Default truggy steering servo options?

My hitec 5645mg went out and I need a new one. I have heard excellent things about Savox and looked at theirs. This is the one I am interested in for its torque rating:

http://www.amazon.com/Savox-SC-0251-...ds=savox+servo


Consequently it is a lil bit taller then a standard servo and this wlil mean my servo horn will not be on the same line as the steering assembly. I can mount the arm linkage on the bottom of the horn to get it closer but it still will not be 100%.

Will this be OK or will it cause me problems?

thanks

Stick with hitec. Tower has the 7950th on sale right now. 486 oz and perfect speed for steering.

All depends on budget. KO are at the too but well worth the $$$, the savox work well. Protek might be another consideration but I have no experience with them.

Protek 330T on sale at Amain for 69.99 I believe. Over 300 oz. of torque.

Never had a servo problem with Protek, good quality for the price.

Send in your old one to Hitec for service. They will fix it or replace it for free. Get a Hitec 7955 for your steering. When you get back your 5645 use it as a throttle servo or keep it as a back up. Or just sell it.
