I'm using JR servos. The one that came with the transmitter didn't last long in a race setting so I got another. I like JR servos. They are good for what I want to do right now.

Airtronics and KO are the top R/C car brands. Most pros use these radios and servos.

I run the Airtronics M11 and I use the 94360 servo. Its super fast has huge torque and is extremely strong.

It really depends on how much you're prepared to spend,some people swear by KO servos.

Ive got a futaba s9550 and im happy with it,it's digital with no fet lead to worry about and pretty small too which is a bonus
Whatever servo you go for,make sure you use a good transmitter that has endpoint adjustment,or you could ruin it in no time.

Default servo...

Airtronics 94452 precision servo. Was designed to work in helos, but works awesome in 1/10th scale. I have been using in TC and it works great.


IMHO

Futaba S9550/ KO PDS-2413ICS for their low-profile style, centering accuracy & strong torque in such a small package. But I have YET to use anything that's better than the JR9000s I'm currently using in one of my sedans. This thing is a killer servo

Airtronics came out with the 94362 servo not long ago, I have been using it a while now and love it. Super fast and precise!

Note that most pros run analog not digital servos. Digitals pull a lot more current and reduce you run time, can overload the BEC in some speedos, they can get hot and burn out if you have binding in your steering system and in may cases the high travel speed and resolution makes the car twitchy and overly responsive off center...which leads to more steering corrections...which will cost you 10th's per lap.

May top drivers are also slowing thier steering servos with their transmitters or running neg expo on steering to smooth thier cars off center feel.

I was running the Hitec 5925's and love them. I am going to try out the KO 2413 this season though. Mostly becasue of it's size. It's a decently fast (0.10 seconds) servo with more than enough torque (138 in/oz) for TC.
