Lol it's a good servo, you will enjoy it for sure. If you run HV thru it consider a glitch buster so your receiver doesn't freak out. Savox stuff is known for this

Savox is a good brand, and that is from a good line of servos.

The question is about specs. What are they? Me, I could not tell a difference from stock until I hit 200/.15. Maybe I'm not that adept at the controls...who knows?

I have three of them (one 1257 and two 1258's)...they've been fine. I love 'em. I use them all for throttle.

I'll have to look into the glitch buster I've never heard of that before. As far as the specs go it's 277/.15

FWIW, I don't run a glitchbuster. The Savox I have are standard  but I'm running Lipos on the (as my steering servos are HV). I've always heard that about Savox too so guess I've been lucky?

If your savox servo is not rated for HV and your running a lipo with it its only a matter of time before it dies. I highly recommend using a voltage regulator. You dont need a glitch buster if you use HV.

I don't recommend it...but it's what I've been doing for some time now (2-3 gallons)...I've heard it's not an issue from some folks (who knows?)

Is the issue you are referring to Savox specific, or just in general (I have similar setups in other vehicles other servos (ProTek/HiTec) They have lasted longer than a lot of standards with 6v. Not sure why it be...but it be. ;-) But again, I don't want to be responsible for someone else trying it. Perhapos I've been lucky
