Default Servo for TC car

Can someone recommend a good servo for a HB TCX TC car. Been in off road sometime and now going to give on road a go. I have run XP 1313 and 1015's in my off road stuff.

Do you recommend the shorter servo's?

I went with a Savox 1251 for my TC because its short, light, fast, metal geared, relatively high torque and for a decent price.

You can check and browse our website to find the perfect and affordable servo for your rc car. nitrokings.com

But I would recommend you the SAVOX High Speed Digital Servo .048/69 SAVSH1290MG.

nitrokings could you stop making advertisment please ? you've been here for less than one day and it's already bothering me.

Back on topic : I heard good comments about sav÷x, but never tried it.

The ko 2413 and futaba 9550-51 are excellent.

Savox servos are pretty amp hungry, I found that unless your BEC can deliver a steady 2.5A they'll cause problems.

What scale are you refering to 1/10 or 1/12?
