what you want is a servo with high speed and torque along with metal gears....
the brand is up to you..

I use the KO2123FET servo. Super fast and powerful and KO quality.
If you need the space, the you could go for a low-profile servo, like the HS-77BB

For a TC3 I would say anywhere between .06 to .010 for it's speed......and "at least" 80 lbs torque........metal gears for durability....digital...if thats your preference....half the pros still chose not to run digital.......I perfer airtronics....like the 94758

I used a JR racing high torque servo when I ran the TC3. a high torque servo came highly recommended.

I'm using a Hitec HS-605BB servo I got brand new, in box for $25. 94oz and 0.13 sec @ 6.0V. It has worked flawlessly so far.

I strictly run jr 8450's.

but at 120 each they get costly.... I have played with the idea of a 9451.... Anyone using one of those for steering currently? Can you give me a thumbs up or down on the 9451?

Default F9402

what can you say bout the Futaba 9402 for the TC3?

i just bought one for my car, it feels and performs the same with my old s3003 at my local track's layout, F9402 is just as weak as the s3003 or
is it the set-up of my car?

an experienced racer at my local track set my car's suspension(based from his winning xray, most racers here switched to xray), can i still tweak my tc3? i'm losing patience, i'm trying my best not switching to my other car(T1R), I still think TC3s rule.

You definitely don't see much of its difference in a while co'z its on the response from the receiver that transmits the signal on which to go??.. digital still the best fro TC3... I used futaba 9451 so far its great!!!..
