Those are usually used for qualifiying, as they provide less play at the wheels, but driver's that use them switch back to the quick release for mains.

I use a Ko radio with futaba servos. I use 9351 for both the steering and throttle.

Hi guys,

My local dealer suggests Sanwa Hyper ERG-VR for both throttle and steering.

He says they are better in combination with a lipo 7,4V receiver pack.

What do you guys think ? KO 2368 better ?

My transmitter is a Sanwa M11 DSSS 2,4Ghz.

Greetz,

Christoph

Go with the ones you can get and can afford. With any KO, Futaba and Sanwa you can't go wrong. A good performing servo for an acceptable price is the ACE DS1015 (sold by Thundertiger) and new on the market are the Savox servo's wich are exactly the same as the Team Orion Vortex servo's.

The specs you must have:
speed: 0.1 sec @60 degrees or faster
Gears: steer for sure metal, on throttle plastic can be used
Power: on steer 8kg or stronger, on throttle 5kg will work
type: with digital you can't go wrong but analogue can give more drivetime on 1 battery. With current batteries that is almost no issue.

It is wise to buy 3 the same so you have 1 spare you can fit both servo's in the car.
