Default Any Recommendations on what Servo to use in a Losi 8ight-E and Truggy 2.0

I have a Losi 8ight-E and a Truggy 2.0 with Spektrum 590 meta gear servos. Has anyone got some input to what to use in stead of the standard Spektrum metal gear ones.

With no budget, you can try these.

My budget was slightly lower so I got this:

When I was researching the same thing, I landed on a Team Associated DS1015. I have it in a 8T 1.0 and it is awesome and a reasonable price compared to others. I am pretty sure it is the same thing as an ACE DS 1015. Just my 2 cents, hope this helps

I am running a JR 9100S. I know its a throttle servo technically but it's still enough for a buggy. For a truggy I would run either the JR 9100T or the JR8711. The new High Voltage JR servo's are amazing but have a big price. If you have the money the JR high voltage line is awesome.

Does the JR servo fit a Futaba receiver, or does it require an adapter?

Well I have the Hitec 5955 for steering and I am on my second year with it! Very worth the money! I have used it in both buggy and truggy!

The new JR High Voltage ones seem good, but I have never seen one in action, and they are very pricey!!! $200 each!

As Far as specs for buggy/truggy? That is for steering servo right?

These are the specs I go bye;
Buggy: over 200oz.
Truggy: over 250oz.
In 1/8th scale torque is king, speed really isn't necessary, can cause the vehicle to seem twitchy in turns!

So if you get a Hitec 7955, newer version of the 5955, you can use it in both applications! Since it has 333oz. of torque for $120!

There is also the JR 8711 which is a very nice servo with 403oz. of torque but $140 price tag. I have seen it in action and its really nice!

Good luck!
