Default What servo for TC3 and Vta/touring car

just wondered what was everyones fav servo for a TC3 used in racing for VTA and or touring or are they totally driffrent servos depending on the class?

I am a Hitec fan, but also like Futaba and know lot of car guys use Savox.

Just wondered what servos were good enough, seems everyone using digital now days. Going to build a TC3 for VTA to start but later it could go to Touring who knows. Would rather not pay $75 for a servo. Thanks

futaba 9550 should be a cheap servo to get used now, I have used one for 3 or 4 seasons of racing with no problems at all.

savox and ace servos are good too

Using the low-profile Savox in my TC6. Seems to work just fine and was under $75 when I bought it. Had a Futaba 9550 that worked nicely and I'd still be using it had I not destroyed the gears.

I guess steering servos are like tail servos on helicopters something you do not want to go cheap on otherwise you will be paying for it in the end.

A cheap Futaba 3010 or something wouldn't be good enough at all I guess?
