Servo Help!

Just bought a circuit a few weeks ago. I think my servo went. When the car is parked the tires stay turned to the left now. When I turn the remote it can turn both ways but it sets back to the left. You think its my Servo? or might I have jumped a tooth? Either way I'm looking for a new servo. Any recommendations? Thanks

You may have stripped the servo arm? Remove the servo arm and inspect it. If it's not stripped, recenter your servo and reinstall the servo arm.

Did not look stripped. I recentered it and it happened again after a crash. I think I need a new servo. Recommendations for metal gear servo on an Ecx Circuit?

Some servos will be too tall to fit without modifying.

This servo fits https://www.ebay.com/itm/Kyosho-Inf...345628&hash=item23cacd6623:g:0zoAAOSwjzldzy3u
This one as well https://www.ebay.com/itm/JX-PDI-622...553155&hash=item2f29329a14:g:3RIAAOSwbKdcLIYA
Both servos I use or have used.

This one is listed in the recommended ECX Amp upgrades thread http://www.valuehobby.com/power-hd-1501mg.html

I would recommend getting an aluminum 25t servo horn also with the above servos (or any servo for that matter) stock Spektrum servos have 23t splines.

That Power HD servo linked above looks pretty decent for an analog servo. What Value Hobby did, on their site, just blows my mind...they put the replacement gear set right below the servo description. That's a big deal for me as I will only buy servos that have a replacement gear set.
