get either the futaba s9550 or the KO Propo PDS-2413ICS. Both are low profile speed around 0.12 and 0.10 and torque around 8.5 kg. Many pros are using them (including me, but I'm not a pro... )



cheers,

+1 for the futaba 9550

i recently replaced my erg-vrx with a 9550 on my BD, freed up a lot of space for easier esc & rx mounting the specs are just right for touring car application. also consider the KO low profile servo, it has slightly better specs than the 9550

Go with the Futaba 9550. While i was at the nats, there were many pro drivers using this servo. Its flawless, and very reliable. I havent had a problem with it.

many of the servos out there have very high torque and speed ratings ... but many will say these are too much anyway for ep touring car applications.... even the pros. as you will notice, many of the pros use the 9550 and i think the KO low profile servo is catching on as well and it isnt making them any slower than other pros out there. surikhran won the worklds with a 9550 and i believe so did rhienard. lemiuex placed 3rd in last year's worlds with a 9550 as well. no doubt there are other servos with better ratings but obviously they dont really mean you need them.

Andy Moore uses the KO 2413, Paul Lemieux the Futaba s9550... two very good drivers with both
