Default Just bought this servo... hope its decent!

I wanted a faster low profile servo for my TC3. A buddy and I have been racing every week and I burnt up an old servo. Replaced it with a spare Traxxas 2075 I had in the box but it was sloooooow.

http://www.hobbypartz.com/33p-solarservo-d770.html

This one has great specs for 6v which is what I'll be running. I'm excited also (might be dumb) that it's low profile because man is it a tight fit on the right side of the chassis with the servo, receiver, esc and motor sitting over there!

Will update with my rating once I've ran a few packs through it.

I love this servo, run it in every vehicle! Its not a true low profile servo but its shorter then standard.

Yeah I saw it wasn't quick as shallow as the Savox but in reality, a standard servo does fit in the space, this one should just leave a gap so the esc isn't touching the servo now. And, it's slightly more powerful and twice as fast as my current servo. AND, it's metal gear.

I bought one to try out. This worked fine in the beginning but buzzed like crazy after a couple months of use . I went back to Airtronics servos.

My other one buzzed a bit too. Guess I'll see if it's manageable. Thanks!

*= degrees

I don't think it specifies but I think I'll still be satisfied with that honestly.
