    Steering Servo

    I just purchased a slayer about two weeks ago. The truck is a blast. The problem i have is the gears in the steering servo keep stripping. I talked to Traxxas costomer service and they were real cool and sent me another servo. It did the same thing right away. I am kinda new to this stuff. Is there a servo that will bolt right up to the slayer that would stop this? I would like to get the cheapest one I could get that would work. Thanks.

    Look at HighTec, one of their metal geared servos should stop the problem. Thats what I run in mine.

    Hitec HS645MG is an awesome servo for the price. around $30.00... I'd also check for binding and things along that line. I've personally never had a problem with steering servos, always throttle... Give the front end a good once over...

    The Hitec 645MG is a great servo but the stock servo horn won't fit you will need this to get it to work.
    I wanted to put a really cool signature but I ran

    You can use the half horn that comes packaged with the servo also. Thats what I used and if you do the steering mods it provides more throw for greater steering angle...

    Was you able to tell a difference when you changed throttle servos as in quicker response and being able to brake later?
