i havent seen many people with BL servo because its a litle less fast but t has abit more torque but for your parking bashing i would go for a normal servo , i wouldnt recomend the best best as you won't race you dont need a expensive and fast servo.

I am also looking at the Airtronics 94357 and the Futaba S9551

So the 4 on this postI have it narrowed down to.......not sure what the parameters are that I shoud be looking at... guess high quality bang for the buck based on the car I am building.

For touring car racing you want the fastest and smoothest servo you can get. In such a light car tourque doesn't matter a whole lot.
