I am using JR digital servo DZ8450, rated 0.08sec/60 degree, torque is 98oz/in. I think the holding power is over 133oz.
Now here is a few reason you want to get into some good servos for steering, Number 1 is the holding power it means it will hold it's position while under load meaning if you are going highspeed through a sweeper there is so much force pushing on the steering so high holding power would help throughout the turns.
Digital Servo is so precise, once you let go of the wheel it will return to perfect center which helps alot when you are exiting sweeper to straight away! and if you just barely touch it, it will start moving as your command!
speed is another thing, you want your steering servo to move fast to have fast steering respond!
But granted 0.08sec is too fast! I had to slow down the servo! I think if I had to get another steering servo I would go for the same JR digital.
Also I know Hitec makes some good servos too!
By the way I am just using a standard servo for throttle and brake.
Hope this will help!
