I would recommend buying the fastest and strongest your budget allows. Anything with around 200 oz/in of torque with a speed of .13 or less will do nicely.

I really like Hitec servos, especially the Titanium geared servos. Hitec has a great warranty as well. I has fried a couple of Hitec tiatanium geared servos due to user error and I sent them in to Hitec and a few days later I had a brand new servo waiting for me at my door step.

Hitec = great warranty and customer service.

Same thing that happened to be. I fried a servo because of my fault, I sent it in and got it fixed, also called them up and the guy I talked to was very kind in explaining what happened. Good servos

Hitec Ti geared over here.

ive played with my fair share of Ace's and imo they are fast and powerful...but lack in reliability.

jr z9100t for anything steering no doubt. I watched a couple ace servos go out today on bugs at the track. ace were cool for a sec but no way anymore. id go the best hitech or jr servo you can get. over $100 but if your gonna be in the hobby for more than a year then dont waste time and money on servos. waste it on some other stuff

its kinda sad....but i honestly like hearing about Ace's failing....i know they are a impressive servo the first time you feel them...but once you feel that burn from ANOTHER gear set goin on just plain old raping your a-main place right from your fingers.....you'll feel the same hatred i do towards them.
