Default I have this servo, but it's weak and...

it says that it's a high torque servo and it's really not. It's not even strong enough to turn the wheels. Anyone know of one, that's not very much money that would be powerful?

whats not much money?

when i started racing, i had great luck with these, S3305, 35$ and as good as any 50-60$ servo i have used, but a bit slow

the next step i think would be ace1313 73$

Well worth it, you also might want to take a look at this beast
http://www3.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...?&I=LXPHD6&P=7

You should be able to get it down around $80 if you search online for some tower hobbies coupons.

333 oz-in .15

You'll have no problems getting the wheels to turn with this one

This one should be better than what you have and is only $48
http://www3.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...?&I=LXPHD5&P=7

might be a little weak for competitive racing though.

Keep your eye out in the FS forum I picked up 3 Airtronics 94359's (200 oz-in .10) for $100 shipped

I'm putting it in a Hellfire. I know you guys hate them, but that's what I have and it needs a new servo. So, I need to know what to get it...

With the MT you're going to need something strong, I'd get the Tower TS170 I linked you to earlier, it's a rebaged OEM'd Hitech HS-7955TG. Titanium Gears, and 333 oz-in it should last you forever. Don't skimp on the steering servo. You can go a little cheaper on the throttle/brake.

Check to see if your steering is binding. I have used those servos in my truggy and they did fine. They have .13 speed and about 210oz of torque. Thats what the specs say.

Binding is when something is keeping something from moving freely. un-hook your servo and see if you can trun your steering with your hands really easy.
