Default B4 Servo

I need a good servo for dirt road races. The latest one i had, everytime you just bump into the black tubing it would get offset. Or if you are taking a turn at a higher speed, it does the same thing.

Im looking for a durable servo that will fight in to the B4. Thanks!

The hot ticket around here is the Futaba 9350.

One of the best servo`s for that price range is the Hobbico CS-160, is fast enough and digital/metal gears etc. I have one in my RC10GT and it has no worries at all on the steering, on a B4 it will be even stronger.

Even the CS-140 would work well for even $10 less. 83 oz. of torque & 0.13 sec speed is plenty for off-road.

The JR Z590M is a good servo for 1/10 scale electrics. It is very durable (metal gears) and has a decent price too at around 39.00.

^ doesn't have ball bearings though. I'd recommend a Hitec 625MG. I have one paired with a kimbrough gas car/truck servo saver in my Rustler and I love it. You should be able to pick one up used for around $20. If you're looking to go digital, get a 5625MG. Faster and torquier.

hey, 9350 is nice but its meant for 1/8 nitro buggies, lots of speed and torque, however the current drain is there, especially when your bat is low. other then that, def worth the cash!

A hitec 525MG is a nice cheap buggy servo... look for speed more than torque

Meh

I bought my B4 used a long time ago and the retard who owned the car before broke a 1/16th tip off in the screw that holds the servo in...
but nevertheless i'm too lazy to dremel the screw out or put my new JR in.

I am also looking for a servo for my B4 as well as my 4wd. Any other suggestions? What specs should I be looking at?
