Better servos are on the cards, but for now these servos are great and have taken big punishment and no failures so far.

What is the speed of this servo?

IM pretty sure its a relabeled Futaba S3305, tho dont quote me on it.

So its about .20 @ 6 volt.

I use mine to race with and the speed isnt a problem at all especialy for the price.

With a well charged Hump pack of 1500 MaH its sweet.

A servo with .20 will get the job done. But there are many servos under .15 that will perform more to your liking. So look for at least .15 or quicker. Several people have suggested the Ace servos. Ace 1313 is $75 and 173oz. @.13. The new Associated RC8 comes with these servos. For steering more torque is better, but when I used the Airtronics 357 (125@.07) for steering it was great for me. But I put the Ace 1015(200@.10) in for steering to slow it down and have more torque. The Air 357 is now in my GT2, and my 8 and 8T are all Ace 1015.

Air8- where did you hear that the RC8 was comming with servos? Or do you mean the RTR version will be comming with servos?

I would probably go with Futaba 9451 servos. My LHS has them for under 80 bucks. 125oz at .10 speed. I have used them and they have worked on a buggy just fine.

Ace are a great servo(s) for the price...

But for a liitle more ($90.00) you can get the HiTec 5995TG or 5955TG, and have the best. (IMO)

Well, MY BAD. I should have said the pictures I've seen used the Ace servos. You're right the RC8 does not come with electronics. They are still awesome servos.

A friend of mine introduced me to Blue Bird servos and I actually installed 2 of them in my buggy today. VERY NICE I must say. They are metal geared servos and very high quality IMO. Even nicer is how affordable they are.

http://www.nitrohouse.com/acces,_servos.htm

I installed the BMS630MG (190oz @ 0.17 sec) as my steering servo and the BMS617MG (110oz @ 0.09 sec) as my TB servo and they are AWESOME.

I tried the BB servos also. They work in 10th scale very well. But in 8th scale mine only lasted for 5-6 weekends. But I was not upset cause they were so cheap.

Yes, the BB servo is not bad. My cousin has one on this 1/8 buggy steering and it working without any problem. One thing not so ggod on this BB servo is when you do turning, the motor n gear sound u can hear it zi zag zi zag. But other that this all is good.
