    Forget paying 140.00 dollars for a servo. Buy a Hitec 7955 for steering on ebay for 90.00 and find a 7965 or 7985 or 7925 for throttle/brake. I would stay away from the hs645 and so on because they are sport servos with plastic drive gear. Go with the 7900 series or the older 5900 series. They are high performance meaning more orings for water resistance, more ball bearings and G2 circuitry for faster response.

    I have a Hitec 5955tg for steering and a hitec 5645mg for throttle/brake that is a great combo in perfect condition, if your interested make me an offer. Otherwise go on ebay and you could get both of them for about a $100.

    although i am a JR guy myself.. i have to agree with this statement... on the servos... the reason i am JR fan is that i had a JR 8800T for throttle and 8800S for throttle brake for 4 years.... form since the 2.5 straight up to the 3.3.. and beat the crap out of it... and they did not die.. they just got worn out and became sluggish... but i have seen hitec performance and also Futaba... but hitec is the servo to get for the price

    Fella's, take a look at spektrums new servos ( S6040 .08 / 166 oz. @ $80 )..... ( S6030 .15 / 278 oz. @ $85 ). I think JR / Spektrum are using these to replace the 8800 series.

    I have upgraded to Hitec 7955TG for steering and 5645MG for T/B.
    Then I bought a Losi truggy and the servos is now on that one, still holding up and doing a good job. Not to pricey either!

    I ran the 7955 for steering and the 965 for throttle/brakes. It was my favorite combo....is there better out there...yes. But it worked very well for me.

    +1 both are excellent servos. I run the 965 in my slash 4x4 and its more than enough and the speed is fast.

    Also to be honest, I like the traxxas digtal 2075's because you can get them for real cheap and they actually work pretty good and have decent speed. been running one in my erevo BE and after 5 months now of jumping and bashing I just stripped agear in it. A 4$ fix and its good to go.
