    RE: servo

    Find the specs on your servo
    (Did that for you)
    Modulation: Analog
    Torque: 6.0V: 86.0 oz-in (6.19 kg-cm)
    Speed: 6.0V: 0.20 sec/60°
    Weight: 1.59 oz (45.0 g)
    Dimensions: Length:1.60 in (40.6 mm)
    Width:0.80 in (20.3 mm)
    Height:1.43 in (36.3 mm)
    Motor Type: Brushed
    Gear Type: Plastic

    Look for a replacement with the same rough case size and at least the torque and speed you have, maybe a tad more.

    Hitec HS-5625MG

    Motor Type: 3 Pole Ferrite
    Bearing Type: Dual Ball Bearing
    Speed (4.8V/6.0V): 0.17 / 0.14
    Torque oz./in. (4.8V/6.0V): 110 / 131
    Torque kg./cm. (4.8V/6.0V): 7.9 / 9.4
    Size in Inches: 1.59 x 0.77 x 1.48
    Size in Millimeters: 40.39 x 19.56 x 37.59
    Weight ounces: 2.11
    Weight grams: 59.82


    Doesn't mean this would be a good replacement. I would think it would be but there might be better, I didn't spend much time looking. You can also do a RCU search for "traxxas 2055" or "traxxas 2055 replacement" to see what others might have already said.

    RE: servo

    One other thing to watch out for when you change brands of servos. Different brands turn in different directions with the same change in input pulse width so you may have to change the reverse switch in your transmitter to get the same reaction from the new servo.

    Or just reprogram the servo in the reverse direction and be done with it.

    RE: servo

    easier said than done
    With the majority of servos it takes more than reprogramming
