Great deal on a great servo! I use this in my T.O.P. Photon and I have absolutely no complaints. Low profile design doesn't hang over the lipo chassis like a standard would and the lead wires are really long if you plan on using this in anything other than a touring car. It is strong and fast. Some people have complained in other forums about noise.. which really don't matter when you're tearing through the infield of a race track. In comparison to the Futaba S9551 servo, I would say that they are both ideal for 1/10 Touring car applications. The Savox is a little faster on paper and in the specs.. but in reality, I can't feel the difference between a couple 1/100's of a second. The Futaba S9551 does seem to have a slightly more fluid/smooth motion to it, but with a price that is around $20 less, how can you nit pick something like that? I definitly recommend this servo and would grab it up when it's available... if you don't I'll be back to get it.
I run this in my 1/10 Electric Dirt Oval car and it is Awesome!!! A lot of guys run this servo in Dirt Oval and I see why. I don't use a servo saver, just an aluminum arm and so far, a few pretty good licks and still going strong!!! Highly recommended for 1/10 on road & dirt oval use.
Great servo! I have ran it in my CEFX Evo a few times, it has plenty of torque and is plenty fast. It centers well. All in all a good sedan servo when you need a low profile servo.
Awesome servo use it in my b44.1, dex 210 and tlr 22
This servo must be for on-road only. Stripped the gears first time on track in my 4x4 buggy tonight. Stripped the gears Monday, bought a new one at my lhs, and stripped them again 1st battery pack! I'm running a servo-saver.
It was open practice both times and happened from collisions with larger vehicles (hack fest) but they weren't what I would call excessive.
Sucks because I love Savox. The 1267 MG, 1268 MG, and 2273 SG are the best servos I've run and would recommend them to anyone willing to wire them up with the power they need. They are really fast and powerful.
But this servo has failed me twice in the same week, so I'll be selling them after I repair them with new gearsets.
On-road this servo is probably great. It has decent power and it's fairly quick. But I have to give it a bad review because breaking twice in 1 week is unacceptable.
If Savox makes a beefier low-profile servo I'll get it, but until then I'll be running the Radiopost HV HD low-profile titanium-hybrid servo. 305 Oz/in and .07 transit time @ 7.4V! Blows this thing out of the water. I'll just be happy if it stays together.
