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.

Savox 1251, low profile, lite, metal gears, 0.09 fast, really resonably priced

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.
