so is the RC model hobby shop any good, it's an online hobby shop, they ship their stuff from HK.

I need to know if it's a good business because i want to get my servo from there because it's a lot cheaper.

http://shopping.rcmodel.hk/index.php

Please, let me know if you shopped there and how was your experience?

I want to buy that servo there.

oh god, something always goes wrong.

I think I'll just get it at HK online hobby shop. There is no way i'll spend $100 on it. It's either tax or it's either shipping if i buy it here in the US.

You can call to an out of state hobby shop and order it. That way you won't have to pay sales tax. And shipping from HK is pricey.

Try Elite Hobby Shop in West Covina, I am sure it will be under $100.

Why just not buying another Z590 and save for something else? You dont need absolutely a digital servo on steering.

The only servos to buy are KO or Futaba the Hitec servos are shit.

Don't buy the HS5625 it is crap.

I had three and would never have brought one again if it wasn't for warrenty.

I have just brought six KO 2343 and they are great. Cost a lot but if you want the best then you need to pay for it.
They were just under 200 each.

I am running two cars and these should last for quite a few years.

I plan to have these servos for at least 4 years.

If my math is correct they work out a cheaper if they last 3 years.

You do the maths.

If I need cash I could also sell one that is brand new.

Don't waste your time with hitec, buy futaba for cheap servos $40 or less, or futaba or KO for digitals

I have also used servo with ABS standards just stop working the hitec's didn't last either with or without ABS.

Futaba digital 18 months using ABS still working great.

Is ABS not banned in sanctioned events. It is here in the UK I believe.
