    Steering and servo problems

    I have a Short course Rusty its basically a Slash 2wd now. I used the STRC LCG kit and converted my Rusty to a SCT. Anyway i get steering shutter when going around corners. Friday night it was suggested i glue my servo saver which i did and on the last lap of the main after leading the whole race i got a lil squirrelly and brushed the wall and it tweaked my servo. I thought it broke the servo saver but it didnt.

    So a few questions.
    How do i get the steering shutter to stop?
    Whats a good servo for around $40-$50?
    Is Savox SC-0251MG a good servo?
    Specs:

    Dimensions(mm): 40.7X19.6X42.4
    Weight(g): 61.0
    Speed(@4.8V sec/60): .20
    Torque(@4.8V oz-in): 180.5
    Speed(@6.0V sec/60): .18
    Torque(@6.0V oz-in): 222.2
    Gear: Metal
    Bearing: 2BB
    Case: Plastic
    25 Tooth Spline

    or maybe this one its only 25 oz-in less than the 2075 but its .06 sec faster?

    Savox SC-0254MG

    Specs:
    Dimensions(mm): 40.7X19.6X39.4
    Weight(g): 49.0
    Speed(@4.8V sec/60): .19
    Torque(@4.8V oz-in): 86.1
    Speed(@6.0V sec/60): .14
    Torque(@6.0V oz-in): 100.0
    Gear: Metal
    Bearing: 2BB
    Case: Plastic
    25 Tooth Spline

    Futaba makes a metal gear servo with spec's near exact to the stock taxxas for 30 bucks.(S3305).
    I don't have a savox servo,but those spec's are very good,in fact probably more then you need.
    I have heard that the savox is an amp hog and requires a cap to stop the receiver from having brown outs.
    I run a Spectrum in my four by four,and pro 2,but that two would be over kill in my opinion.
    If your a racer at heart tho,you might want to go with the savox.

    I would go with something with 0.15 sec transit time or faster and over 175 oz-in of torque
    Just my opinion
    Especially if your racing

    Check out the spektrum s6040 I run it on all my rigs and I purely race and its a great servo. Billy just put one in his PL slash and I'm sure he would agree that the servo even though on the pricey side is amazing.

    You are right,I paid just shy of seventy bucks for it,but it is a top notch servo,well worth the price.
    I am running a cap,but that's just in case,never tried to see if it was necessary.
    Better safe than a brown out at the wrong time.

    I used to run a cap on my rig as well. But I switched to an airtronics mt-4 and I never needed a cap again. But I do love the servo its taken some beatings and still works like new.
