Default my steering servo keeps crappin out on me!!

Alright!!!! so i just bought a couple of hpi trophy 3.5 buggies last week. now i understand the steering servos that usually come with an rtr dont last long. however it seems like everytime i go to run my car i strip the gears... ive gone through two stock servos and two traxxas 2075 servos... my hobby dealer recomended i get the traxxas but they just dont seem to hold up.. so what should i throw in my buggy for it to be rugged,strong, and fast?... i also have the steering so it doesnt bind up whatsoever...

Default 1/8 buggy servo

I personelly have a 7955 in mine. I run it on 7.4 lipo and that gives you [email protected] inoz and metal gears. I've been able to get them for $60 used off rc tech. I have used an airtronics servo(don't remember the #) [email protected] MG. I think the traxxas servo is around 110 inoz. Not really heavy enough for a buggy in my opinion. These servo's are $100 new, sorry but quality is pricey.

stop using cheap servos and get a nice metal gear servo

look at this if you dont want to spend to much $$$

or look at some hitec, savox or other quality brand if you dont mind spending more money.

edit: make sure the servo saver is also set up correctly.

Agreed. You need metal gears on the steering.
