I've got two Mi4 LPs with twin point steering. One has a BLS551, one has the Savox. The Savox is rated at .09 versus the Futaba at .11. But twisting the steering on the bench, the Futaba still seems a pinch faster (same radio and receiver). The Savox is in my VTA car, and the Futaba in my 17.5 car. They both respond plenty fast on track. The Savox has been durable with no servo saver (all metal vs. 1 plastic in the futaba), and the gear sets are 1/3 or less the price of Futaba if I did have an issue.

A couple servos I definitely would NOT recommend are the Tower TS-140 and TS-160. The TS-140 is pretty fast, but I stripped the plastic gear pretty quickly (it might hold up well enough with a servo saver, not sure). The TS-160 is very, very slow, nowhere near it's rating, and drives like crap.
