Well JR is my choice haha, do I look for speed and lots of torque? Or just speed? I know JR has some good ones but what would be the ideal JR servo for a touring car?

I've owned a Quantum 1 and 4 Quantum 2's. Never had a problem with any of them. Just ordered a Sphere TC for the TC5.

If your thinking about using one of these with Lipo, I suggest you read the last few pages of the Core 5000 Lipo thread.
It would appear that the LiPo cutoff doesn't really do it's job.....at all .

I never trust and lipo cut offs on any speedo. If you just stop when you feel a reduction in power you will be safe. That usually leaves me with 6.5 to 6.2v.

It's intersting that some people have found a problem and some haven't, I wonder if it's to do with the power of the particular motor wind being used
