So it sounds and feels like the servo (part # 2080) on my son's 1/16 Grave Digger has some stripped/chipped gears inside, as I can hear a grinding sound coming from the servo when I go full left turn lock. When I manually move the steering linkage as well, I can feel the slipping or grinding in the servo as well.
Is there a better servo that I can swap in for the OEM servo? Maybe something with metal gears that is more durable? Or should I just get another OEM servo for $20 and pray it holds up for a while?
Looking at Amazon.com, the 2080 OEM servo is $21 shipped to my door. There is one made by Bastens that looks to be an aluminum housing with metal gears on Amazon, and it is $50 shipped but not sure if it is waterproof...
Thanks in advance for your advices!
