See this post in the 1/12th thread. The attached image highlights the two newest best servo choices.

Default Servos

Best choices are the Futaba S9650 should be your number 1 choice. Also a very close second is the Savox 1250 .I run the futaba in my 1/12th and the savox in my WGT10

The Futaba 9650 has been used for years but it and the Savox 1250 are very slow servos. There are better choices available today. The Spektrum H5020G and the Savox 1257 are both lighter, faster and less expensive than the 9650.

Are the Savox servos weight listed in grams?

Adrian thanks for the detailed answer I think in am going to give the 5020 a shot , I agree w you that torque should not be an issue due to servo savers deflecting before overcoming the servo

16AWG and your rollout will be around 97-106ish mm. I run at 104mm with a Reedy Sonic and our track is 104x48... 76 spur/57-62 pinion range.. tires are at 42/41

You only need to run 16g wire if you have a short span between the speedo and motor. 13g wire in a short span would impede pod movement.

On the 12R5.2 the speedo is far from the motor and flexible 13g wire will work fine.

See the pic.

BTW, its not my pic. I snagged it as I will be running the same speedo in my R5.2

I found that the 16g wire I was previously using was getting warm, so I switched back to the 14.

I think a lot of guys in stock have switched to TQ 20g. Wayne won Cleveland this year with 20g. Wire should never get hot with 17.5 For mod 13.5 is still the standard.

Will this be a suitable substitute ?

Or does it have to be this?
