I will be testing the BH9037 this weekend in 1/8 Buggy. I have heard some good things about SRT and the price is great. They look and feel great and super quiet with no slop at all. We will see how it goes this weekend.

The BH9022 and 9027 are way too fast for off-road buggy and that is most likely why the gears strip from my experience in 1/8 since 2001. I have stripped gears in every servo brand I have tested - Futaba, Airtronics, and Hitec. I would only recommend the BH9032 & 9037 for buggy and truggy. You might be able to get away with the BH9027 for E-buggy since most ESC put out only 6v and the races are only 10 minutes long. But with the 9027, the holding power on high speed sweepers will not be as good due top the low torque, so you might experience pushing on power.

Looks like the brand is just getting started and may have started sponsoring some drivers around the world to get the brand name out there:
Newsroom - SRT
So it looks like Dialed Hobbies has them in stock now!

The BH9032 and BH9037 are the best for 1/8 buggy and truggy. I have used them for 3 months now and they work great. They use very little battery power so my servos stay fast the whole A-main.

They have been amazing for me. I use BH9037 for steering and BH9032 for throttle and have used them for6 months with no issues. After a 30 min a-main, the lipo rx pack only takes about 380mah, so they use hardly any power. They stay fast the whole main event.

We have sold a lot of them and no complaints yet, just emails saying how impressed they are with the quality considering how cheap they are.

We have replacement gears in stock also in case 1 ever strips a gear, but we stock titanium geared servos only, so that should never be a problem. We are not stocking the aluminum geared servos because those won't hold up for 1/8 scale based on common sense.

I'm interested in trying out the BH9037 for 1/8 Electric Buggy and Truggy, however the specs say 0.16 sec/60 @ 6V which seems kinda slow, I've heard most pros recommend speed in the 0.08 to 0.12 sec/60 range but I see the BH9037 can go as fast as 0.13 sec/60 at 8.4V...

What voltage are you running in your nitro?

I think my XR8 ESC can go up to 7.4V so that might help me get the servo speed a little faster.

For E-buggy I would use the BH9032 and turn the voltage all the way up. I use a lipo, so it runs on 8.4v.

IMO, if you use a high speed servo in 1/8, the gears will strip out. I ran for Hitec for many years and once I switched to high torq, I never broke another servo gear. Before it happened every few months.

Adam Drake has been Hitec's #1 driver for the last 10 years and he used these: HSB-9381TH Full Metal Case, Ultra Torque, Brushless, Titanium Gear Servo | HITEC RCD USA

Which is the same specs as the BH9037 I use. He used the HSB-9380TH before that and the HS-7950 before that which all have a speed of .17. I used a HS-7950 since 2012, so the BH9037 feels exactly the same except it doesn't get slower as the race goes on.

Also the HSB-9381 is the only all aluminum brushless servo Hitec makes, because it is the best for 1/8th scale. The BH9037 is the same except 50% less.

sounds good, I like the specs on the BH9032... I see they are 0.12 s/60 @ 7.4V so I'll give that a go, thanks!

So I ran the servo in my eBuggy yesterday for the first time and it was great, I actually kept the BEC on 6V just to see how it felt and the car was actually more stable and easier to drive with the slightly slower speed I decided to keep it on the 6V setting. I think I'll add another one of these servos to my cart for my next order to put in my eTruggy next!

Thanks DialedHobbies!

SRT servos are legit, I went from 95% average consistency to 98%+ average consistency since swapping out to SRT which is a slower servo than what I've ran in the past and I never would've dreamed of making the podium with a bunch of chassis sponsored drivers, let alone actually take TQ and the Win in the 40+ division this past weekend. There were some other key tuning changes that I made, but I truly believe the slower SRT servo really helped improved my consistency the most, thanks SRT and Dialed Hobbies!

I wish there were more feed back on the servos before I sign on with these servos. Being reliable is one thing but, I have a problem with sending them back to the UK for repair and what will be the turn around time? I see Tom Yardy from the UK uses them, but he drives 1/10, totally different animal compared to running them in 1/8 off-road
