Default Yep

I use the cs-170 and it's lasted longer than any other servo in steering that I have used in 20 years of nitro buggy. The gears are really long lasting. after 2 years it has only a very small ammount of tic in them, and still works flawlessly. Money saver for sure.

I contest. I used a 1258tg as steering in my 8ight 2.0 for 2 seasons with no issues. Enough holding strength, and strong enough to withstand 2 seasons of abuse WITH the servo saver locked out. Gave the servo to my dad after getting my Radiopost; He has been running it in his 1/10 buggy for over a year.

Now I would recommend a RP multi type due to being faster and smoother. And almost bullet proof. Also they are LIPO ready.

the only reason why i say that is I read somewhere on the mugen thread that a failed 1258 on steering had Savox refuse replacement since it was not designed for 1/8th offroad steering applications..or something in that line. honestly if i had to due to whatever reason ill also use one on steering..it has plenty

If this is true, then the CS-170 should work with the Hitec programmers - which to my knowledge, none of the new CS-170's do.

If the 170 was 'upgraded' with newer circuitry and programmable, then I'm betting it's probably the same as the 7954, which still isn't the 7955.

the 54 is the 55 with steel gears. the thing is that if you like the 7955 run it but the CS170 is the same thing but cheaper (hitec will not say it because theirs is more and wants to sell it, more profit). the cs170 have changed in the past year......

7955 and 7954 have different motor and circuitry. The specs are just estimates.

If there's a "new" CS-170, it would likely be 7954 with ti gearset... if it's even programmable.

+1 on this should be the starting point.


If you want the best then go KO rsx. They will break the bank but be trouble free for a long while. I even had a rep from brand X tell me (quietly) that they were working on coming out with a servo along the same like as the rsx but they are not there yet.
