Default Need a new servo for my savage...

Im on my third servo in this truck in about 2 months & i have no idea why. The servo's just keep locking up. My servo saver is set properly but im not sure what is going on.. I keep getting like $25 spektrum servo's so im thinking about spending a few more bucks and getting something decent. Waterproof is a plus but not necessary, metal gears is a must. It doesnt have to be the fastest thing in the world im just a basher looking for something reliable. Any recommendations around the $40-$60 range? Thanks.

The Savage is a pretty large truck and really does need a strong, durable servo. I'd like to push you more towards a servo like the HS-7955TG because it's a titanium geared digital coreless servo that has proven itself to be more than up to the task of 1/10 scale bashing trucks and 1/8 scale racing trucks and buggies. It's a bit above your price range, but it's worth it to pay a bit more for the best servo you can get.

+1 Something in the 300 (or more) oz-in torque range for a 1/8 scale 4wd monster truck would be best.

Amen brother. I can tell you it only took me once to skimp on a servo (actually a bulk pack). Not a fun experience. Also, it's digital or nothing for me anymore. I'll sacrifice a little bit more power consumption any day.

That will do fine. Plenty of torque I suppose. I'm sure the some of the Savages came with servos producing only mediocre torque. Just try and find some reviews of the servo mentioned. Are they power hungry little critters?
