    replacment servo's

    hi
    my throttle servo has started to stutter and ive already gone through a steering servo and the reverse servo so i was wondering what is a good replacement for the throttle servo? and a good servo for a single servo conversion?

    Savox sc-0251 is an excellent servo for steering. One will be all you need.
    For Throttle look for a servo that is very fast and has good response time. The throttle one doesn't really need to be metal geared.

    I have a savox 1258tg that I am using for throttle. Haven't run it yet, but like the fast response time. Also have a 1256tg for steering and it was worth it.

    i use a hitec 645 mg works well i dont see the point in putting a 222oz servo in unless its for steering slight overkill if u ask me but evry1 has they preferances

    never had much luck with hitec servos
    if you have a newer revo which has 2x2075 servos for the steering thats 250 oz of torque so the savox servo would be a good choice if you didnt want to spend close to $80 on one servo

    both actually, my steering servos are working fine, for now but I've already had to replace 1 and my throttle servo is on the way out i think, and ive probably only ran about 10 tanks through it, so i figured id upgrade them all now with better quality ones.

    i just put hitec 645mg in for my throttle working good not had any issues and it cost like 30 bux it was a direct fit and didnt have to worry about changing servo horns either i dont know if savox are the same also are u going single servo for steering or u sticking with double servo?

    i was planning to go single servo, less to go wrong and less to buy, what sort of horn will i need to get for the throttle?

    savox is 25 spline like the stock and futaba,hitec is like 24 spline,while it fits it will eventally strip the horn/servosaver
