Default whats the best servo ....?

well i have taken some time off from rc racing for about a year now, and had my airtronics 94737 go bad ( although i have had it since 99). so now im stuck with no servo, but want to get the best servo i can. for the money.
Any suggestions would be appreciated. the servo would be used for a touring car.

I use a KO 2123FET servo in my TC3 and I love it, I never have to worry about it and it's the quickest servo ever.
It's a 7.2v digital servo, so that's cool.

In my opinion for a touring car, as long as it has metal gears with a torque rating no less than around 100 to 115lbs, and a speed of .07 or .06........I like the Airtronics 94757 or 94758 digital's

Hello,

I think you meant 100 to 115 oz...

In my opinion, I love the JR Z8450...Had it for years now, and still good~

i am still looking at diffrent brands but i am leaning toward getting kopropo's stuff. simply because i have had the m8 for about six years, and want a change to a ex-10 helios. what i am afraid of though is that i might have glitching or something because of mixing brands or something. But maybe there are other brands im not looking into, please keep the suggestions comming

I recently switched to a Hitec 6965 in my Xray. I love it. Fast, light, and about $20 easier on the wallet than the equivalent Futaba, Airtronics, and KO versions.

Truth be told though you cac't really go wrong with any of the upper tier servos.

i use the M8 75mhz with a Futaba rx, ive experienced no glitching so far. Just use the Airtronics crystals. As for the servo get the Futaba 9550 lighter than most servos and perfect for tight spaces
