Default Servo for B4?

What servo would you guys suggest for a B4? I'm looking for a high performing one that is reasonably priced. My radio system is a Spektrum DX3

I run a Airtronice 361 in my B4. It works great.

How much torque and speed would be needed for a B4?

The tires are pretty skinny, so not much torque is really required. I run the JR Standard Race Servo that came with my DX3. I put the MG Servo into my XX-4

I just started using the BlueBirds in my T4. So far I am happy with it. Had to turn down the D/R cause it was a little too fast. The truck turned in so fast, the rear wanted to keep coming around. I've only had it in for about 3 months now, so I don't have too much use. But for the price I am very happy.

Jr 8800s the only servo you need.

I run JRz9000s servos on all my 1/10th scale cars and trucks. I run JRz9000t on my Losi 8ight. I recently let a guy at the track borrow a JRz9000s when his standard servo gave up. He was running a Losi XXXT MF1, he said it was a completely different truck and he never had so much steering before. Guess what? He no has a JRz9000s of his own.

I prefer ace servos. They are really good for the dollar bill.

Mxer92,

Are ACE servos better than Airtronics. Some one told me they were!
