Isnt the futaba a little slow though? Im used to running the hitec 5925 and that says its .5 faster! Is the futaba not as fast? Or I heard that sometimes companies write down the rates that may not be true. ????

The 9550 is listed at .11 @ 6V and the 5925 is listed at .08 @ 6V on Tower. Any servo around .10 is pretty fast an onroad car.

Anyway, I went with the 9550 because it's fast, light and gives me more room on the chassis for other electronics.

KO 2123, duhhh!

If your looking for a servo for this weekend I've got a 2113 you can borrow to test out if you want. Same as the 2123 cept its analog and plastic gears.....

Any servo over .08 is SLOW!

even though the Ko Propo servo is Pimp and the 9550 is small

the world chapion and many other top drivers run the Futaba 9451

it really all depends on what car you run and also what surface and class you run it in

I personally run the 9451 yet I have a 9550 they ae both great servos, I just think that the 9451 gets the job done better and quicker

JR8450 hands down the best on the market moves as fast as you can move your hand (probably faster) and has the holding power to run just about anything!!! I ran mine for 2 years in offroad and now have it in my touring car

I totally agree with Bob Barry, JR's 8450 is a awesome servo. I wouldn't buy anything else.

Did you ever had any problems with the Futaba S9550 to center correctly? I bought one recently and had these type of problems. Maybe because it is so slim, it is not really heavy duty. This is my impression but maybe I am wrong ey

I replaced it with the Sanwa Hyper ERG-VRX (0.07 sec / 8.0 Kg) and was really impressed. This is what I call a professional servo with a heatsink built-in, etc
