrite in my opinion. I'm just more inclined to stick to my Radiopost cause they have been reliable to my abuse so far.

EVERY servo will go funny when u dont set EPAS and set servo height properly.

I will continue to use Savox servos because for the price of one rsx i can have 3 savox's... which would fill a 1/8 gas and a 1/10 electric. and will last forever.
even if i had a never ending hole of money i would still use savox.

whisper quiet and ultra fast servos try the futaba bls451 in your throttle and the bls352 in your steering if you are using futaba radio gear this will match perfectly.
cheers

I am using savox servos in my truggy and they have worked well for the past season and a half but I did hear at the 1/8 worlds in thailand that there were alot of savox servos that failed the new savox line up looks good

if you want the BEST, KO PROPO. Done. Been running them for two years now in my TLR 2.0 buggy and truggy with zero issues!

there was alot of untrue things "happen at the worlds" just remember that the fastest guy in Quals had a KO fail on him... if your servo hieght isnt right along with epas it will kill every servo.

That was due to a pinched wire.
But setup is very important I agree.

I to have several 7940 and 7950 AND 7955 have been sent in for repair.

I have been running Savox servos for a while now and I am very happy with them.
