    What is the best servo to run in a Stadium Truck

    I have been looking at several different models but I cannot really decide on which servo to use to upgrade my blitz.

    I have been rockin the team associated high end servo with something like 200 ounces of torque. It was the single greatest upgrade I have done to date on my slash. it handles the track so much better now.

    welcome mrshortcourse!

    Been agonizing the servo choice for my blitz too! It comes down to 3 factors for me: price/torque/speed

    Basically get the fastest/most torquie servo you can for your budget. The 2WD Blitz prolly won't need 201.4 oz/in of torque that a 4x4 would but I wouldn't go much less than 120oz/in - the more the merrier here! I think speed is more important if I had to compromise. No sense in having tons of power that isn't delivered quick enough. Also, I'm only considering the ones with metal gears for durability reasons.

    i run a 2056 waterproof servo in my rustler VXL, i think waterproof servos are a must because they will get moist running in dirt or mud as well as a servo saver is a good combo in any truck!!

    From experience I would recommend the Savox 1258 to anyone. 12kg of torque & 0.08 sec/speed

    but they come at a cost of about 50 which is around about $75 I think

    well worth it though in my opinion!

    I have a couple from savox and can't say a bad thing about them
