The price range is somewhere in the VZ-SRG area. The RSX-level hurts a little bit too much. Second, you have to always remember that it's the total cost that counts. If something fails, (receiver, battery, throttle servo), I will loose the engine at the same time, in the worst case scenario...
(-3C and snowing today)
Also looking forward to some warmth!!!
I'm not a pro but I would hazard a guess that speed isn't really a major factor in 1/8 as it would be in, say 1/12?
As long as your speed is around the 0.10 mark then this would be fine. Savox are very popular in the UK at the moment for some reason. I have a few in both electric and nitro cars and never had a problem, they also look very cool!
I have heard bad things about the KO servo's not being as good as they once were, but then I suppose it depends who you talk to. I have a Futaba BLS servo in my 5s lipo buggy and it is also very very good and taken some serious bashing with no problems.
One thing I would say is, stay away from Team Associated servos. They offer some good specs but I had a few problems with them blowing fets. They are badged as AceRC.
