Hi all I brought a hitec 840 for the throttle and brake for my losi 5t purchased in January this year
But failed at the track on Sunday I’ve got to send it back for warranty I wanted to have a refund they tell me it’s not that easy are these servos any good

Yeah with hitec you have to send everything back. I also sent my 845 back and it took 3 weeks to get it back and they were 30min away from.

That's why I like horizon warranty. They will just send you a brand new one.

Just run the stock one for now as it is plenty for throttle and brake.

The stock brake/throttle servo works perfectly fine, nothing wrong with it. I actually use it with all my builds because its dirt cheap from RC chop shops
It is in fact a rebranded Savox 0235, the steering is Savox 0236 ;)

Throw that hitec in the trash and get a hilantronics. Last servo you will ever buy. Or like gavsta said get savox. Have them in every rc car I ever owned save the vekta steering. The hitec that is in my 5ive t is and was dog shite.
