    Cool Steering Servo #2075

    As others have posted, the plastic gears in the servo are weak and cheap.
    That being said: after two months of ownership of my Slash 2WD, I was forced to make a decision yesterday after I lost all steering control.
    I brought my rig inside and popped open the servo compartment and found several teeth missing from two gears.
    I could have easily sent the servo back under warranty or purchase a set of metal gears for the 2075X which I did.
    In my mind, it would have only been a matter of time before the same thing happened again.
    To ship the servo back to Traxxas would have cost me $7.95 as opposed to purchasing the metal gear set out the door with tax & shipping for $27.06; a $19.11 investment I was willing to make.
    This gear set should really augment the T6 aluminum bellcrank I just installed which by the way; has given me super crisp steering response.

    I did the same thing after i put big tires on my slash. I bought the metal gears and havent had any issue yet. This was probably 3 or 4 months ago.

    Savox 0251 gears are also a drop in replacement for the 2075 gears. I've had a set in for 5 years a still going strong.

    Hm. Is that gear set better than the 2075x? Is it the same metal and everything?

    I have had good luck with my standard 2075s for years. Recently, my wife took out the gears in the 2075 that I had mounted in my Stampede.
    I opted to replace the plastic gears simply because they were available.
    I am currently running a Savox 1258 in my 2wd Slash. I think once I replace the gears in the broken 2075 I will probably use it in whatever my next build is, or use it for rear steer in my Tamiya 6x6

    I must be a lucky one - or the builder/supplier of Traxxas's servos had a run of quality issues as of late. I ran a single 2070 and later 2075 in my nitro Revo for years with no issues and when they died from use I saved the gears just in case. I remember buying a used 2075 locally from a guy on Craiglist but that was years ago. Recently put a Promodeler in for more power and the 2075 is sitting in a box as a back-up for one of my Slashes.

    Before Traxxas came out with their metal-geared servos or the metal gear upgrade, the Savox gears were found to be a direct fit and common replacement. You could go with them or Traxxas's offering.

    Is it just me or is this hobby as highly addictive as crack?
    The more I upgrade; the more I want something else and can't stop the vicious cycle of spending money to have even more fun.
    I love it!!;

    Well, I fund my RC addiction by junk picking bikes and mowers and selling them in the classified ads.
    Thatís a step above stripping wire out of empty apartments for scrap isnít it ?

    Yeah it is lol. Do you rebuild them so they run before you sell them?

    Installed the metal gear set in my 2075 servo this evening and it made a huge difference.
    The steering is more precise and is augmented by a Traxxas aluminum bellcrank.
    I'm quite pleased with this simple upgrade.

    Very simple. Anybody could do it i think. It wont go together if its not together right. It works great too. Well worth 20$.

    Did you notice if your servo was a bit louder?

    It really didn't have a significant increase in gear noise which I found unusual since they're metal.
    I'm not complaining at all and found that installing the set and clocking them quite easy.
    I simply followed the Traxxas support video and took pics prior to disassembly.
