I like the Savox 1251, and it's variants. It can be a little power hungry and cause some issues with some Spektrum RXs.
Just wondering, let's say Spektrum S6070 basically same as the 1251?

SRG-BLS if you have a rx to suit if not, sdx-801.

check out the radiopost servos, the specs on them are outrageous. I'm
currently using the green and blue servos. I think the green servo is great for almost all applications.

my touring car holds its line in corner noticeable better now since I've replaced my savox 1251 with the green servo. I have full confidence in my steering hardware with my radiopost servos

Sure SRG-BLS if you use sanwa radio. Feel much better than futaba BLS and savox.

so, what's the advantage of using one of this low profile servos versus the standard ones?
Aren't most servos mounted sideways anyway?

It's all about managing real estate. Especially on ultra narrow chassis that mount N/S or having enough space for all the other electronics on chassis that mount E/W.

Low-profile servos are lighter, too. If you don't need weight where the servo is, it can give you something like 7-15g extra to play with compared to the equivalent full-size model.

Half of choosing a servo is how much do you want to spend? Alot of people love Savox and Futaba and they are between $65-75. You can get a cheap one for $25 or something expensive up to $125.

I run both the S9551 and the older S9550. Both are flawless from my experience. I've had the 9550 in a multitude of different vehicles including a Lazer ZX-5 in which it was outstanding as well.

I cannot justify over $100 for a servo but Like everything, Good, fast, cheap. choose 2!

I have always tried to stick to the same brand servo as radio i am using thinking the compatibility of them will be better. Kinda like LRP motors and speedies. The X12 does not play nice with some speedies. . I use a sdx801 and m11x which is a great combo. I am not sure if it's the radio that helps make this combo so good but I'm very happy with it. FWIW This is the servo Marc R used to win the last 2 touring car worlds! And with a lot of the top euro drivers using Sanwa they gotta have something going for them!

All those sponsors you have. And years you've been racing. And now your asking this. Always go with race proven stuff. Most of these guys don't realize at big races how important everything on your ride needs to be perfect to go fast. No one runs savox. Ever since Surikarn won the worlds with Tamiya in 2002 with a futaba 9550. Futaba became the bench standard. It may not be the fastest servo, but most of us turn down our steering response with high speed servos because they make the car to twitchy. Futaba all the way. But, if your sold on speed go with KO.
