Default What's the best replacement servo for the original steering servo?

After only nearly three tanks of fuel through my losi 5t the steering servo has packed it in. I'm after ideas for a good strong reliable servo to replace it with. Any suggestions would be much appreciated.

Im running a hitec 5765 but going dual when i get time, only because i think it's a better set up for racing.

Look into the dual steering servo kit. It seams that there is no servo that will be bulletproof in the Losi. You may want to bite the bullet and spend the cash up front. If you dont your most likely going to pay over time.

I trashed 2 steering servos and got really sick of the fade with the single servo, even running Hitec 5765. Since I got the dual setup (with 2 Hitec 5765's) my steering concerns are a thing of the past--thanks to dark soul! Still no issues to report.

Same here, does what I want a little too good.

My mate pulled the servo apart and found wires that hadn't been soldered properly and had seperated. A few mins and he fixed everything. Took it out this arvo and all good. I've ordered a 5805 and next month I will look at getting a dual setup. Thanks for the advice fellas.

How's the fixed servo working out??
Once that servo finally dies get yourself a dual servo kit.
I have a darksoul kit and will probably pick up a GFR complete servo tray for my other 5ive.

How's that setup been treating you?
Any issues with it at all or anything you'd like to see added, moved, or removed?

The GFR servo tray has been great. It's nice having a place for the receiver and a lipo battery and switch. No complaints.

That's what I figured.
You and Al are the only guys I know of running the GFR setup is there anyone else??
Any issue with the fasteners coming loose or needing to be snugged up some after being ran??
