Joel recomends Hitec 925mg digital or any hi end hitec servos

Paul is pretty fast too so i respect his slower futaba servo too

IMO, Hitek doesn't make a high-end digital servo.

Personally, I use a JR DZ9000S, though it may be overkill. Servo performance seems less critical in TC than in my previous R/C sport.

JR Z8800S is a good quality servo, .08 transit time, plenty of torque. Maybe overkill?

Well heres a hot tip the JR Z9000S has to be shimmed for the servo horn to miss the top plate.

For the T2 go with either the Futaba S9550 or the KO 2413.

who told you that this was a smart statement. Before you put stuff in writing you should check you facts. I don't care which one you get as long as it can turn the car, but don't post false info.

Great, 14 servos that don't center. Don't feel bad though, my Airtronics 94360 doesn't center either. The JR 9000s is my next victim.

Why would I feel bad its not my company you fool!

First off I can see that your an a$$ that actually bought and tested all of these servos to know this FACT. Th comment I was responding to is that there is no such thing as a high end hitec digital servo. Which is false 115.00 plus dollars is high end. So if you like airtronics stuff that great I am not going to talk bad about Airtronics because I can not back it up with facts. Nor can you back up your centering claim.

I dont work for Hitec, nor do you work for Airtronics so I am not pushing any company that doent make me any money (like foolish people like you) I am just stating that they make the servos and its not an opinion its a fact you a$$.

High price doesn't make a servo high-end, it just makes it expensive.
