I personally would recommend an Airtronics servos. You will pay a little more, but they are worth the cost. It is a better quality servo.

i love my jr servos, i run a z8800s in my t4 it works like a dream...

a 2wd buggy could get by with a JR z590 easily...not the fastest servo but it works fine, i have a z590 ($40 - 85 oz @ .17 sec) in my box for a backup to my z8800s...if you want a fast, strong servo but don't have $130 to spend look at the z4800s ($85 - 90 oz @ .11 sec)

if your just bashing look at the z590, its perfect for club level racing and bashing, i would still be using mine in my t4 if i didn't find a good deal on a z8800s on these forums, the z4800 is a great servo if you don't have the cash for an ultra fast digital servo, like the z8800 ($110) or the z9000 ($115) are two of their greatest surface servos.

Default Servo?

The reason I asked which losi. If it's an RTR they come with a "decent" servo.
jrz590, I think. However, if I was going to spend money on a servo. Airtronics 94357 is the only one worth the money. Put the JR servo in the raven. Put the 357 in the Losi.

You will be amazed at ow much difference a good servo makes.
Beg, borrow or steal. Find a used one. Whatever.

Good luck!

if your putting it into a 1/10th 2wd truck or buggy, go for High speed versions, HT versions are best for steering 1/8th scale or 4wd monster trucks
