We were running the senton out in the cold today, when after 5 minutes, it stopped turning. Throttle works fine, just no steering. Thought she was just too cold for the servo, so we brought it inside the heated shop. After an hour, it still doesn't turn. Tried re-binding, factory reset the esc, still not working. Hard to believe the servo is shot after 4 runs on the machine! ? Any thoughts gang?

I just broke my servo after about 5 runs. I opened her up and sure enough a small gear was stripped

Wow! That’s the exact same thing that happened to me. After about 15 minutes right out of the box I am having the same problem. I took the servo apart and I’m not noticing any stripped gears. I tried turning the Servo not attached to the front wheels and nothing. I’m assiming this thing is gone. Was thinking about tapping into the warranty but seems like most are having similar problems. So I’m definitely upgrading to something else. Oh and this just happened yesterday. 01-10-2018

Got my Senton on Friday and run it today and after less than 15 minutes same thing, stirring went out and will only turn right. Has anyone had any luck fixing the issue or just placing a warranty claim with Arrma. If this is the quality of the Arrma Servo, warranty or not, I'll definitely want to upgrade. Any thoughts or suggestions for me on a new servo? Mostly I will be bashing out here in the country on dirt, gravel and asphalt on 2s lipos.

That sucks! I had the same thing happen to mine a few runs in.
I would file a warranty claim and see what happens. If you win the claim, I would save that servo for a smaller rig and buy something new for the Senton.

I bashed/crashed a Turnigy tgy-5521mdhv on my Senton for about a year and stripped the gears on that one. I recently bought a Savox 1270TG for it because I have had great luck with the 1270tg in my Kraton and MT410. I have ran them hard in both those truck for a long time.

They do sell the replacement gears for the Arrma servo, if you would rather try them again.

You'll want to look into a Savox or Hitec servo. Steel or titanium gears. I've never had a RTR car with a quality servo.

You can file a warranty claim, but then you have to wait. And break it again after a few runs. Spend the money on a good servo. It's worth it.

Had the same thing happen on my Kraton. Got a savox Servo with titanium gears. Much better. Also upgraded to a Hot racing Aluminium Servo mount. Made a huge difference
