I'm late to this thread: but a TS-910 is also a good choice. It's inexpensive, has a metal body, takes high-voltage, and has the torque to turn those big tires. I run the faster-but-less-powerful TS-920 in my 1/10th stuff.

Re: Servo Recommendation

Thanks for all of the replies. I have installed the Savox 1230 and everything is now running well.

Initially when I installed it the throttle would not work. After calibrating the throttle I eventually got it to work, but as soon as I switched off the transmitter, the truck went into full throttle and shot across my workbench. Luckily, it hit the wall and flipped over. I quickly pulled the plug. No real damage. After opening the receiver unit, I could see that there was some grease on some of the posts of the chips. Having bought the truck second hand, I wasn't sure if the grease was dielectric or just axle grease. I used some contact cleaner to clean everything up and also noticed a little button on the board. I couldn't find the purpose of the button on the Internet, so why not just press it? It couldn't make things any worse. Anyway, it must have been a reset button as everything now is functioning properly.

I'm wondering if I should install a BEC? Any ideas?

Thanks for everybody's help.

Re: Servo Recommendation

I too have the same delema. I was looking at this servo or the Savox 1283. I just don't know if I need a BEC.
