I've purchased many of these in the past and all I can really say is none of them have ever put a foot wrong. They've never missed a beat. I have broken one before, but that was my mistake. I don't really think any servo can take a head on collision at about 60 mph. As mentioned in the previous reviews, this servo doesn't have much power (44.4 oz) so this is only really suitable for on road cars. However, these aren't too good for racing as they have pretty slow response time compared to high end servos. But for a backyard basher, these are perfect. I also have the S3004 (ball bearing version) in my ancient Traxxas Rustler and it does fine, but is a bit sluggish at turning those grippy 2.2" tires. Especially on dry asphalt in the middle of the summer at a dead stop. Overall, this is the best standard servo as it has a great cost to performance ratio and of course, it's a Futaba. Which means it's going to last longer than the RC it's installed in. Very great product. Already recommended it many times.
