JR 590M. Durable, reasonably quick, and right on budget.

I agree with the JR Z590m also. You can pick these up on ebay all day long on the cheap.

hobbico makes some suprising great digitals for a low price. tower's site will give u the details. i cant remember teh # of the 1 i have in my b4, but boy was it an improvement over somethin like a 590 or other standard servo. 590s have a 3yr warranty, and with good reason. so somethin to think about

You can also pick up a HiTech HS-645MG for about that price, or the HS-625MG for cheaper if torgue isn't an issue - and both are metal geared.

The Futaba 9550 is very good at $80. You can usually buy them on here for about $50 shipped. With the 9551 out now, you may be able to convince someone to upgrade.

For 1/10 racing, how much minimum torque is needed? I am looking at an ACE 1313 w/
Torque (Kg-cm) / (oz.-in.) @ 6V: 12.5 / 173.6
Speed (sec / 60) @ 6V: 0.13

Is this too much torque?

For touring cars, you want something with above 100 oz/in torque and +- .10 speed. Also you want to keep weight in mind.
