the car you picked is great, even though I like Associated, I would go with the 9602 or the 9650 for the servo, the 9650 id digital, and as always if you want to go fast, go Banzai

Fist off crc is a great 12th scale car.. they are always in a mains at every race...

for a servo. if u dont want to spend much, and want a good servo get a hitec 225mg it has great torque, power and is fast...

it sells for about 30 bucks retail... and has metal gears... i had one i ran all summer inmy 10th scale and it workwed awesome...plus ity is plenty small to...

I liked my CRC CK but I though it was easier to drive my RC12L3. When I get m T-Force in Aug. I'm gonna use a KO 949. It's super fast and it's programable.

Hey guys has anyone tried the Futaba 3101?
I am thinking of getting one for my 12l3 and it seems to have the right size and logical price.
Any help would be appreciated.

the digital Ko Propo servo is a popular choice for 12th scale and pan cars at the track i race at. its the PDS-949 ICS.
