Default DS1015 servo....overkill for my B4?

At work, so I can't try it out right now, but I was thinking of dropping it in for a race this weekend.

Its all personal preference.

I run a cheap AE MG servo that comes with the RTR T4 kit in my B4 and I love it. Fast response, if I had a faster servo in there I would have too much steering. This servo along with my JConcepts Groovy's up front and I am very happy.

Oh! I've got one of those. It came out of my RC8. Right now, I am using the Spektrum Z590 servo.

Out of these 3, which do you think would be the quickest?

Spektrum Z590
JR 590
AE MG

I like my steering to be really "snappy", granted none of these servos achieve that effect, I don't have much as far as servos, except my AE DS1015...that thing will steer a Chevy truck.

You can always turn down the servo in the radio. I have always put the fastest one in the car and dial it out the 4pk. There for if i need it later its there....

Run the 1015 its the best!

Well you can think of it like this.....you won't have to worry about your servo failing you in a race.

Yeah, I figured someone would say that. But I mean, this servo could steer an 18 wheeler. I wanna try it out when I get home. I hope it doesn't sling the car all over the track too much

Heh yeah...I mean, as long as I get a handful of practice laps in, I'll be fine. If it works out really well, I will pick up another one, so I'm not swapping it between my RC8 and my B4.

Yeah but those servos have nothing for tourqe. There anogle, and slow. I would just spend the money and buy a good servo. Orion as a really good servo that only 84.94. 195oz of tourqe .09 tranmite time.

The DS 1015 would be great in a B4. That's what I run.

Porky, How much torque do you think you need for a b4 Even 85oz is probably enough to move that weak servo saver. I do agree they are a bit slow for racing.
