Default which servo for truggy steering?

i have a savox 1267 or a svaox 1268, which would you put as steering in a truggy? They are high-voltage and i am running them at lipo voltage.

Of those 2 defiantly the 1268. You want as much torque as possible to trun large heave truggy wheels.

Turn earlier. lol

.15 on a high torque servo is more than fast enough for a truggy.

I used to go with the uber fast ones but I have found the higher torques with decent speed to be the smoothest.

Hitec 7955 is all I've run the last few years and I love it, and love their service even more..NOTHING beats Hitec service.

Default Futaba BLS 152

I Fitted a Futaba bls152 servo to my truggy for steering about a year and a half ago, They are more an aviation based servo and are ever so slightly oversized (i had to file my radio tray slightly to make fit)

Specs are 31kg and .14 sec which makes it an absolute beast, After 1.5 years of solid racing it's still going strong.. i just checked the gears for play as i currently have the tray out of the truck and there is no play what so ever

They are dear to buy but if i get two or more years racing out of it that would make it a very cheap servo

I am still yet to see or hear anyone running one

Worth a look if you want a tough servo for truggy steering
