Both of those servos are SLOW. They're great for monster trucks and crawlers but not for onroad. You need a servo that is no slower than .12s transit time. .10s is better but .08s or less is best.

Really? I didn't think they would be bad , well that's what I got so I gotta use them for now. The jr has 400oz of tq , I never checked the speed ...

Not bad at all, just as stated, they would be more useable in monster-truck/crawler applications due to the emphasis on high tq rather than high speed. When racing, the cars are much easier to drive with fast servos.

However - IT WILL WORK, and I'm certain you will have a blast with it regardless of what is in there.

Well if it has that much torque use a longer servo arm that will make it faster.
Longer arm will give you faster throw and the servo has the the torque to do it.

Any of the ones for the Kyosho IGT will fit.

OFNA has a few others for the original GTP car. The one for the DM-1 spec car will fit but DO NOT get the bodies for the DM-1 Pro because those are 1/7 which has a longer wheel base that won't fit the GTP cars.

What the recommended tires for that track? I saw the video, that was awesome. I'm running a DM-1 Spec Tekno Conversion and I hoping to make next month's race.

Thanks for the info. I'm currently running with Sweeps - threaded. For my next order, I'll try those out and see the difference. It's all about trial in error in this hobby sometimes.
