Hitec 7955's.
Fast, powerful, can be run lipo unregulated.

Expensive but they last, and repairs are resonably priced.

I don't want to stir the pot here, because there seems to be an abundance of love for hitec servos.

I just wouldn't call the 7955 'fast'. If anything its totally average in the speed department. I know many guys run an exponnetial, but still....'fast'?

Futaba and JR make great servos as well

I use the JR 9100s for throttle and the hitec 7955TG for steering, I think this is a great combo

Nothing but love for the 7955's. It is the only servo I will buy right now. Strong and plenty fast for me, of course I do run them at 7.4 volts.

Try 'em with 8.4 volts going thru them. They're fast enough,and they don't slow down as much as my Airtronics or Futaba servos when you apply a load to them, like makeing the car steer back and forth while held on carpet. My 220 oz Airtronics servo is a dog when its loaded.

I'm running -40% expo!

The 7955 can handle 2 cell lipo. A 2 cell lipo(7.4v) is really 8.4v when fully charged.
