Default Top rated steering servo for 1/8 truggy

I've got a rookie question from a seasoned expert. Just stepping into truggys, What is the best(high speed, high torque) servo on the market for the truggy, besides those rediculous jr HV servos. Suggestions? I'm a fan of futaba and airtronics when futaba doesnt have what I want.

For Futaba fans the 351 series of servos is hard to beat for steering and 451's for throttle and brake. 351's could be used for that too, but may be overkill. Airtronics? I love the 94359 or 358's. newer models of those are available now though. Futaba also has brushless versions of theirs out now too. Hitech titanium series are very good and can be run on lipo's without a regulator for super fast time and power.

The ACE DS1015 is a great steering servo for a truggy, I have these in my steering and my throttle of my RC8T, and they are very powerful.

They are around 14Kg and about 0.10 of a second

I have that one for steering in my 1/8 scale hydroplane, very good one. YOu can also look for Blue Bird servo's affordable and great quality. I have those in several models.

Airtronics 94780. over 400oz of torque and .10 transfer rate. Around $100 from most places. Great servo.

+1, I've got a HS5955TG (the old version of the 7955) in my CRT and its been in it for over 2 years and I've bent 3 aluminum servo horns on it and it still works great. The ACE 1015 is pretty good too, but I've had issue with the top bushing wearing out and causing the servo to not find center.

There was a thread about this a while ago, and I believe that the 7955 came out the winner due to durability as well as it's specs.

The conversation was enough to make me go out and buy one, and so far, I have not been disapointed.

I've ran ACE before, and was not very impressed. After a short period it blew. As for teh JR that I ran.. It got twitchy, FAAST.

I'm still testing the hitech.. But so far, so good.

+1 had mine for 3 years - still works great- I tried the Ace 1015 and going from 400oz to 200oz is a big difference. with 400oz your wheels hold during turning on rough tracks the 1015 just didnt cut it, had to loosen my servo saver to not put stress on the servo,

+1000 on the 7955 it is a quality piece of work and hitec says you can run it on a lipo unregulated, the service is kick ass, enough torque to Jack up a house (I have been told) What more could you want. Last season I used the jr 9100 and I thought it was the best until I purchased the 7955 early this year. What a difference it is more precise and. Better quality piece. Like it was said above get a 7955 and be done with it.
