Default Need some servo advice! =P

Im looking for some advise as to what torque / speed servos to get for 200mm car.

It seems to me, the smaller cars would need more speed in the steering than torque. But IDK

What would be the very best choices?

what do you have?

any insight is VERY much appreciated, This noob is still learning.

Regards,
Jon

Throttle/brake? Try asking that question in the Nitro On-Road forum. Not needed for an Electric TC.

Steering Speed is fairly important. For TC, .11 sec or faster: JR8800s, Futaba 9551, Futaba BLS451, etc.

i have used the airtronics 94357 and the jr 9000s in my kyosho v1rrr evo 2 for both steering and throttle. i prefer the airtronics 94358 for steering even though is has a bit less torque. you did not mention what type of car you were using.each car might not respond the same.just giving you this info as reference. but you would have to chose what makes you most comfortable.
