Gary,
Any of the low profile servos work fine in 4WD.. plus they give a bit more room on the chassis. Either Futaba 9550 or KO2413 are good

A Futaba 9451 would also do the job - digital high speed, high torque. I use in my 2WD but it would have more than enough torque for 4WD.

i got a hitec 5955 titanium geared servo...much much better than anything ive had before. picked it up for 100 bucks. look around and you might just get one cheaper

good for 1/8 buggies and monster trucks. fast enough too (.15 secs, 24kg/cm) perhaps the lighter duty version which is faster might be better...couldnt be happerier with mine though

Have used on of these for a little while now....

Absolutley brilliant!

You can look at these too if the budget is a bit stretched / stressed!

The low profiles are also good (Futaba or KO), just make sure you put a 4700uf capacitor across the servo power if you're going to run mod. Those servos use a bit more power and you will get a glitch or shutdown on heavy acceleration.

If you can find the HTHS-5955TG for a $100.00 that is a great price. The wholesale price on one of those are $120.00 cost.

Take Care,
Cheers, Patrick
