the throttle servo failed on me this weekend.i think it is time to upgrade.what do you guys think for both throttle and steering servo upgrades.i have a futaba s3003 on the shelf that I can use till I get a better one,i don't think the s3003 is a very strong servo for the truck.any suggestions are appreciated.

Older thread I know, but I use a Spektrum s9020 for steering in my MT, I felt it needed the extra torque for the huge wheels. It is a beast servo at 7.4v lipo. I use a Hitec d845wp in my Dunerunner which at half the cost of the Spektrum with a little less torque works great in that application. Which leads me to believe the Hitec d845 would be a great choice for the XT. It is powerful, again I use a lipo rx pack with it. In both rigs I use the same throttle servo. The Savox sw0230, They are waterproof also and lipo capable.

Does it fit in the stock servo mount or did you have to use the Futaba mount?

The Spektrum and Hitec steering servos need the Futaba mount to fit. I had to drill and countersink holes for the mount on the Dunerunner, where the MT already had the holes drilled.

Thanks
I've been looking at the HiTec 5755
Any experience with that one?

No Sir I haven't. I have tried the Hitec 5765. One major downfall it isn't waterproof an unexpected splash of water took it out. So I went with waterproof servos there after.
