Default Better servo for savage x?

New here, just got a savage x with a Mach 427 and I also got a savage 2.1 with a 3.5 pico eng.... I belive. Problem one is I have been throughout 2 traxxas steering servos already in the savage x.... Shat is a better servo to run, can I run two? It has 14 mm traxxas rim tires set up ..... Love the Mach easy to tune in . Second issue is trying to get the pico to run better... Anyone know what the factory settings are got that.... Runs really rich... Think the guy messed with the middle jet, any help would be great..... Again new at this so if you need more detail or I missed something let me lnow

Try a Hitec 645MG for your next servo. IF you break that, you'll have to look at something more expensive, but it should hold up to 'reasonable' abuse. I don't know about your engine settings I'm afraid.

Thanks will try that out... I noticed that the traxxas is plastic gears in side, is this other one metal gears?

For the same price as the Hitec 645mg you can pick up the Savox SC-0251mg with 222tq vs the hitecs 100 something oz/tq. I used to run the hitec as my steering servo but they will wear out rather quickly the harder you drive.

2 years ago I switched to the Hobbico CS-170tg 333tq for $84 shipped
