Default Throttle Servo Recommendation for an RC8

I noticed the other day that my Throttle Servo is vibrating a bit. Is this an indication that there's a problem brewing? It's one that came with my Spektrum DX3 Radio. Any recommendations on a good Throttle Servo as a replacement? I have a really nice HiTech Stearing Servo in the buggy.

JR 8717, or 9100s. The 8717 has a bit more torque.

I just put in JR 9100Ss for both steering and throttle and I LOVE THEM. I agree with largeorangefont though - my buddy has the 8717s for both and they're just as nice.

I'd go with whatever servo's you can get locally with at least 125in/oz of torque and nothing slower than a 0.12 for speed.

I am running Futaba servo's and the only servo's I would go back to are the Ace servo's which you can get with an Associated badge on them as well.

Are you saying that the ACE servo's are just a sticker change from Associated? Which Associated models are their matches?

ACE DS1313 = AE DS1313
and
ACE DS1015 = AE DS1015

I believe. Same specs anyway.

The only difference I can find is the stcker and the price tag

I have been running ACE servos in my MBX5R for about a year and I race about every weekend somewhere. I am also not easy on the steer servo (saver cranked down pretty tight). I have never had problem with the ACE's, still smooth and strong.

I don't want to steal the thread, but I need some advice from experienced racers. I use JR servos and they're very durable. However, which servo do you use for steering and throttle ? Do you use the "torque" servo for the steering or the throttle ? Same question for the "speed" servo.

When i purchase my RC8 in a couple of weeks i'm going to use an Airtronics 94360 for my throttle and brake and a 94359 for my steering. This is also the same set up I run in my MBX5T truggy for the exception my throttle servo is a 94361.

I think that most people use the "Speed" servo on the throttle and the "Torque" servo on the steering.

Torque is more important in the steering as it morks harder strength wise - throttle servo needs some torque to handle the brakes. Personally i go for the same in both, better off going over the top with torque.

I think of it like an engine in a truck pulling things about. The more torque in the engine the less you need to strain it to pull things around.

Try and pull trailers around by a car with a 1600 engine and that engine is going to be strained and won't last very long...
