Anyone running this servo? How's it holding power? I just ordered one, my 900s feels like it's getting weak / fading.

Looking forward to hearing your experience, I love my Hitec 1000 but most of the guys I run with are unwilling to spend that much on a servo setup.

The specs on this servo look great, I don't race, so speed isn't that big of a deal.

I ran the servo but the gears broke after one round of qualifying.
My servo saver is to tight.
What is your setting on the saver ?

Besides my issue the servo has great holding and is very fast. My spektrum 9020 servos have nothing on this hitec servo and half the cost.

You want to set the servo saver as loose as you can to help the servo live this setting on a stock truck will be different than a metal monster
The stock truck is the best on the servo
Just because it gives and doesn't transfer the shock to the servo
Set it for your track
A hard packed track it needs to be set tighter stop the push from the weight of the truck it needs to be tightened up help the spring from bending under the load of the truck
A loose track a looser setting won't be as noticeable and the servo will live longer

What do you have yours set to on the collar. I had mine locked down but went back to around 4-5 mm
I see the losi 5B is like 1-2 mm

Mine is tight and if I drive it it won't live but chad drives it and he doesn't wreck so it lives
But I'm running a hitec s1000 and it's a monster on my truck on my buggy
I was running a stock losi steering servo but I replaced it with the new spectrum
But to be truthful I have not got to run or race it
But it looks killer from what I saw of it at the races
Art has had them for almost two years and his were the test ones
So I got one of the first ones out of them and it's sat on the table this year
Money got tight and I didn't get to race this year
Two many irons in the fire but hopefully that will change in 2017
That sounds right for a heavy truck
I just let chad drive and I tight it up at the track as it's needed with a pair of pliers a little at a time
I know this is hard to believe but the big servo is the best upgrade you can do to the truck barn none
At best the stock truck has a push in it that you can't get out no matter what you do
The S1000 makes the truck loose in the back
It will turn in at any speed and hold its line in the turn
