HS-55 are the most popular of servo,
there must be a reason for them to stop working soon out of the box.
Were they the right servo for the job?
101 - Servo FAQ & picking the right servo for the job
and was correct voltage being used?
Servo - Burnout. Cause & Prevention

The HS-5055MG is virtually the same servo, only being the digital version.
What is the application? perhaps a larger servo is required?

HS-55 not intended for those models, suspect you have stripped the nylon gears
- Replacement HS-55 Servo Gear Set.

The HS-55MG should fit but be aware that Losi Parts House recommends:
HRC35055S HS-5055MG Digital Metal Gear Sub Micro Servo with Tech Note
"Will not work with the stock Losi Mini-T ESC/Rec Combo Unit LOSB1087"
NB: Check that the servo saver (must be used) does fit the servo output shaft spline
correctly or use an alternate.
