Good servo for 1/8th scale buggy/truggy
 
What is a good servo that won't break the bank to use for 1/8th scale. I would lke metal gear/ball bearing and maybe even digital.


If its good enough I have a Hitec HS-645mg I could take out of my Blitz 1/10th scale and use. Its got 133 oz.in at 6v. If I use this one I need to find a screw for a Hobbico metal gear servo http://www3.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin/wti0001p?&I=LXNRP9 , any clue where to get one?

A traxxas 2075 might work alright for you. It has 125 oz inches of torque and ball bearings. Its not metal geared, but you can get them for under $20 if you are wanting something cheap. Im not sure on the speed of it. If you are bashing it should be fine. For racing it may not be as good.

I might try to race it but somehow I don't think the Traxxas servo would be holding me back. :)

Anybody know what size screw my Hobbico servo takes???

I know what you mean:D Also forgot to mention the traxxas servo is digital and waterproof. I have one is my associated MGT and it works well enough in it. I think it would be better in a buggy with the smaller tires though

Good idea, the Hobbico servo is a good 1/10th scale servo: digital, ball bearing, metal gear, 83oz.in @ 6v. I might as well swap them out. In the meantime I figured out the Hobbico takes a 2.6mm x 8mm machine screw. I wonder if Lowe's would carry such a thing. Of course I have 6mm (a bit short) and 15mm here at the house. lol

Ordered here: http://www.microfasteners.com/catalo...cts/METSCM.cfm

It just so happens Hi-tec HS-645MG takes the same size as the Hobbico.
