"Never say Never"
I believe it's also called "murphy's law".
My son (38 years young) and I were bashing on our new lay out track when his steering servo gave out. ( he has a non Traxxas SCT)
I had a spare Traxxas servo (2075) and gave it to him to use. I told him I have [B]"never" [/B]had to replace a steering servo in any of my Slashes. And while he was making the repairs I contuned to pratcice on the new lay out when..... murphy's law went into effect... The steering servo broke in my Slash...
Just saying, never say "[B]never[/B]"
Gotta hate when that happens :D
Orca44 what part did you break in your servo.
I broke my 2075 today.
My output gear snapped. Not happy about that break
Man that's a funny story... Funny, I've never had a steering servo go out on my Slash... (Knocking on wood very loudly) :lol:
my first traxxas 2075 that came with my slash started having major issues holding center after about 9 months so i swapped in an old but similar spec futaba i had laying about, which cought fire, and was rapidly replaced with the spectrum servo i have now. and hat kinda lead to a completely not waterproof slash.
The rebuild kit with gears and bearings is only $4 for the 2075 if that helps ease the pain LOL
I have a spare so I won't need a spare.............if you know what I mean LOL
Thank goodness this wasn't some kinda Justin bieber styled slash or something lol. That's the first thing I thought of when I saw the topic title. Sorry to hear about your servo. Good thing they make rebuild kits so cheap these days!
I don't know what part(s) in the servo failed as I have not taken it apart yet.... I did order the rebuild kit and should be at my LHS on Tuesday.
My son gave me back the one I loaned him and I have put that one in ye old Slash.
While I was at the hobby shop I did pick a HiTEC HS-646wp, which is water proof with metal gears, I mainly purchased it as a another back up if needed (on sale for $32), or put in my sand car build. It's specs are a little better than the stock Slash 2075.

That's what I bought and the gear I needed broke.. :thumbdown:
The Traxxas rebuild kit came in and at only $4 picked up two to have one as a spare.
Installed the new gear set and all is good. So now have a spare servo and a spare gear set for future use....LOL
Now to remember to "never say never" if ya know what I mean...
