Default Do I need a faster servo?

I'm new to RC's and currently run a Losi xxx-4 G+. I purchased the Spectrum DX-3 radio and installed the metal servo Z590 that came with the radio.

Is this servo fast enough? I don't have a clue as to what a fast servo speed is? Can anyone recommend a servo that would work well with my xxx-4?

Thanks in advance
Eric

Actually, since you're new to RC's, I'd stick with the servo you have in there right now. I think stepping up to a servo like the aforementioned airtronics or a good servo like a z9000s from JR would be more of a hindrance to you right now. Most people new to the sport don't have the reaction time to even notice a difference from a high speed servo. After you've been running for a bit and can stay between the tubes and maintain good control of your car, then consider stepping up to a high speed servo. But if you just have to have one, both of the servos already mentioned are great and the JR z8800s or z9000s are excellent as well and KO Propo has some excellent units too.

I recommend the JR 8800s. I have one in my truck and it does a great job.

Said perfectly...Your Jr servo is, I believe, .15 @6 and 80-85oz of torque.

The Futaba 9402 coreless servo is also a good one. It goes for around 79.00.
