IMHO, the RSX is the best hand down.

I got the opportunity to compare 2413 and Orion and the KO was way more precise but the RSX was even better by far.

Not cheap but worth it.

Best to me is proven time after time. Name a low profile with a track record better than futabas across our country in the last 10 years. All of mine still track straight and smooth after 6 years. Can you say this about any of your servos, just curious?

Just because someone won with equipment "x" doesn't mean it's the best, but Savox was getting knocked and there were statements like no one would use them for top level comp. Well Meen did and did very well with it.

For just over $60, Savox have incredible specs. Futaba an KO on the other hand have less than impressive specs for the price. I'm sure they are perfectly fine servos, but on paper they just don't have great numbers for the price. People win with them all the time. Doesn't really mean anything though.

I have a savox1251 in both of my touring cars. I've had no issues with them whatsoever and I'm sure I'll continue to use them for a long time.

"Best" is not something that can be easily answered. Everyone has a different opinion. Often not based on facts.

There will always be people that think something is the best while others think that same thing is crap. In the end, just use what you like.

Futaba 9551 smooth and not as power hungry as the savox

Assuming you could mount a mini servo in a touring car, you think you could get away with something like the BLS651?

76 oz-in torque seems like plenty and it's 19g lighter than the 9551.

You COULD get away with a mini servo, but I wouldn't recommend it. The smaller servo wouldn't have the holding power to keep the car pointed where you'd like during high speed/high load cornering.

The Savox seem to have a lot of detractors of late, which is weird in the face of no one really saying they are the greatest, just they seem to be rubbing the established racers the wrong way, proving you don't 'need' to spend 3 times the money to get a good servo.

Oh gee my servo was working since the stone age?, well good for you dude, the Savox have been round a couple of years and doing well so far.
Fast, cheap, good, pick two?, no thanks dude I'll buy the Savox and have all three.

Seriously, both my models are running Savox LPs, both are great with them.

I have Futaba 9551, Savox 1251 and Futaba BLS551, the first and two are very similar, but the third is much better, more precise and direct, with Futaba 4PKs and FAAST C2 BLS system, have very little latency

With Savox 1251 is not possible use the FASST C2 BLS system

I would use the KO Propo low profile servo part nr PDS-2413 ICS
it's probably one of the best out on the market
Everybody is running that here in Switzerland in there Awesomatix A700.
