    Metal geared steering servo for Stampede 2wd

    Does anyone know a metal-geared, high-torque, waterproof steering servo for the Stampede 2wd ? I want to change my 2075 servo with a metal-geared one !

    Metal geared steering servo for Stampede 2wd

    If you're looking to go cheap you can replace the plastic gears in the 2075 with some savox metal gears. Look up Savox SC-0251MG replacement gear set. It's a direct drop in.
    Too much power is just enough

    I don't. Id love to hear a recommendation for a faster, stronger, water proof servo.

    Here are some recommendations:

    first off, while the dimensions of the case aren't the exact same as the 2075 and the servo mounting tabs don't line up 100% perfect with the chassis holes the difference isn't even really a concern as the holes in the tab are oversize and will accommodate the VERY slight difference (slight as in not even a concern).
    i did choose to use a glitch buster to ward off any issues with the power needs of the savox and was happy to find that the spektrum capacitor i ordered fit right into the waterproof receiver box with the internal wiring neatly arranged. i still need more real world testing to make a well judged call on if the cap is enough or if an external bec is necessary.
    i went with an aluminum servo horn from axial that fits a 25t spline. to make this work the second hole is the attachment point and i used a dremel to grind off all material from the bottom of the 3rd hole to the end of the tip as it made it too long to clear the lcg chassis.
    finally, sometimes the specs on paper and real world application don't exactly line up but i'm happy to report that the savox is faster than the 2075 but not difficult to drive fast and the torque increase is substantial.

    For a single servo setup i would recommend the savox 1210. That was the servo i should have bought in the first place but by the time i realized, it had already shipped. So i just bought another one lol.

    When life hands you an underpowered (hardly) servo, buy another and run dual servos!

    Anyway , now I am happy with the hitec 5646 WP on my slash, the futaba S9157 on the ereb and Hitec HS7954SH on the revo 3.3, next I should try another the savox SA1230sg for another project

    From the info above it looks like it also runs fine without a glitch buster cap, however I personally fit a glitch buster cap by default on all my RC's as for only $5 I'd rather have one than not lol. Hence I've never run any of my servos without one.

    When I was looking for a new servo my wish list was:

    Torque over 200 oz-in (15kg-cm min)
    Faster than the 2075 (0.15 sec max)
    Waterproof
    Metal geared
    Must not need a BEC
    under $50

    I'm really happy with the WP-23 as it exceeds my expectations and turns the 2.8's with speed and authority compared to the standard 2075.

    Anyone know what spline count the Power HD WP-23 has?

    My son managed to break the output on his 2056 twice in one outing with his new trenchers. Gotta order up a couple.

    I am a huge savox fan, I even raced for them at one point. Never needed an external BEC on my SCT, buggy, or truck running Viper electronics. It seems though that everyone with the VXL-3 needs one though and I really don't want to add one.
