The Hitec 645 is better - here's its specs -

SPECS: Speed: 0.20 sec/60 at 6.0V
Torque: 133.31 oz-in at 6.0V (9.6 kg-cm)
Length: 1.59" (40.6mm)
Width: 0.77" (19.8mm)
Height: 1.48" (37.8mm)
Weight: 2.11oz (60g)


These are the specs on the 2055 -

SPECS: Length: 1.6" (40.5mm)
Width: .8" (20.5mm)
Height: 1.43" (36mm)
Torq: 80 oz/in
Weight: 1.58oz (45g)


You used to need to upgrade the servo saver when you swapped to a MG servo to get all the benefit from it you could (also to better protect the gears too). The stock saver was too 'mushy' with a 645.

Unless he has a 3.3 maxx that has the servo saver built into the bellcrank If not the heavy duty Kimbrough one is a popular choice.

But yea put that Hitec back in there. Thats exactly whats in my truck. Works great

Alright i will put it back in there.. I was reading that the 2055 will be good for the brake and throttle..
But i had the 2.5 tmaxx and i put a 3.3 in it But all the components are 2.5 but the motor.

I have one of those on my steering servo.. I did not realized i had that until i looked at the link. I got this truck used so the guy already did some stuff to the truck

But i put the 2055 servo as my throttle/brake servo because i heard a good servo for that spot.
