Airtronics 94359 all the way!!

I've beat the piss out of my 8th scale and have never had this servo fail. It's expensive but worth the money.

I run a KO2173 for brake/throttle and a KO2174 for steering.

Both can be picked up for around 60 on ebay.

I've been running my Hitec 5925 and its a great steering servo. I've ran this servo for 3 years now switching it around, and its been in all my vehicles, awsome servo has never given me any problems, but the plug is starting the break from so much use now.

I find the best combo in terms of cost and effectiveness is having the JR Z650GM as the steering servo and the Z590GM as the throttle.

I have that set up on my Hyper ad was always wanting more in both steering and throttle response. Not a basd combo for a basher but I wouldn't put them into another one of my race machines.

Hitec's are great till they crap out on you which usually happens at the worst time possible. I had 6 hitec digital 5925 servos that died so many times I had 8 replacements under warranty.

Used airtronics 357 servos after that which were good but ocassionally the plastic gear would strip out on steering.

Also had Futaba 9451 also good but again stripped the plastic gear sometimes.

Bought 2 Futaba 9350 servos right before the 9351 came out and so far no problems knock on wood they have lasted a whole year without any problems whatsoever.

I am seriously considering trying the new hitec's out since it appears they saw problems with their digital servos and have tried to fix the reliability issues.

Now that I've used the 9350 servo though I fully believe in metal cases to disappate the heat and provide a strong case that cannot be flexed even under the extreme loads caused by jumping 1/8th scale buggies.

I'm currently using a airtronics digital in both my K3 and GT. They work great so far. Although seem to need to recharge my batts after two qualifiers now. Probably time for new batts.

Never had a problem with an Airtronics servo. Using a 358 in my K2 and Savage.....very fast and has absolutely no issues steering either around
