Savox 1251MG. Great metal gear, high speed, low profile servo for around 63 bucks. www.savoxusa.com

Here's a direct link:

There are several good ones in the $60-70 range

Personally, I like the Savox 1251MG low profile servo. It's fast, has plenty of torque and it's a good price.

There are a few other brands with near identical specs to this servo. Spektrum has one (S6070) and I believe Orion has one too.


A lot of guys swear by KO propo, Hitec, or Futaba servos, but the only servos these companies have that are close to the specs of something like my Savox, cost twice as much or more.

I've never had a problem with glitching, even with no rx cap, but I've heard of others having issues, because these servos tend to be a bit power hungry.

Read about those issues too. Never had a problem myself in either my VTA or Gt car using Novak power. Apparently the problem is primarily with the ESC's that have lower BEC output current so it's not a direct problem with the servo but BEC output is something to look at when putting together your electronics package.

Spektrum got some affordable performance servos, they're same as JR but cheaper.

Indeed they do using a digital coreless mini mg servo in my pan car for less than 35 bucks n that was instore hobby store price not even online yet where they are prob cheaper. Other brand are like 10 to 20 more for the same type servo tech especially digital. And for minis to be in the same price range as the full size is scarry at times.

And btw i got a futaba 9551 for sale 54 shipped in usa

You would want around 100oz on the torque and 0.10 or less on speed. I run a PDS-2413 KO servo in all my cars.

Skip any recommended numbers. The basics are this....the higher the torque the better....the faster the speed the better !! When dealing with High Speed servos you're likely to see great speed numbers and lower torque numbers. look for metal gears, good speed and good torque for the BEST PRICE THAT YOU CAN AFFORD. There's plenty of good ones out there so don't get conned into spending big money just because it's got a fancy name.

buy a cheap one u get what u pay for unless you try it yourself and risk losing your money in trial and error.... I fell into that trap.. I bought 2 high priced servos and they were perfect from day one and havent let me down once... its been 3 years and not a problem....

For touring the faster the better and torque well get the highest you can... simple... dont need to much torque to run in any on road car but if u wanna use it in a offroad car or something else make sure u get the right one to do both jobs

That Specktrum s6070 looks like a good deal.
