Default Cheapist Metal Gear Servo

Can anyone tell me the cheapest metal gear servo? Don't care about torque or speed just has to have metal gears as keep stripping plastic gears in Traxxas Stampede

Cheers

The JR 590 (like LOSI uses in it's RTR trucks, etc.) is very good. My grandson is HARD on his LOSI RTR truck, and the servo has never failed. He's broken every other part on the truck, but the servo just keeps on working.

The Bluebird servo's have become very nice servo's. I have R & D'd the newest version and I would put them up against any servo of the same specifications. I've run them in 1/10 scale gas cars, dirt oval, and on-road and I'm very impressed with the improvements they have made over the first offerings. Give them a try you won't be dissapointed Click on the slickzero link in my Signature, they have a full line and the cheapest shipping in the industry, good luck
