I'm not too familiar with the Futaba servo's but I use a Hitec 925 in the throttle and a Hitec 5945 in the steering. Go to both websites and compare the spec's.

Off the top of my head I think a Futaba S9451 servo is pretty good.I think thats the # for the one I use.It's response time is real fast and it has ok torque too,about 120-140 ounces/in.

I'm using the s9451 for throttle and s9351 for steering. Approx. numbers are .10@125 for 9451 and .13@190 for 9351.
