    Exclamation Blackout XTE PRO: Upgrade or replace servo HX-15CS? *Locked up*

    So.. earlier today I went outside and started rc'ing. Then within few minutes, the truck stopped turning.
    I opened up the truck cover, I noticed the servo won't turn at all. I tried many suggestions but nothing help.
    I assume something is wrong with the servo.

    Now I'm wondering should I buy another same servo (HX-15CS - splashproof) or get a different one (better- waterproof)?
    The area I live gets a lot of rain/sleet/snow so not running on the snow is really not possible. Any suggestions?
    Is it possible to keep everything the same and put in a new different servo? My concern is would it fit?

    Just to be clear I'm talking about steering.


    *Update: I went ahead and bought another hx-15cs servo on eBay (local) just so I have one. I'm still interested in upgrading (waterproof) servo.

    The blackout XTE Pro is a great truck, I have one myself, but like all redcats (and to be honest most rtr kits) the stock servo is not the best, and can do with an upgrade, I had the stock traxxas waterproof one in there and for bashing that was enough, currently I have a hi-tec waterproof in there right now, I forget which servo exactly but its been great, only thing is that weird servo saver setup they have doesnt fit, so i just bolted the servo horn straight to the arm

    I have since bought 3 servos - stock servo, Savox SC-1256TG (current), and Emax ES3005 (backup if needed). I got aluminum horn and steering linkage to go with the savox servo. I have also bought some bigger complete wheels/tires: 5in and 5.5in (the biggest).
