Default alternate gear for ds1015 servo

HI
I stripped two ace servo gears on last race season. I'm totally happy with the performance of the servo but there is one plastic gear in it that can be stripped. Each time I had to bought a total gear set for replacing one plastic gear. Is there any metal replacement for this gear from another servo gear set?

I can't say 100% if the gears are the same but the Associated XP 1015 is the same servo, look at the gear set for the XP and see if it's the same as the Ace. I run the XP and they are a tough servo..

they are identical so associated servo has one plastic gear too.

My guess then would be that your screwed, they're tough servos but will still have their limits. I think every servo gear set has a plastic gear in them to provide a breaking point....

I know the plastic gear is for saving the servo motor but I think ds1015 is a very high quality and powerfull servo and will be much more durable with all metal gears. There are many servos with all metal gear which are not better than ds1015.

If you keep blowing the plastic gear, the pinion on the motor is likely fubared.


I run mine in in a 1/8 buggy W/O a servo saver.

I stripped two times at one race season but it was two different ds1015. I've three of them.

Agreed, after 6 sets of gears I changed brands and never any trouble since. I have even stripped gears in my 1/10 scale with the ace/ae servos. No more plastic gears for me.

Did anyone try to adapt another gear from another servo instate of the plastic gear?
