Default Which Steering servo for a TC3?

Hi guys,

Just got my hands on a second hand TC3 here in Australia, and am slowly decking it out for running in 540 and stock classes. Just wondering what sort of servo would be best to run as a steering servo in the car? I'm using a Futaba 2PL if that makes any difference

Cheers!

I asked this question around my local club and a lot of the guys recommended the Hitec HS-5925MG. It's a little pricey but you won't be upgrading from it any time soon. I'm not saying it's the best, just what was recommended to me.

I'll second the S9550; awesome servo. The Futaba S9451 is another great choice; fast & powerfull.

if you are only racing 540 a smaller servo makes sense too, less weight

Futaba S9550. Good performance and it will leave you with some extra room to mount your ESC and Reciever.
