Maybe we should give the 7950 a full season of use before we crown it. It's still a rookie.


7955,7950,7940 are the least expensive servos you can put in a 1/8th scale. You only have to buy them once.

I will say this for the ace I have it in my latemodel and its been great I have taken some hard hits as well as hit the wall good and hard and it hasn't given me a bit of trouble the way I see it is if I can stand up to the abuse of 1/8 scale latemodel racing then its def worth a look

i would go with an hitec 645, thye are around $35 and they are a good starter servo. i had one on the hyper 7 i had and it did fine and matter of fact im still using the same on now for my throttle and i have had for a year now.

cool thanks guys! what are these 7955,7950,7940? Who makes them where could i get them?

One more question...

I have a fm radio I use on a Adam Drake2. Is it okay to just take the crystal out of that car and put it in my hyper? So I can use my fm radio with the hyper?

Tell that to the 3 7955's that im still trying to get replaced
they are a great servo, but they have a circuit board problem.
3 out of 6 failing in the throttle position in one season isnt a great result for a servo that everyone is crowning as the greatest servo ever

I've had problems with three Ace's, turns out the seals were letting water in. The two warranty replacements were sealed with silicone round the seals and extra grease in the gears, a year later they are still running nice and smooth.
I run a pretty tight servo saver and havent stripped any gears yet.

Thanks for the info guys.
putting this sort of question up will always get many replies on there favourites.
All are very good servos & all will have the faults in service twitching & noise.
Ace will start to twitch after a while as the gears wear simple fix when it gets real bad take the top of & move the brass gear around 180 deg, now you have new gears & no twitching.Great price & reliable.
Orion's buzz but this does not effect performance great price & reliable.
Savox great priced budget & good specs although some batches have had blroblems.
Hitec great servo appears warranty replacement is slow price now getting higher.
Sanwa & KO all good but higher end of price bracket.
Like i said all good servo's in what ever you choose just remember to set your end points correct & they will all do a good turn.
