Default Losi 8ight T 2.0 RTR Servo Issues

When I received my Losi 8ight T 2.0 RTR it had a bad steering servo from the factory, contacted Horizon and they have one in the air 2 day delivery for me. So I got impatient and put in an older HiTec servo that i had on an old Ofna buggy i havent used in years. It worked for maybe 5 mins then it fried on me. Then I put in a traxxas servo from my T-Maxx and it fried it too. They both had plastic gears instead of metal, so i'm hoping thats the issue. Is there any other reason why it happens like this, couldnt there be an adjustment on the Spektrum DX that I need to adjust to protect my servos a bit more. The truggy is equipped with servo safers.
