    steering servo for the Pro

    I noticed that my original waterproof high torque traxxas servo working bad.
    I feel it's just not strong enough.

    so can you recommend me for a good cheap servo?

    What about this one:

    I know its preety good, but do you know if it will fit well on my SLAYER Pro?

    Thanks!

    i think this would be a better fit....166 oz torque @ 6v. the stock 2075 is 125 oz

    the problem is that when the car is on table for example, and I ''turn'' to the right(without engine running or something like that)
    the servo doesnt return to his starting position, and you can hear the servo working... so I thought that maybe this is
    why I need to change the steering trim on the controller often...

    Hmmmm... Sound like a weak servo... If you really wanted to go extreme, you could buy another servo 2075, and do the dual steering servo setup like you see on Revos.

    Do you think that this extra servo will do better than one strong servo?

    my opinion is go with one good stronger digital metal gear savox or hitec servo they are bullet proof compared to a 2075 plastic gear..

    I would be about the same... It might be cheaper just to get two servos instede of buying a expensive powerful servo.

    there is nothing wrong with my 2075 servo in my slayer. If his isnt performing, its damaged or defective. The gears are plastic, the mounts are plastic and the servo saver is plastic...except the spring.

    You can poot on a steering system and damage it, anything could alter its performance. something could be loose in your steering system or you could have a bad servo. I would go through and make sure the servo saver is good, nothing worn and double check the servo is tight in the chassis.

    If you want to upgrade the servo, Hi-tec make some good servos with tons of torque at modest prices.

    If you use dual servos, you have to get them set up PERFECT or they will fight each other and damage themselves.

    But it's not always the best option. Alot of guys have found that running two servos can actually be worse than just buying one good one. What happens is you will have one servo fighting the other when they try to center and they end up burning up quicker than just running one. Same as what Redsawacs said.

    Just buy one good one and be done with it.
