View Full Version : Rustler Servo gear broken, parts available?
02-12-2001, 05:20 AM
My son broke one of the steering servo gears in our car (actually not a big crash, but the servo saver did not do its job). I cannot find any replacement servo parts in the part list, anyone know if servo-spares are available?

ok... umm, at the price a tower hobbies or futaba or traxxas servo costs, its usually less expensive to buy a new servo, and use the other one for parts, thats usually what i end up doing. better yet, upgrade to a more expensive servo that has metal gears, they last virtually forever, for only slightly more money

I have stripped 2 Traxxas servos and 1 Futaba servo. If your looking at getting a new servo. Save a little more and go with the Hitec 605Mg. You'll be able to tell a ton of difference in turning. Plus its got dual ball bearings and metal gears. This servo is only $40.00. It is well worth it.

I had a big problem with my T3 stripping out servo gears (3 times in 15 runs)... so I picked up the Hitech 625mg servo.. no problems since... a little on the pricey side of things.. but my T3 has never cornered so good, I have better control over it then the POS stock one. It has lasted twice as many runs without stripping a gear yet, then that other one.

Tower hobby has replacement gear set its part
number LXJM20 only costs $3.89. I've been checking out FMA servos....they have pretty good prices...has anybody used FMA servos yet?

You could call Traxxas and maybe get one for free. I replaced my gears on my servo and havent had problems since.

you can get a replacement futuba s3003, it is basically the same servo. Plus most lhs carry replacement gears for it.
