    Steering servo recommendation?

    Should I just replace the stock servo or upgrade to something with a steel or titanium gears?

    It just depends on what you want. I would just replace unless the gears if they are broken. The stock servos are actually pretty great servos and will last a while. I ran mine for 4+ years and replaced the gears maybe 5 times a piece.

    The main reason I upgraded was that I needed the servos in other trucks. When I cannabalized them it allowed me to upgrade the E-revo to something much better.

    I went with a Hitec 7954

    How about 417oz.@7.4v for $17.50. Price per ounce a better deal and no glitching. Or you can use 2 x 417= 834oz for $35.

    I run two Futaba BLS152 brushless servos with a total of 860.6 oz. No comparison when it comes to steering precision, response and reliability.

    Do you run these in a your revo? Have you ran that brand? Ive never heard of solar.... but I know plenty of people who run these Savox`s or hitecs.

    Show me a revo/summit tested/accredited servo thats a better deal.
