Bought one of these after owning 10 other protek servos of various models for buggy ST, SC, crawling. I put this 370TBL in my fiances ax10. THE Best and strongest servo I have ever owned....highly recommend this servo.....home run guys
WOW! hard to believe there were bad reviews on this servo. This thing is a beast. I ran over 2200 gates at Axialfest with this in my scx10ii and it could literally push my rig around. I then ran about 400 + gates with my 11.4 pound 2.2 custom Wroncho build. Again, it had enough power to toss the rig around when bound against a rock. I will warn you though if you don't have metal everything that is attached to this servo the servo will destroy it. Plastic steering link, servo horns, knuckles or chubs will be ruined behind this much power. I heard there were some issues with the first release but they definitely have the bugs worked out. I own two and plan on running them in my rigs for now on.
Awesome. No external BEC or capacitor needed and this thing is powerful. Running mine with 6.0 volts. Not sure you can buy a stronger servo for the money that is waterproof with no need for additional parts for power. Looks great and couldn't be happier. Was a little hesitant after reading the negative review but moved forward with the purchase and glad I did.
Ok after busting up 3 servos on my Wraith I pucheased this one and I have to say well worth the money! I have Castle Creations Mamba X with 2850KV motor running 4S Lipo it tops out about 30MPH and I have hit many objects busting rod ends and steering links and this servo is still running on the original set of gears without a servo saver! When I run on trails I use a 3S Lipo and this servo has monster torque! Don’t be a fool like me and waste $$ on cheaper servos buy this one! Also I did cross a creek with my Wraith and the servo was under water and the servo survived.
10/25/2108 The hot racing servo horn just bent but the servo is still going strong!!! It’s a beast!
I ran this servo during 12 hour event at The Pro-Line Fix Enduro and it stayed strong, cool and never a hiccup all day long in the brutal conditions of the High Desert near Apple Valley, CA. I'm very happy and proud to say the 370TBL is now Recon G6 Certified!!! I have finally found the steering servo for me and the harsh conditions that I put my rig through on a regular basis. Thank You. ;)
On a scale from 1-10 I would give this a 12+.
I bought this when it first came out and that night I used it to push a garden brick across the table. It pushed with such force it actually pushed it away from the servo. I have it in my Beast II and it is a monster. It has been fully submerged in mud and still works like a champ. Will recommend to all my crawling buddies.
I set this servo up on a RTR SCX 10ii Honcho, BEC set at 6 volts, vanquish 25T servo horn. Works flawlessly. I also shimmed the servo with 4 1mm ball cup spacers made by ProTek. Lifting the servo by 1mm allowed for no binding. I have about 3 hours on this setup and am very happy.
Works well in my TRX4.
One thing to note: the power lead is WAY too short for the TRX4. You'll either need to flip the receiver box around or buy an extension cable to make it work (I did both).
Thought it was a brute on 6v. Bumped it to 8v. Beast mode!!!
I have both the 170t and 170s already, so I knew I had to get the crawler version for my crawler. These are the o ly servos I'm using going forward. Fast, powerfull and quiet. Cant beat them!!
Powerful. Quiet. Fast. Looks great. Easily pushes 2.2s on my crawler.
This is absolutely the best servo for a crawler/trail truck. I put this in my scx10ii and had a couple fitment issues with the protek servo horn hitting the frame rail and the panhard bar mount. But I have absolutely nothing bad to say about the servo its self. Been running it for 2 months now, and it has taken lots of abuse and has more run time under water than out of it(for some reason I like driving up streams and creeks). Yes it's expensive but to me it's been worth every dollar
I'm running this servo in my TRX4-Bronco. so far it has been flawless. the steering is very precise for technical crawling powerful enough to get you out of trouble
Great servo, wire lead seems a little short which makes it hard to use with a trx4 and the waterproof housing for the receiver. Totally worth it though.
Strong, quiet, reliable. Half the time it moves to truck, the other half it moves the terrain. Great servo
Works great. I’m using four of these servos in all my crawlers. Using the HW 1080,and Mamba X esc’s with it.
Great servo! The price was kind of high for what I was looking for at first. The other models being on backorder and also looking at the spec sheets on a few made my decision easier. Installed immediately when I received it and tested it out. The power it has on my heavy rig is amazing on any surface. Glad I made the choice and strongly recommend it to others.
Awesome servo. Very powerful and responsive. Love the start up chime!
best waterproof servo i have owned for my crawlers. have 2 and will be buying more
this thing is a beast i have been running it for 7 or 8 months now and it works flawlessly. its 100 percent water proof i have drivin my trx4 into the ocean and rivers and creaks and it goes and it goes and goes. this servo can steer with all the weight of the truck on the front axle it just pushes the truck over. my trx4 weighs 12 pouns too. and to top it off it looks damn nice with the black and machined alum heat sinks on side. dont think about it just buy it !
