this is going to turn into a opinion bash fest like all other servo and motor and chassis threads.

ALOT use those servos and have good luck, i personally use ALTURN and Savox. ACE servos are nice too, i have tryed most brands but just decided to stick with ones that are sold here.

havent had any problems.

Hitecs are very good, I personally run the 5645 and 5625 in my truggy! I'm not one to spend a lot on servos! No problems with many races on them! As long as you are into the 120+ in/oz range and up for throtle and 140+ for steering with about .18 speed or lower and your good to go !!

I like the Orions personally. If you want the same servo at a lower cost go Savox.

7950 great stearing servo. 7940 is a fast throttle servo or stearing. 7955 good all around workhorse servo.

There are A LOT really good servos out there, but I'd like to say this:

Savx aren't only great for the money, they're just great. Period.
I've got the impression, they are often underestimated because they're quite inexpensive compared to most other high end servos.

I know HiTech servos cost more but their warranty is top notch.

How does savox servos warranty compare with HiTechs?

Yes sir!

I might as well get in my "opinion" JR 9100T steering, JR 9100S throttle.

ace 1015s are a good steer servo but there throttle 1313 I have had some failures so I went for a 1015 in throttle also and a hitec in throttle as a backup
cheers

i use them and i am happy with them. they are very strong, i use one as a lift to raise my wifes car for tire rotations.....seriously though make sure the epa is set correctly on the throttle/brake or it can do some damage.

I currently run Hitec's 7940TH's, have four of them currently. I have broken three but they replaced the parts at no cost which is great.

If I had to do it again, I would purchase Savoxx servos, nothing to do with their price, but their durability is great. Have one so far but if I buy any servos new for any car from now on, they will be savoxx.

You can really go wrong with purchasing Hitec, KO Propo, Savoxx, Ace from my experience. Haven't run Futaba so no words for them, but I would personally stay away from JR due to their customer service.

I always want over 200 oz and under .15 transit for steering. Only need about 120 oz for throttle and as fast as I can get.
