Some more good feedback on the TG servos. It seems that everone who uses them likes them a lot. Now I'm even more sure that I want one. Thanks ss_m

Well guys:

1 st off I've run the same Hitec 5945's in my K buggy under racing conditions for 3 seasons now. They work awesome. Not 1 glitch or problem. Just be sure to set your end points properly. I have seen way to many racers say they have...but.... they have not set them properly and you know what happens then.

I'm running the 5997 TI's in my CRT this year and so far they are just fabulous. Strong and fast. I used to run only airtronics but I don't any more for the last few years because of service problems and service dep't people who won't own up to mistakes which cost me money I should not have paid. They had a opportunity to make it right and they chose not to. Airtronic's servos performance #'s don't match my Hitec's in any way at all and I'm very happy since I switched.

The Hitecs out do them in every catagory and if I have a problem the warranty service is the best in the industry from Hitec.

I have nothing to gain from this post, this is just my observations from a guy thats been racing for 17 years sponsored by Master Card. For you Airtronics lovers I'll put my flame suit on now.

Go Hitec Go!
