Default Recommend a Servo

Hello,

I was wondering if users could recommend some servo options for a 1/10th TC and 1/12th Pan. I know what servos are good for off road. But don't know if that transfers over to on road.

Thanks

For a little less money, Futaba 9551 for TC, Futaba 9650 for 1/12. Money no object, JR 9100s for TC, Futaba BLS 651 for 1/12.

Keep them coming guys! I also forgot to mention. I don't mind spending money on good servos. $100+ servos in off road racing for me is no problem if I know they are good servos.

Futaba S9650 or JR Z3650 for 12th, depending on which one fits your particular car best.

I was always a fan of the high end servos, but bought a savoxx since it matched the t3

Not sure which model but I grabbed their low profile one for the t3 and its terrific, no complaints here. I seen many people run them in off road as well with no issues at all.

I have only seen one break, it and was replaced no issues at all. Great company I would highly recommend them.
