Default Running 2 94358 servos in a truggy

Is this servo fast enough & also have enough torque to run in the steering or to run throttle/brake in a truggy ????

Maybe for throttle/brake but not for steering.

Why is it a problem for steering ? The 94358 has the torque to turn the big wheels.The 94357 has the speed but not the torque of the 94358.I currently run in my buggy 94357 in the throttle/brake and the 94358 in my steering !

ummm i'd say it be fine in a truggy, not the most powerful but definetely very acceptable.

Torque: 160 oz/in @ 4.8V, 200 oz/in @ 6.0V
Transit Time: 0.13 sec/60 degrees @ 4.8V, 0.10 sec/60 degrees @ 6.0V

The 358 is too weak and slow for a truggy IMO. Not to mention they burn out all the time. My life got a lot better the day I dropped all Airtronics. Get an Ace digital #DS1015 and save yourself the hassle.

Wow, can't way I've ever seen any Aitronics servo burn out. But thats just over the last 2 years working at a hobby shop.

I ran a 94360 in an STR at the Canadian indoor nats a couple weeks ago and it was great, 125oz/in .07 sec/60*. The 94358 would be great, even more torque. Although I've got to say I would really recommend getting a digital servo instead, especially if you have a high speed response radio. I picked up a KO 2367, and I couldn't believe how much faster and responsive it felt compared to my Airtronics 94359.

Thanks wheelnut,

I just got a pair of 94358 servos off ebay for 120 so I guess that is what I am stuck with for now.Maybe sometime in the future we will race together as you are from the north and I am somewhat close.

Nothing wrong with the 358's....

There are some Airtronics haters, and it seems everyone is jumping on the ACE bandwagon... but good grief, the 357-360 are all awesome servos. The top Airtronics line have been the most popular hihg end servos for years, going all the way back to the 156/157. I still have one of those and it's still working... gotta be at least 10 years old...

The other nice thing is that Airtronics will fix most servos, even out of warranty. I killed 2 last weekend because my carb was binding, and my brake epa was set too high. Just sent 'em in yesterday to get fixed instead of spending another $200 for new servos. The specs are great. But whatever floats you boat. I also like it because Aitronics is just a days shipping away so repairs come in quite fast.

+1 on 358s

I have them in a few cars for different stuff, so do a couple of my friends and none of us has ever killed one, ever. You totally can't go wrong with them...if you're enough of a stud to notice .03 second to 60*, then you're way out of our league anyways......but you wouldn't be asking here if you were, so you should be plenty safe.
