gasser just so you know. I am running the killer RC lipo in mine also. I imagine the big hitech would be another big upgrade, but I consider that racer territory.



There is only a small amount of correction needed when using this servo.

It sure beats the heck out of the stock one, which is like having a drunk driver on board.

I know what you mean Wilson. It was very evident just driving it on the driveway last night. I'll be putting her through the paces on the track today. My friend Danny, who races with me, sold me on it when I seen how well he was getting around the turns.

None with the new servos yet. Forth coming in the near future. Track page has a few throughout..Bearfoot Raceway. Uploading intro and specs on the servo now.

It definitely was a different driving experience on the track yesterday with the new servo. Track conditions were very dry and slippery. Was able to hold a line and swing the ass end of the truck around the turns easier. Never had so much fun drifting...lol.. Very apparent in doing tight donuts as well.

I've got one, but haven't ran it yet. Guys at DDM said it's a perfect alternative to the hitec hs-1k and more than 1/2 the cost....

Did they get hot after 45 mns driving? Can you report back after trying? Thanks

They haven't been getting noticeably hot, at least not in the time it takes to run a full tank. Fading has not been an issue either. Hope this answers your question.

I run a brushless 5ive and put a 100k diff oil in the front and the truck would not turn when I was on the throttle with the stock servo. I was about to buy the 500+ hi tech an saw the 9020 on horizon hobby with a 15% off discount so for 165.00 I went that route and I'm so glad I did. Servo works great

My steering servo is getting weak and ive been thinking of upgrading to the new spektrum as well.
Is everyone still having good luck with these??

I really like mine, I had the big Savox 236 before, stripped the gears after a while tried a new $40 gear set and it didn't fit well then it crapped out anyways 20 min later. Savox are throw away's and the spectrum has been great so far.
