    RE: Brands of waterproof servo's?

    Do you know how many splines are on the servos? I think the traxxas 2075 has 25(same as futaba). They have like 125oz of torque, and they are digital.

    23 spline: KO, JR, Airtronics/Sanwa
    24 spline: Hitec
    25 spline: Futaba, traxxas, hobbico, tower

    Which servo are you looking to replace, Throttle or steering?

    ORIGINAL: dudecat

    both.
    Bummer, I am still running the stock steering servos with not a problem for 3 years now, the 270 throttle pooped out on me at full throttle (bad wreck, tire tracks on the garage door) I replaced it with a spektrum DS821 with no problems either.

    I found out water and stock servo's don't work well together.

    RE: Brands of waterproof servo's?

    I know I have been out of the game for a while, but when I got my LST a few years ago, I used plasti-dip to bombproof the servos. I have had the truck nearly submerged and the servos have never failed. If your old servos are good, I'd give the plasti-dip a shot. Do a search and you'll see the threads. Good luck

    RE: Brands of waterproof servo's?

    I did forget I plasti-dipped all three of mine during a cleaning, but as I said, 3+ years now, and I shy away from no puddle.

    Did you submerge the truck or just splash around, i was concerned about splash up and hitting the servos on landing so I got a losi HD skid plate that covers the steering servos.

    Available for*: $19.99

    RE: Brands of waterproof servo's?

    I have had the truck to just just below the RX case while running through some deep puddles. I rolled the truck into a puddle and got a ton of water into the carb, but the servos stayed safe, but I did get a little water in the RX box. So I sealed that up some more and haven't had any problems.
