    you just need a single servo.


    You want to look for a metal gear servo with high torque (200oz or more) and the faster the better.

    I use a hitec HS-7955TG myself....has worked great for two years now and puts the stock traxxas servos to shame on transit time and torque.

    Each 2075 servo is rated at 125oz of torque. So, technically, you should be looking for a servo with AT LEAST 250oz to match the stock setup. With that said, im sure you could get away with something slightly less, but theres no need when lots of high power options are available.

    I run single servos in all my Revo based vehicles:
    -Summit: Futaba S9157 (425oz, .14)
    -ERBE: JR Z9100T (300oz, .15)
    -Revo RR: Hitec 7955MG (333os, .15)

    They all have the same setup. Aluminum servo arm, GH aluminum single sided steering arm, washer mod to the servo saver. This setup has proven to be VERY strong. But I think one of the more important benefits to going with a single servo is that generally speaking, the good ones will be much faster than the dual 2075 setups. Even the servos im using at .14 and .15 are WAY faster than the 2075's and it makes a difference.

    When I recently drove your Summit I could not believe how much faster the steering response was over the stock steering setup in my Summit. In addition the steering response in your Summit was more accurate. Definitely a win-win!
