First off, Hitec's warranty service is second to none. Second off, you won't need it like you do with JR's.

As for the servos, I am running the 7950 for steering and 7940 for throttle. IMO this combo can't be beat. Hitec servos are the toughest, best performing servos on the market. I'm sure you will love them

Check out Troy Built Models for your Hitec Servo needs!
I bought 2 HS-7950TH (listed on TBM site as TG, but i recieved TH) for $109 each, they had 154 of them in stock!
At 486 oz/in of torque at 7.4 volts and Hitecs great service, i may never have to buy another servo again! (i like to think so anyhow)

That truly is the best combo on the market.

I'm looking at going hitec as well. Do most run the 7940 at throttle? I'm weary of speed servos at throttle in the losi...they seem to burn up quick. I think a torque one would last longer but i don't want a slow servo at throttle so its a catch 22. What is everyone doing?

Analog servos are the ticket for throttle duty in a Losi 1.0. But most want digital servos..so..
To many fanboys to "make" brand recommendations..but I would give the spectrum S6030 Digital Servo a look..278oz. cost is $84 at most hobby shops..
