Default Shift servo question...

Well, as many of you out there... My shift servo let the ghost out after about 10min. Yes... I did adjust it before hand. Looking to replace it with a better servo. Anyone know what the stock servo pushes out? Also what is the tooth count for the servo horn?

I did the HiTech 225mg. It's a direct fit and has given me no troubles. It's great having gears!!

My stock shift servo just keeps on shifting! I got one of the few good ones I guess.

I have a spare 225MG from my Losi Mini waiting when it happens...

You've got a good point there for sure. I should just swap it out...

Use the stock one as paperweight.

My finally crapped itself. No reason. Just stopped and made everything go haywire. Unplugged it and left it in HIGH gear and now don't have to worry about it. I have a spare hitec that I am planning to put in. I ordered the servo horn kit from Horizon Hobby's so I can use it. I think it comes to under $10 shipped and appears to be on backorder.

I found one on eBay. Hopefully they actually have it in hand and I won't have to cancel it if its just a backorder through eBay.
