the hitec servo should be HS225MG. but try not to use hitec servos, they'll make the driver look drunk...car dont go straight down the straight..
the servo dont center properly.

Cheap is not the reason to buy a 3550, it's an excellent servo and prefered by many over all the others. It's about the same price as the 9602 anyway

I am not one yet. I don't have a Hitec or JR servo yet. So you can't call me that yet.

That's because they use drunk gerbils in their servos. There's a picture of one I set free in my avatar there.

Radio-car-racer I am running mine with the .075 T bar and the tweek screws in the t bar and it is working very well. It seems to just be a matter of personal preference for each drivers driving style.

It may not matter what servo goes in the car......I still may look like I'm driving drunk !!!

Thanks all for the servo info ....

Could anyone post a picture of a nicely wired t-force.....brushed motor.....I'm trying to eliminate the jungle vine look !!!

Thanks Roy
