    Dunno about the Hitec servo.
    But I absolutely love the Savöx SW-0231MG that I have in my SCX10.

    I recently purchased the Traxxas 2075 Digital Waterproof servo for my SCX10. It should arrive today. It was on sale, pretty cheap, picked it up cause of Medic using it on his First SCX10 build. I figure there are newer and better models, but wasn't ready to drop 70+ on a new servo. If anything, the Trax2075 will be a good backup in the future when I eventually upgrade.

    But yeah, if you wanna go cheap, you may want to look into that one. Amazon currently has it listed for 20$.
    I'd love a Savox, but trying to stay budget friendly until me and my wife settle on a house.

    Keep on rollin'!

    As long as you are looking at hitec servo, just get it. No need asking it any more.
