Default 1/8 buggy servo's?

I have been using a 945MG and 925MG for quite some time. The 925MG died causing a runaway killing a RB Mods V-spec that barely had a gallon on it. Now I have one of the Ti gear ones on throttle. Looking to replace both on my buggy, once again with a Vspec (although not modded this time) motor.

Was considering the 7985MG for steering and 7965MG for throttle, or maybe the giant 7955TG for steering. I may also get the 7955TG and try it in my buggy then move it to a rock crawler I was thinking of getting. Is the 7955TG just too much torque (333!!) or what. I liked the 7985MG for the .02 speed increase.

With price as no real limit, whats the best? I was considering the new futaba BL servo's, 451 and 351, but I have always had hitec servo's. Getting futaba would match my radio though!

HaHa I dont think there's such thing as too much torque but 333 is probably more than necessary. If there's no real limitations on price I would say go with pretty much the best you can get. The only things I would recommend are making sure you put an extra fast servo on your throttle because it's supposed to make a big difference in the way the car drives and that you might want to trade off that 333 oz. for something a little faster, but I think that servo would work decnt as well. IMO

The 7985MG and 7965MG are what I ended up deciding on. The 7955 is just too much at 333oz, and adds .02 sec. The 7985mg has more torque than what I have now, and same goes for 7965mg, and I believe both are faster. We shall see.

For steering i want my car to turn no matter what so i run the hitec 5955tg, (333oz)i run the jr9000s for my throttle because as someone said thier customer service is great and getting them replaced for free is quick and painless. I also have a jr9000t for backup but that hitec is 2 years old and still kickin' butt.

Looks like PhillyB already made his choice to go with Hitec servos, but I would also have to recommend the JR 9100T. I used this in my Baja 5B for steering duty and it was strong enough for that, and then when I burned out my second Hitec 965MG on the throttle for my Losi 8ight, I dropped in the 9100T. Haven't had a problem since. It's a bit slower than the 965MG, but it's still got a transit time of 0.15s. I may at some point buy the 9100S, as the transit time on that thing is awesome at 0.06s, but I'm good for now. BTW, Hitec was very good about replacing both burned out 965MG's, but I'm just afraid to chance it again with their servos.

I run the JR9100Ss for both throttle and steering because my RC8 doesn't need a ton of torque to steer. They're outstanding servos with a great warranty. You get almost an identical servo if you go with the JR8717 (which is designed for aircraft application). Both are excellent and fast!

I have to agree with moeman, JR9100's for both applications, never be disappointed again!

Default 9100t 9100s

9100t (torque) it is a ton at 333 oz with .15 transit, the last guy was referring to the 9100s (speed) is about 200 oz with a blistering .06.

I love that crazy fast transit for quick counter steer and back movements. I run the 9100s for steering on the truggy and am content with it's ability to hold the corner. We don't have any real high bite track though.
