I've googled and you have to look for servo with that dimensions more or less like that: http://www.servocity.com/html/hs-82mg_servo.html

But please check the 1/16 revo manual. It should state the min/max dimensions of the servo.

If my googling is correct, look for metal gear servos of 20g weight with that dimensions.

The stock servo's are junk IMO. My and my daughters both crapped out.
for a cheaper alternative for my daughter, let you know how it goes.

I replaced mine with a Hitec HS82mg, DO NOT get the HS85MG as it strips out too!

This is the one I used to replace mine:


it's a bit smaller, but it tightens down all the same and has EXCELLENT torque. I bash my MERV pretty hard (20+ feet at the skate park) and I haven't managed to do any damage to this servo.

Lasted for a while but stripped gears, good thing I bought 2.
If you want more reliable basher go with the Turnigy 380MAX.
Much better quality IMO.
