    Are these better?

    Hey guys,

    After fiddling around with my T-Maxx, I wondered if these spare Servo's are better. They are Futaba S3003 from another truck.

    I don't know the specs on them but I have thought about switching out my steering servo to see if its better.

    My truck is a T-Maxx 2.5 Model 4910.

    RE: Are these better?

    those are plain jane servos.
    I dont think they are any better than the stock 2055s
    grab some 2075s
    or a set of mg996r's (my fav for low priced, high torque servos)

    I ran a Futaba 3003(or was it the 3004 same thing either way) in a 1/12th scale truggy
    The servo lasted 2 minutes before it stripped
    The truggy probably weighs 1/2 of what the maxx does so think about how long they would last .
    With great speed comes greater repair bills.

    Just looked up the specs. The Traxxas servos are better.

    The s3003 servos are for low torque situations. I run a S3010 in my 1/8 buggy, which it has 90oz/in. of torque, which really isn't enough on paper, but it handles fine for now.
    -Aerodynamics and turbos are for people who can't build motors.

    S3003's are great long lasting reliable servo's when used properly, we use them alot on mid sized planes and you can use them for throttle but they are way too weak for steering on a t-maxx.
    If you dont know what your doing, its best to do it quickly.
