I am telling you not to use the 1009 for steering. Use a normal size servo in that spot.

Hey Scott,

What is that you say about the strain relief in the wires?? It can't be resolved with a 5 minute dremel?

No.. I had to dremel away so much material that the plastic stripped almost immediately every time I tightened down the servo mounting screws.

Smart.. You will have a much easier time using that servo for steering than the smaller one.

When you get ready to mount the steering servo, use more spacers than the manual suggests. This will make it much easier to connect and disconnect the steering linkage. You make have to test fit once or twice to make certain you dont hit the mid bearing block.

i started installing the servos today,

and i put the airtronics low profile in the steering to see if it fits, and it fitted perfect.

the airtronics is 0.08secs and orion vds2007 is 0.07secs

i must say, the airtronics is notacably alot faster than the orion @ 0.07secs which i thought was weird (since its rated @ 0.08, and is faster than any other servo i ever had)

either way they are both very fast and im impressed!.. faster than the 0.09 ones i had which i thought were ridiculously fast.

only thing is the airtronics is loud!.. and the orion is quiet.

don't have good experience with the savox low-profile servo. bought it coz twas cheaper.
had it in my EP car, and it worked great initially. run about 20-pack and then metal gear inside stripped. didn't have a hard crash, just normal/usual bumps
ask LHS if they have replacement gears, not available yet.
