the best servos in my opinion on the market are the Sanwa VX or VZ for high toque applications, and the VRX for high speed, and still alot of torque.

they have i think 14kg of toque, and are very accurate.

If not JR anyone have any other brands they like?

I race every weekend at the club level and attend the state and Nat's although I dont compete in the A's at those.
If I had a servo last 2 years in an 1/8 scale I wouldn't look far for my next one.

It's using up batt and can't be great for the servo.
A very precise set up of the horn and smooth linkage will minimize it.
As my steering wears and loosens it will whine a little when on the starter box
{full extention on linkage=more load from linkage to servo than normal ride height}
I just blip the throtle or wiggle the wheel to center the
tires and linkage and it quiet.
thanks for the advice mate,other than that minor noise how do you rate them,mine have been troble free for 6 months of weekly racing

the numbers speak for themselves. the air758 is .10 with 200 ounces. noboby else can match both those numbers.

I switched my servos and put the JR9000T on brake-throttle and the Ace 1015 on the steering. The Ace has 200oz. at .108. It is much better to drive now. Steering feels a WHOLE LOT better to me. The JR seemed just a little bit too slow for my taste. I drive the Losi 8 and the faster Ace fits me better. So, I'm going to stick with the faster servos for steering from now on. What are the ratings on the 9000S? I almost chose that before I decided to give the 1015 a try. But I pretty happy for now.

For whatever reason an Airtronics 200oz/.10s servo is not as fast as a .12s Futaba/Jr/Ko/Hitec. Personally I have seen the Futaba s9350 last over two years. The Hitec 5955 also seems good but at over 300 oz is probably overkill for a buggy.

JR 9000s has at transmit time of .06 at 6 volts with 128oz. of torque.
It is super quick and it will help you be a better driver too. also anything with less than .10 for steering of a buggy makes it hard to drive IMO. Unless it is a truggy and then you have to sacrifice speed for torque. I too drive a losi 8 and it is perfect.
