Default Looking for good metal gear or digital servo for TC5?

I just got this killer TC5 roller for $150 and I need a servo. I know brushless is the way to go but looking for one around $40 or less. I had a spektrum I believe a z590(I think I spelled it wrong) for like $15 in my old CF Cyclone and that was fine but didn't know of a cheap way to go about getting one. Can you shoot me some really good servo's for a short course racing track? Thanks....

I was told a Hitec 645 MG was a good servo for $35 at my LHS. I even saw this 5645 MG servo too. Any issues with these two or they bad one.

Hello,

I currently am using a 645 in my TC and it works ok, I would really prefer something a big faster but for now it will work. When you get on a tight section or very technical section of the track it can be a little slow to react. However sometime to fast of a servo will actually make you twitch as well.

I have always been very happy with Hitec servos and choose them first.

Just my -98 cents worth.

Hope it helps

Tru that. You can't beat the price on them either. I think like $28 shipped. Thanks for the response. Anyone else?

A buddy of mine is wondering if that 645 servo will be good for a slash?

Yes, this servo would be good for a slash as well. It provides 133oz of Tq at 6 volts which is good, on smaller vehicles such as TCs and such you can get away with 100oz of TQ or less and pick up a bit more speed in the server, but with trucks you want at least 120+ oz of TQ. The 645 is just a great all around server, it is not really the best for any application, but it s great for many if that makes since...

I actually just got the 645 for $28 but I believe I may go with that airtronics for my TC5 and the 645 for my slash and sc10. Thanks a ton!
