    I'm running a Multiplex Rhino Digi 4. I used the supplied l shaped adaptor that came with the baja. It works much faster than the stock servo, and has all metal gears.

    I forgot to mention I too run the Multiplex Rhino Digi 4 and use the Hitec servo horn for it, no issues yet.

    running stock servo with the metal gear conversion. haven't really had any problems with it yet that would cause me to change to something else.

    I am running with the multiplex rhino digi 4. It works great, really strong and with good precision.

    I'm running stock servo w metal gears. It was ok till I modded my front hexes so that the front wheels won't drop off with a slightest impact. No e-clips, no lost bearings.

    But that generated other problem. Now when I hit something the front wheel won't pop off anymore. The impact goes straight to servo arm. (regardless of servo saver adjustment) So now I strip servo arm tooths and tooths from the main gear which the horn attaches. (only gear that is not metal..) I think I'm on my 5th set of servo horn/gears.

    Now I'm thinking about getting that multiplex rhino digi 4. Nobody seems to be having problems with it.
