ProTek RC 160TBL Black Label Low Profile High Torque Brushless Servo.

Brushless servo technology has improved by leaps and bounds. Finally, brushless servos can deliver holding power, speed and precision that can compete with a coreless servo. Combine that with the superior efficiency and lifespan of a brushless motor and you have a servo that hits all the marks, with the performance and quality required for a pro level build. 

A black anodized aluminum case with aluminum and gold accents give this servo a stealthy look that sets it apart from the rest. The aluminum upper case provides bomb proof durability and the heat sink center case offers efficient heat dissipation and helps to reduce weight. An aluminum, single arm clamping servo horn is included, as well as a full set of servo mounting washers for a rock solid and durable installation.  

NOTE: If you experience glitching or poor performance while using a Futaba transmitter, you must turn off BLS mode. BLS mode is only compatible with Futaba BLS type servos. 

Features:

  • Used by Ryan Maifield to win the 2019 Roar 4wd Off-Road National Championships
  • Ideal for any 1/10 to 1/8 surface application that can benefit from a low profile configuration
  • Full aluminum black anodized case

ProTek RC 160TBL "Black Label" Low Profile High Torque Brushless Servo
It is a bad departure to write this review in comparison to all the other good reviews that you see about this servo. I however have had 2 bad experiences with this servo. First, I have had ProTek servos in the past that have been excellent, were very strong torque power, and these servos would have lasted a long time. For some reason I got a bad batch with these two. When I got the first 160 TBL I installed it and it gave normal operation of a ProTek servo. But I learned that I could hear servo noise that was out of spec because these servos make no noise whatsoever and neither do any other servos I have used. There was a light twitching sound in the servo that was noticeable that sounded like some type of electronic interference. I tested it on another receiver and the same noise was still evident. I didn't know whether this servo would malfunction fully so I returned it to A-Main. I received my second servo and didn't even install it and immediately plugged it in expecting to hear a quiet servo. To my shock I heard the exact same twitching sound however this time it was even louder. I had to return this one as well. If you go to page 2 of these reviews Clifford Flores said the same thing. I don't know if it is possible that there are whole batches of electronics that are defective in a lot, but this may have been the case here. Lately, I have noticed that the quality from China, Taiwan, Korea, or other Asian countries just isn't what it used to be. If you read my review of the Tekin Gen4 Spec-R 13.5T, the same thing happened with this motor. In comparison, my Motive MC4 was hand checked, assembled, and packaged by a professional at the Wisconsin office. For this motor there was an 18 part Analysis and Quality Control Spec Sheet, including a visual inspection, machine test and motor temp, and the timing was optimized and pre-set. Upon installation, this Motiv MC4 17.5T motor could power my Team Associated B74.1 4WD with a near power level as the Tekin Gen4 Spec-R 13.5T. In this comparison, poor quality control standards should be a justification that electronics should be produced here in the USA like they used to be. Corporations just will not have it this way though because of their profit margin of executive greed. Much of our electronics must be produced at FOXCONN and abroad in order to justify that unheard of profit margin and eliminate good paying American jobs. What do you think?

This is my standard steering servo for my 1/10th scale off-road buggies and stadium truck. I really like the speed an torque this servo delivers when I'm racing (though i'm a slow guy :-)).

Nice low profile, very short plug wire though, so needs to be close to Rx or you may need an extension.

This is my second Protek 160TBL servo. I was so impressed by my first purchase I had to get another for one of my other vehicles, and will be getting 3 more over time to replace the others in my vehicles.

ProTek RC 160TBL "Black Label" Low Profile High Torque Brushless Servo
I was about to buy another brand servo but after I put my order together (big order $1K plus) in the cart and saw what the total was and I needed to save a few bucks, seeing this 160TBL in the recommended area for the kit I was buying I said why not, save 30 bucks which can go towards tires, upon getting the order in I was blown away with how detailed and cleanly built the servo looked, but looks don't matter if it don't work the way it should right? well still a little unsure on my purchase even though it looked good, I built my kit and got everything all setup, upon first drive of my new 22X-4 and seeing how responsive and fast this servo was, I started to like the servo, then later that day after trying to drive again after a 22 year break from 10th scale, I cart wheeled the buggy massively, it popped ball cups off and scraped my nice carbon fiber shock tower like no other, the servo however, it laughed it off like it was nothing, popped all the ball cups back on and away I went again to relive my younger years, to anyone in doubt about protek servos, trust me, I am sold on this brand now, and just tonight learned its a A Main brand product, which I respect a good quality servo being produced as a house brand, wish they made some good heavy duty servos for my 5th scales, I would buy them in a heart beat.

The Protek 160tbl has been holding up extremely well as a dig servo! It's really robust and instantaneous after a few tuning with the receiver but overall I love the slim design! It has really nice premium look which suits well for my Capra build. I highly recommend this servo!

Installed this servo in my 22 5.0 and it was amazing!!! The car does what I think I'm telling it to do now. Alot less bobbles and wrecks on the race track. Of course I'm coming from an older but decent Futaba servo. I would reccommend these to anyone they are awesome!!

ProTek RC 160TBL "Black Label" Low Profile High Torque Brushless Servo
This was the perfect servo for the show / trail truck I was building. The best thing about this servo is it fit perfect with that low profile case it is in. Its quite and packs plenty of power. At 6.4 v I am running at the lowest setting. No need for 7.4 in a show truck. It is moving a set of Patagonia's on SSD bead locks. Over all it is great for the price. Would buy again

ProTek RC 160TBL "Black Label" Low Profile High Torque Brushless Servo
Quick servo with plenty of torque and in a low profile aluminum cased package.

It's got the goods, and the connector lead is shorter than a lot of servos "used to be", so for most competition vehicles, it's one less thing to fiddle with to get a good wire management layout.
