I had a standard Futaba that I was using until 2000 and it was still working great when I included it in a sale. Had it since 1984.

the thing is, the revo steering geometry is so good and the truck is light that you dont need arm snapping power. I have a 5955 in my MGT because it weighs almost 12 pounds. I had a race revo before and had a much cheaper 5645 digital servo and it was more than enough.

From what I understand, digitial servos send a signal waaay more than the analog servos do so the servo is pulling/pushing more constant. Also, I read somewhere that a digital servo rated at say 200oz is pulling at 200oz throughout the whole motion where an analog servo reaches it at the end only. Just something I read, didnt look into it because Ive used both and based my decisions on experience of what worked.

digital servos have a signal thats 10 times more than analog servos.....so if a analog is operating at 10 signals per millisecond or w/e a digital is operating at 100 signals per millisecond.....and digital servos drain more battery power because of this
