Stearing servo?

I blew my steering servo today!!! What is a good servo to get. I have a RC10GT, my friend told me to get a gear reduction servo and said it would last longer and have better steering. What do you think, and what is a good brand?
thanks,

Kevin

Re: Stearing servo?

I don't know which servo is the best.Probably any of the Futaba servos are good.Try and get one that matches the one you have been using though.(If your happy with its performance that is).I tryed to upgrade the steering servo on my Maximum ST and it was a much quicker servo which would make the truck loop out every time I tryed to turn it.Dialing out the steering would not even help.So theres something for you to think about.There are many different ones.Good luck.....

Re: Stearing servo?

I didnt think about that, so if the steering is to responsive you would spin out. I will have to keep that in mind.
thanks,

Re: Stearing servo?

maybe you could try loosening up your servo saver bellcrank so it takes a little more of the impact.

Re: Stearing servo?

What brand of radio do you have now, high torque servos are expensive. I have always used Futaba Radio Gear and never had a problem yet. I think that airtronics uses a different wiring pattern than Futaba and others, but am not sure. Regular servos are only about fifteen bucks and make sure to go name brand. If you are not running a servo saver, you should be.
Hope this helps.

Re: Stearing servo?

<font color=blue>Get a servo with metal gears, I used to roast steering servos on my GT just by pulling the starter cord! [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/laugh.gif[/img] Hitec makes some nice servos, and a company called Cirrus (look in the catologs in the back of Radio Controlled Car Action) makes a high-torque metal-gear servo with a clear case [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/cool.gif[/img] for about $25.</font color=blue>

Re: Stearing servo?

i also have a rc10gt and my old steering servo stripped out!i have the rtr version w/hitec radio, its not the best but i have no complaints. but when my servo died i replaced it with a high torque servo , and man this guy doesnt even work hard. less labor it does the longer hours it should be able to work, right. it is tower hobbies # hrcm1043 and it was only like $25 to $30. (the book says $40 but i know i didnt pay that much!) i like it a lot and i run my truck HARD!! even the walls at the track only take axles! and there only a couple buck each.
