I use a Hitec 7955Tg for my steering. It puts out 333oz. of torque so it's really strong and great for steering.
For throttle I use a Futaba S9351 because it has enough torque to apply the brakes and it's fast.

It's not the fastest or strongest out there but the Futaba 9351 has always been very good to me. It's my go to servo.

be warned tho if you plan to run a 9351 on Steering....Have a extra 5pack of the white plastic gears on hand as they are known to strip..the BLS they have gone to a brass gear so its no longer an issue....bit i have still seem my fair share of BLS94's and 93's go up in smoke.

I run, Savox servos running the SC1256 servo on the steering and the SC1258 on the throttle. They are great servo's extremely light.. I have been running mince for a few weeks.. and noticed a huge difference from mo OK hitec servo's. They are pritt cheap compared to some of the servo's on the market, Plus few of the top UK drivers are now running them.. so they cant be bad haha

I would recommend you check them out!

I have been using Hitec servos for a few years now and I won't use anything else.

I have a 7955TG for steering and a 5955TG for throttle on my truggy and I use a 5997TG for both steering and throttle for my buggy.

See signature. The 79xx series from Hitec is the new versions of the 59xx series.

I've ran Ace servos and they perform well. I did have one 1313 die on me, but I think it was just a bad batch.

HiTech does have that 3 year warranty though!
