MKS DS1210 Titanium Gear Standard Digital Servo

At AMainHobbies.
That looks like a decent cheap servo:

I hadn't paid attention to this servo before but it looks like a good buy for sure! Might have to pick up a couple while they are on sale to have for backups.

Yeah i know it's expensive... But somehow to me the feel it gives me is like I'm getting bang for the buck. It feels like I'm controlling The Terminator instead of an off-the-shelve servo, if that makes sense - it actually *feels* like the best-of-the-best
I wouldn't recommend it for people on a budget. But if you're looking for the best of the best, I'd say this is it.

It is its quiet suprisely and it has a long servo wire also. It uses the Futaba horns on it .

plently of torque and speed also. But no need for a Extra BEC or a Cap.

I would say though it has more speed than anything especially with a Alum horn on it. No plastic gears all titinuim gears in it.

The thing i love is the alum case under it stays really cool.

Thanks a lot... This track I run on is such a mixed bag - not a clue what to do but the stock springs are not it... It's said that the TLR springs are better then the stock jobs, so Ill have to start there... Very new at this - but love it

Has anyone run the GPM (or GKM can't remember) hardened washers in their diffs? Are they the real deal?

Good to know, cause I just received some. They didn't look quite the same size as stock.

You have the part# for the mugens?

I installed the GKM harded washers in all my diffs a while ago they seem good wear is not bad. But i havent ran my truck outdoors yet where the big power comes out. And there dirt cheap so.


Fine4U: I have the race rear springs and i tryed out the black ones and the front race" black springs big improvement over stock !
