    I just replaced my stockers out for a futaba 9351 for throttle and brake, and a hitec 1/4 scale 5745 for steering. Nice little upgrade from stockers, fast and accurate. Plus the metal blue horn that comes with the hitec is the same thread size as the steering link bolt. Very simple little swap.

    Let us know how the 5745 works out, Hitec told me it is very similar to the Multiplex, different gears and electronics but essential the same servo if that makes any sense I think is hasn't the same software that protects it from end point burn out)
    They are quoted as saying the 5745 is a less money servo because Multiplex commands a higher price..

    The Rhino Digi 4 has an override that eliminates burn out. I broke the stock servo and couldn't wait for the metal gears to come into stock or I would have saved some money and bought the gear set.

    The rhino is made by multiplex, Tower carries them in stock. I put one in my Baja and it made a big difference. Much faster steering and turns when sitting still easily.

    In Denmark, the Rhino is considered THE Servo for FG's with MT Wheels.

    p.s. Speed is for 40 degrees (.10/40 degrees equals 0.15/60 degrees)

    As for the Burn out Override, I have recently heard about severel in Denmark that burned out their Rhino's, due to bad EPA programming.
    Conclussion in Denmark: Don't trust the override, program your EPA correctly.
