Questions?? 8ight 1.0 Servos - advice

Just looking for some suggestions for a steering and the throttle servo for a losi 8ight T 1.0.

I've been doing some research on this subject and have mixed feelings.

I've noticed the stock servo's in the 1.0 are the Z650M. What would you guys recommend running? Would this be okay for a throttle servo and maybe i should sped a little bit more money on the steering servo?

Just looking for some advice for trial and error of others.

If your not racing or on a budget, get 2 hitec 5645's and be done with it. should only cost about $80 and they hold up just fine in my losi 8ight's and as a throttle servo on my baja.

Use the thick plastic shims under the throttle servo (even though is says you dont need them) and dremel away the side guard where it comes close to touching the servo so there is no way it could ever touch the bottom of the servo and you should be good to go.

I started looking @ the servo's you suggested.

Should i just bite the bullet and upgrade to a HV servo?


Seemed to be only a few more dollars?

Savox servos. Dont go cheap on servos otherwise you would be spending more replacing them then buying good ones. I had a z650 that only lasted 3 days

Due to the depth and Poole that blow servos in the 8 cars I would use savox 1286's if you want hv and 1256 if you want to run nimh.
