    Cheap metal servo gears...



    By pure coincidence, I discovered a great way to put metal gears in the 2075 servo.
    I bought some super cheap servos a while back (4 for $20) but after some research I learned I probably got what I paid for and might fry my rig if I used them. So they sat around.
    But last weekend I got bored and disassembled a busted 2075 I had. Then I looked at the cheapo and figured "why not". Took it apart and the metal gears inside looked very similar. Switched the gears into the 2075, and it was a perfect fit. So for $20 I got 4 sets of metal gears. Not bad....
    Hopefully that's not a brand that is banned or something...

    sweet! does it have any effects on turning speed?(i ask because the gear ratio may be different for example: the traxxas one could be 400 turns of the tiny motor for a full turn while the new gears are 375 turns for a full turn)

    hmmm..... i did not think of that. i was so excited that they fit, i just figured they would be the same. i will compare it with an untouched 2075 that i have when i get home.

    ps... the bearing in the servo is aalso perfect fit for the 4tec2 steering bellcrank...

    Nice find!

    If you ever looking for another cheap set, Savox metal gears also drop right in. I did that on my 2075 before i upgraded the whole servo.
