Due to running on a high bite indoor clay track, I wanted a servo that was both responsive and with good torque output. I settled on this MKS HBL599 as the stats looked good but was a bit worried as I had no experience with MKS as a brand before. The build and machine work just on the case is impressive, not cheap pot-metal cases here with machined holes and calling it a CNC part, this is a machined case with serious cooling fins. Running it off a Tekin RX8 GenII at 7 volts this thing is an absolute beast and centers perfectly with out constantly wander and searching for center, best digital brushless servo I have owned yet, others being Futaba, Airtronics and Savox. Not had my buggy in any major crashes so no major reports on durability yet but the servos is the best built one I have seen under $200.00, bar none.
The spline count for this is the same as Savox and Futaba, 25T.
I found this on the Sanwa site

About the digital servos specification
Model: All "SANWA" brand digital servos.
SANWA's digital servos were designed to improve a vehicle resoponse to the limit. As a result, the servos makes frizzling noise on neutral status and also the servo horn vibrates slightly. These symptoms are caused by the strict specification, however it does not affect product's performance. We would recommend you to feel the deffirence of the vehicle response.
So it looks like a Sanwa issue,
OK just an update on the servo .
I have raced a few times now @ 2 hours use ,servo gear set is worn ,ie,quite a bit of play .
A Main dont stock servo gear sets for these servos ,but they do have a kit for the HBL 380 which may fit ,but it has a 8mm spline .
Updated... the servo is still working well ,a bit more play in gears ,still cant get a repair kit for it though,. I have asked A Main about availability but got no reply yet .
Still . I need another steering servo for my new mugen eco truggy, and will stay with the mks 599 ,noisy or not they are still the most powerfull, fast,servo ive ever encountered.
A Main have not stocked the gear set for these servos yet ,they have plenty of other mks sets ,but no mks x6 599 .it would be great to know if they intend to have them or not !
