Default low profile servo

I'm after a servo with a short length, that is quick, and has enough torque for a 1/10 4wd
Reason is, I dont have enough clearance between a large pinion and the servo.

Current dimensions are 41x38x20 mm.

I would like a servo that is shorter then 38mm.

found a futaba s9551 that would suit my car at 25.4 long although at $80us.

Anyone got any others bit cheaper.

Suppose you get what you pay for though!

I had a ZX-5 lazer and currently have a B44, but only used a servo that was shorter, but width was unchanged. Unless I am mistaken they are all similar in width for 1/10 scale.

What buggy are you looking to put it in?

sorry, yes that is what I meant. I am after a short 'length' servo. I realise all 1/10 servos have a standardized width which is 41mm or 1.6inch.

I might just put a 65t spur instead of buying another servo though.

hard to say no to those futabas. they take a beating and dont think twice bout stopping. i went back to futabas after a few yrs using other stuff. this 1 just went thru hell during a mod 2wd indoor season and none the worse for wear. have a 2nd 1 goin into the 4wd. dont like their new radios (at least how they are in my hand), but i still really like their servos.

I have been using the Futaba 9550 with NO issues over the past year, in 4wd. It is fast (.11 sec) and has plenty of torque (83.3)

hope that helps

I, too, have had zero issues with my KO Propo 2413. The Futaba 9550/9551 is also very reliable and will work well for 4WD off-road.

Now that is a lot of brass air fittings there is just about every type
of air fitting that you could want. Wholesale prices too. I guess these could be used as small water pipe fitting also. I
used some of the parts to make my babington wvo burner.
