The new brushless servos are in stock and there are some really high torque servos available there too.

Hitec makes two digital servos with over 300 oz of torque, and JR makes a digital servo with 430 oz of torque. I own the JR one and like it a lot.

The Futabas are the BLS9451. They are 147 oz/in @ .10 speed at 6 volts. I can tell you first hand they are way under rated! Very nice and at $100 ea they are very cost effective against other options in the industry.
Perfect for Buggy steering or throttle.
I believe this is the future of all servo manufacturers.

The ratings on servos are like the HP ratings on motors. You will see other motors with very high HP ratings and others with lower but the same performance on the track. If you compare, say a Hitec to a Futaba, the Futaba will loose hands down on numbers (I guess they are just being honest about their numbers and not bump it everytime they release a servo). However, try the Futaba and actually run it, go swap back and forth between other brands, and you will see that the Futaba is far more superior...... but then again, if you look at the ratings they are not. Heck, I can make a servo and name it the 'Jo ultimate digital servo' and rate it at 375oz and get people who look at those numbers to get to buy my servo (but you get the idea )

it would be interesting to test some servos and see what they actually are. i bet the numbers are way off. they CAN actually be 430oz or whatever, but at 30 volts!

i read on the futaba page that they have a 200 oz brushless servo with .13 speed.. i think when i get my new buggy im going with that servo for steering as i im pretty sure 200 on a buggy will get the job done. then ill get the 145 brushless to put on the thrt. as of right now im running the hitec 333oz servo in steering and a jr 8550 on thrt. im ready for something new to try..

Not to dispute you or anything, but I've had people tell me the same thing about Hitec... Hitec's model specs are usually 'under' stated by Hitec...

I've had the Hitec 9000 series digital supabad servos for at least two years of constant use, and they still seem to perform as they did new... I have the '97 & '98 models.

Which one Futaba or Hitec is 430oz?

Hitec has one putting out 333oz and another that puts out 416oz (7.4v).

I didn't think Futaba made a servo with torque that high, but I'm usually wrong.

I guess I should have said the Hitec was the robot servo. Oh well. But yep you are correct.
