in hi-torqu applications they are very weak. maybe ok for 1/10 on-road

however buy some Airtronics, yes expensive, but buy once and never have to buy again

I got 2 631 units installed them in my TC4 and T4, not good... They shake when steering is not touched. I put a cap on them and still the same problem.. I disconnected the PT and fan, and still the same problem.

Any ideas from the people that are able to make them work?

not just any bird...but a bluebird.
they have micros and they're called hummingbirds...



bluebird servos are cheap...you get what you pay for.. and
to make them work properly...just through them away and
get yourself one the major brand servos... KO, Futaba, Airtronics, or JR.

i dont know what you guys are talking about, i got on in my savage, and its been fine, not a problem other than the truck having alot of torqsteer,(it tends to straighten out a bit once and a while), but other than that a great servo, not a single glitch yet!! havent used it in my tc but i wouldnt expect any problems.

Have this mounted in my TF-5 and have not had any problems with it.
Another plus with this servo-brand is that they all look fab, if flare is something your consernd of
