Default Truggy Servo whats the BEST OUT?

Just wondering what the best servo is on the market for steering in a truggy? Most power and speed and warranty. THE BEST.

For all out power and torque, I like to use the Hitec 5955 or 5995 which have been replaced by the 79XX series. For throttle control I always use and trust futaba digitials for most of the nitro powered vehicles.

JR would be tops in power and warranty. Not sure on speed. Top quallity for me is Futaba or Airtronics. Top of the line Hitec's seem to be really tough.

My choice, Futaba BLS352 or BLS351. Go brushless...... Got a BLS351 coming in the mail for a back-up. Right now I'm running an Airtronics "Rock Crusher" in my truggy and love it. It does suck the power though.

+however many times on the Hitec 79XX I have the 5955 and want the 7950's so I can go unregulated lipo without being paranoid of a melt down.

I cant believe none of you recommended the JR 9100's I'll be damned if that is not the strongest servo to date I have ever run..It can lift a house off its foundation. 333Oz. at 6 volt, That's almost 21 Pounds!!!

Don't get me started with JR.. I ran JR for almost 2 years, and i found myself flooded with servos. I'd have 4 in my cars, 4 in my box, 4 at JR service getting repaired. what a nightmare! I have been running the futaba BLS's now for almost a year, and haven't blown 1. No BS I must have sent JR 15 servos in 2 years. My friend who runs for JR even had problems with the 9100's.

Hitec 7955TG is also 333Oz of torque

The 7955TG is also supposedly unregulated LiPo safe, for something like 370oz of torque...

They're probably still availiable for dirt cheap, as the new officially LiPo safe servos are coming...

The new 7950TH @ 6 volts is good for 403oz of torque

+1 the 7950 will be the BEST servo on the market. And the 7940 is not too shabby for throttle too. I absolutely love Hitec's titanium gear servos. Running 5955 in truggy right now for steering and loving it. But if you want the BEST its the 7950.
