    I'm running the Savox servo...post #42 without a BEC. I'm am really impressed at how well this servo handles.

    I'm running a hitec 7955tg stock esc working great.going to want to upgrade to a aluminium horn and bell crank
    As well to be able to use the extra torque.the stock plastic is a bit too flexy
    For hi torque use.

    The for sure stuff is servo horn(aluminium) and most change the steering bell crank to aluminium as well.
    Just to remove the flexing of the plastic.
    Depending on what you upgrade in the bell crank,may need a washer to stiffen the servo saver spring.

    Have a look at post #48 and post #55. That will give you a fair idea of whats needed and should see you right .

    I just purchased the Hitec 7950TH a few weeks ago it can handle 7.4 volts giving 486 oz/in but I'm running it through my original esc which provides 6 volts giving me 403 oz/in. When I put my RokLox 40 series with beadlocks on, it throws them around with out a problem. I one happy Summit owner

    I've been using it for 3-4 months now. No complaints here. It's very powerful, that's for sure.

    I went with a Futaba S9157 with an aluminum servo horn, aluminum servo arm, aluminum bellcrank mount and a washer under the servo saver. I run the stock EVX2 with a Dewalt motor and NO external BEC and have never had a single problem or glitch at all. This servo fits great and has WAY more torque than youll ever need. It aint cheap, but good costs $$
