Default Carpet steering servo

Can anyone recommend
1) a good, decently priced steering servo for touring car carpet racing.
2) the best one you can get regardless of price.

Thanks

best bang for the buck digital or anolog versions of hitec 925mg. I been using these for years and no one can claim 0.08sec at 110oz at such a low price. The digital is da best of the 2. Have not been paying to much attention to hitec as my servos are in perfect working condition but i do know there whole line up has be revamped with fancy lightweight gears and such so there could be newer servos that are even better then what i use but .08sec is about as fast as theyneed to be

Futaba S9550 - low profile, fast, and plenty of torque for racing.

Don't go for hitec servos at all. I think hitec uses drunk gerbils in their servos, as a result you won't find one very often that will find the same center more than once.

Futaba 9550...I got mine from www.servocity.com great site and free shipping.

It's realitivley inexpensive - $79.99US
Its fairly quick - .10 sec @ 6V
It's small in size so it will fit in any car and saves weight.
