Default Between these 2?

Hitec 7985 or ace DS1313, they both are the same price and have almost the exact same specs. Its for steering on a 8th scale e-buggy I am getting ready to build. I would usually spend another $20 and get top of the line bud am kinda on a buget with a new kit PT esc-motor, and lipo. I use Hitecs now and am on my 2nd year with no issues so i am partial to them but see alot of these Ace servos out there. I was also considering the Futaba BLS452 same price and similar specs.

Defiantly go with the hitec. I have used more expensive servos and I love the way the hitec work they feel like a higher quality product and their service department is excellent. I used JR 9100s/t all last season and when They were in for service I purchased hitec 79xx series products. I like the hitec servos much better. I want to run un-regulated lipo and JR has their versions out but I am waiting for the hitec 7950's. Stay away from that ACE/AE junk servos. I have seen more of those servos fail than any other brand. I know a couple racers that love them but overall I think the hitec is a safer bet.

Go Hitec.

I had 2 DS1313's, and the 2-month old one fried (no hard impacts, just running in my yeard/driveway), and then my week old one died, and mysteriously came back to life 2 days later.

I will be going to the 7955 when I can afford it, or the Ace dies.

For almost $20 you can get a Hitec with similar/better ratings, so I would recommend those, unless you either can't get Hitec or you love AE.

Forgot to add "cheaper" to that sentence, but for $20 you could get a TowerPro servo!

AKA worst servo ever.

I am a firm beliver in you pay for what you get. i run $140 JR servos and I personally love them despite the price. I will not spend a grand on a TOY and put in a $20 servo. i want top of the line. It only make sense since you already spent so much money

Hitec 7985. I just bought that same servo to replace a finally worn out Hitec 5925 after 3 years of racing.
