servo gear problem

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
I have 2 duratrax SX-100 servo's and have had a problem with the black plastic servo gear stripping. Is there a way to get just that gear because it costs 8.00 for the whole set. I only need to replace the black plastic gear. :

: does a metal geared servo really make a difference. :

What else can I do.

please reply

I've never seen servo gears sold seperately, always in sets. Metak gears are definately the way to go. A good quality servo saver is also a must.
Have fun Brian

Servo gears are only sold in sets so you won't be able to buy just the one gear you need.

The Duratrax SX-100 servo comes as standard with their entry level electric BX buggy, ST truck and their 1/18 micro vehicles. Duratrax uses Futaba radio systems and I would assume that these servos are really re-badged Futaba S3003 servos. These servos provide average performance at best with 44 oz. in. of torque which is a bit low. If you are stirpping gears all the time then you might want to consider upgrading to a higher quality servo.

I'm using the Hitec HS-925MG servo in my Associated T4 and it's proven bullet proof.
