Default New Throttle/Brake Servo

So I was full throttle into my Rampage MT today, toying with a friend... Half way back on the full throttle pass it just comes to a skidding halt, the dang throttle/brake servo crapped out on me... I wasnt mad, it gave me an excuse to improve another part, I went with the same servo I use for steering on my nitro t-maxx's, A spektrum S6020, I belive it has 144oz of tq. Much better now that its fixed...

Just thought I'd share an improvement with ya'll, I seen the hi-tech servos but this spektrum is a proven winner in my department and had more tq then the hi-tech's that were available to me at my lhs....

Shoot, if it's working for you, that's all that matters. I don't use Spektrum simply because I'm not a Horizon Dealer. Their stuff seems just fine at the track. I'm going to give a hexfly a chance with the XB that will be here next week, I like Hitech, and have one sitting on the shelf, but I'd like to find a less expensive one, so we'll give the hexfly a chance.

Another buddy will only use Futaba, and their good but way too expensive, probably my only complaint, no one makes a good servo for less then $35 bucks.

It's like cars. I like Dodge and Ford, the lady likes Chevy. It's all good. Let us know in a month or so how it's going, maybe someone runs into a deal on them later on, or would prefer to to use the Spektrum.

I love my spektrum servo, I use them for sterring on my nitro t-maxx's, They hold up very well and I have not to date had a problem with them (6 months or so now) its just new to use one as a throttle/brake servo instead of steering, I will probably use the hi-techs for my dual steering servos when they crap out...
