If you are looking for decent servos that won't break the bank, I would look at SAVOX. They have some good servos. Hitecs are a bit more but offer a year longer warranty and JR's offer a 3 year warranty

For the pics and specs definatly Savox. I have just been using them for a couple months now but they seem to work well and they are the right price.

Until last week I was running XP 1015 steering / XP 1313 throttle and had zero issues.

Upgrading to Savox servos though, same spline as the XPs but are a touch lighter and a bit better specs, going with SC-1256TG for steering and SC-1258TG for throttle.

FYI Savox has a special offer going.. Send in your old and get a new one of your choice for 20 bucks off...

Look in the thread in this forum under Radios and electronics or whatever it's called to find the link to the Savox website..

I personally prefer the titanium-geared Hitecs, but with this Savox deal you can get a 1258 for $43 or something.... I'd run it on gas and steering in an RC8B, maybe even a T..

Savox are good for their price. I personally like the Hitec 7955 however.

In my race buggy i use hitec but i just got a basher 1/8 on road and put 2 savox servos in it. for the price you will not find better. you want speed and power for 1/8. you can not skimp in the servo department of you will end uo spending more
