    Best servo

    I am kind of getting tired of the crappy traxxas servo, so what do y'all think is the best servo for the summit? Waterproof would be nice but if not, I can try to waterproof it myself

    Not many servos come waterproof.

    Some have gone dual stock servos without an issue, some have gone dual stock servos with issues; so that is a toss up.
    (biggest issue is that the linkage is not adjustable, so it is possible that you will never get them to stop fighting)

    I chose to go with a single, stronger servo: ******* 390.

    Here is a link to a list of possible servos:

    Cheap plug:
    If you decide to go dual, I have a pair up for sale.
    Whatever it is I just said... I could be wrong.

    I have an 393DMH. It's not so strong as the 390DMH, but slightly faster. The 396DMH is not strong enough for a summit, but very fast.
    Here is a summery:

    390DMH: 5.4 kgs / 0.11 sec
    393DMH: 4.3 kgs / 0.09 sec
    396DMH: 2.5 kgs / 0.06 sec

    It doesn't matter if you buy a *******, Blue Bird or Modelcraft (my brand). They are all the same!!! I bought mine in germany from an well known electronic part seller for the same price as the HK dealer. Just search for the model name (e.g. 390DMH).

    It is a really good servo, but not waterproof. I can recommend PlastiDip. Make it waterproof yourself.

    Awesome sounds good I'll look into those. Thanks guys. Is it hard to put dual servos in? Not the actually putting in, but getting set up and figured out

    Not really hard. Most of the linkage is already there... just need a servo horn and something to go between that and the servo saver.

    Getting them set up takes time... and does not always go right.
    Whatever it is I just said... I could be wrong.
