Default Which Servo?

i need a digital servo to suit my 8 scale buggy.

I currently go some airtronics 13kg servo, however its analogue.

I need digital servos to suit the HRS mode in my Transmitter

What are the BEST digital servos going around? Would the new brushless servos be good in a 8 buggy?

Thanks

Ace (Thunder Tiger) has a line of badass digitals.

I'd go the JR Propo DS 8715. It is a super strong, super fast, super smooth and reliable servo. Great Value, one of the best 1/8th Scale servo's out there!

i would say the new Futaba brushless BL-351 x2 will be the best i run the stranded S9351 and they are top's but since the BL versions are out i would recommend them

I run the same Hitecs... They have been bullet proof for over a year now. Many gallons on them. Awesome product. I'm sure others are great as well, but I won't be trying anything else, anytime soon!

Thumbs up

It does seem like everyone except Air is making good servos. We have stacks of the Airtronics that have gone bad. They need to get it together.

+1 on the Futaba products and the new Brushless units are even better.

The Traxxas guys have told me great things about the Ace servos as well.

They come with a nice heavy duty plastic horn, but futuba horns will also work.

Yes Sir! I must admit im a newbie in truggy racing but this truggs is so easy to handle. Just a little mod and youre ready to kick some truggs ass out there. Shocks and spring are OK. I run 70wt front and 60wt rear. And yes it corners very well. The only thing I modified is the brake system. I replaced mine with jammin fiber disc and grind the material in the brake pads. as for my other equipment, see my sig.
