Default JR TC Servo recommendation

As of now, I have just used the stock JR servos that came with my JR XR3. Does anyone know of a good JR servo for a touring car?

Thanks!

im not sure about the model nos. but JR digital servos (or any other brand of digital servos) have a big advantage in terms of speed and torque over the standard servos. digital servos are expensive upgrades but for racers, the more responsive and stronger servos may lower laptimes.

4735 (older), 4750 (newer), and the 8450 (digital) are all great JR servos.

I've been running a JR ds8417 in my sedan. I got it a little over a year ago, and haven't had a single problem (knock on wood). Good speed, good torque, dead-on centering lap after lap after lap.

Haunted,
I got an Airtronics 94755 (digital) in a trade for some paint work, and tried it in my SP. I love it. The digitals are capable of reaching 100% torque @ 2deg off center, where it takes the standard servos around 16deg off center to reach 100% torque. Hence the outstanding centering difference.

Good luck bro

Digital Servos rock.... but if budget is important... the JR Z550 is the next servo up from your Z250 that came with the radio. I have run the 550 and have been happy with it.

The 4750 is an awsome servo and not to costly too if you can swig it get the Digi one its one of the best around. I use nothing but JR servo's in my cars and have never had a problem with them from the cheap ones to the Digi ones.

Any reason why you are only looking at JR servos? They are not bad..... but there are a lot of other GOOD servos out there from KO, Airtronics and Futaba!

I agree, there are other good digital servos out there like the Hitec 5925 and the KO 2143. I have a JR 8450 and the Hitec 5925. Overall the JR is just a bit smoother and a touch faster. (not that you need faster than .08)

Come on everyone, we all know JR ROCKS

just kidding, i have the JR R1 and bought the high speed digital servo, it rocks!!! combined with the features of the R1 i can do anything to the servo. I would recommend the high speed or high torque digital servos.

I think the catologue is at horizon's web site. just look for the digital ones. Dont buy from them, they are kinda expensive. My LHS had them cheaper.

Hi,

I use mostly JR servos in everything we own (12 electric/5 gas).
I did get a Futaba 9450 in a trade. this is a nice Digital servo. I have only run it once in sedans. and really liked it. but it's a backup servo right now.
