Ran in several truggys. I love that servo. Is/was pretty fast (.13) and had good torque. Centered dead on all the time, every time.

That being said, I just picked up a Hitec 7950 for a shot. As good as it's suppose to be, it's going to have to earn me over or I'll be looking to go KO again.
Good choice. 7950 is a killer servo. While I agree that you can run a lower torque servo without too many issues, the more the better in my opinion. Especially if you run on high bite a lot.

7950 is a much better servo than the 7954. He already bought a 7950, so I can't imagine that he would want to take a step backwards.

You might not be able to, but obviously itbvolks can. So why try to sway him to a lesser servo?

itbvolks, you made the right decision. 7950 for the win!

Default KO

KO servo's all the way!!! The PDS 2367 or 2368 servo's are still the best out there! Add the aluminium top case and you've got a bulletproof servo for your steering. Stock specs on 6.0V are : 0.10sec / 11.5kg for the 2367 and 0.15sec / 14kgs for the 2368.
I run LiPo direct so the specs are now 0.08sec / 13.5kgs and 0.12sec / 16kgs respectively.

If your into reliable strong servo's which are still 100% made in Japan then i would suggest KO Propo servo's.
