Default Futaba Servos

Am looking at some new servos for my 1/8 car is any one using the futaba bls177 servos in their 1/8 buggy or truggy as they have a massive 37kg torque

also want to get some of the S9352Hv servos but have read a few people having problems with the plastic case? is it better to get the s9353hv servo instead

Cheers

i had a plastic 9352 case rip the tab off, bu the servo itself is going to this day. the only problem was i couldnt find a case for it anywhere in stock, so have gone to metal case servo's now.

if you can afford it always go metal case, the last thing u want is an expensive servo become useless because a plastic mounting tab breaks

I currently own 4 of the s9352 with plastic case and 2 of them are only 3 weeks old and had to send one back already due to loss of power and response.i love these servos but for the money I was surprised that after only 3 weeks one stopped working all a sudden,hobby services is taken care of it though.i am buying aluminumn cases for them also.

I have been using the S9353's in both buggy and truggy for 2 yrs now and I run 52 weeks per year. Not one issue to-date. Absolutely love them.
