    alot use the 805BB, decent servo but there were a few of us the decapited the drive gear in the bajas.
    fwiw. you can go to tower and buy the TS-80 form Tower or the Hobbico CS-80, and the only differance to the hitec is the sticker on it and they are cheaper and have the exact same part number for repalcement gears in all 3 servos.

    MPX the first Digital Servos for large scale cars or any cars for that matter and still the best. So good Hitec bought the company

    i ve heard alot of people have good results with the 705. if im not mistaken, i think its a tad less powerfull and slower but not much.

    yes i use a y harness it comes with it. it does a fine job on the truck. i have had it for over a year now. the only reason i have an 805 is that tower was sold out of the hs-80 when i bought my marder. with the 705 u loose almost 150oz/in of torque. and i don't think that 1 will turn the wheels standing still on a mt5.

    If you want POWER without huge expense, then try for Dual 805 servos at the stearing

    Og look at the GWS S777CG 6BB with 6 ball bearings, carbonite gears and 42kg/cm
    Speed is advertised as 0.12/60 at 6V, but I think that is overrated...

    todd the hitec 5745 is rated for 208 in. oz. @4.8V and the 705 mg is rated at 201 in. oz. @4.8V and the 5745 turned the wheels fine at a stand still!:)
