ProTek RC 170TBL Black Label 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 white 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. The lead wire is detachable, allowing you to easily custom tailor the servo lead to your application, and the package includes both 135mm and 285mm length servo leads. Plus, a full selection of servo arms and mounting hardware are included making installation easy.

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.

ProTek RC 170TBL "Black Label" High Torque Brushless Servo
Strongest servo ever! At 7.4 volts this thing flings my giant 3.8" Proline trenches around like they aren't even there even when the truck is sitting still. I cant believe the performance. Only servo I'm ever using for 1/8 scale or crawlers... liked it so much I ordered the 170sbl for my SCT and the 370tbl for my crawler. So much quieter than the noisy savox they replaced..

I live in rock city Pennsylvania. Kidding but serious. My 170t is a year old and run daily. Still very solid though I'm looking at buying a backup set of gears wich r not needed yet.

ProTek RC 170TBL "Black Label" High Torque Brushless Servo
I only trust this in my 1/8 buggies for my steering servos. Never had a problem. Run without worrying about lack of holding strength when cornering hard or landing weird, this servo can take the beating.

ProTek RC 170TBL "Black Label" High Torque Brushless Servo
These servos are seriously a great choice for 1/8 buggy / truggy nitro or electric , They are quiet as can be and hold up in extreme conditions 120° + Temps , And with A main having your back no matter what you can't go wrong , With other name brand servos if you have any issues with them you have to wait for a replacement , Not with a main tho . Point is if you run a nitro buggy or truggy it's a great/probably the best servo to go with Imo . I give it a 5 star rating outa 5 stars .
