We've run several of the ser vos mentioned.. the KO, the Savox, the Sanwa, and all three Futabas. While I can't really say anything bad about the KO and Savox servos, we kept going back to and finally stuck with the Futabas - they just felt the best on track. The Sanwa SRG was very similar to the Futaba, but imho not worth the higher price. I run the BLS551 in my TC's, the Mrs. runs the 9551's... same lap times with both, both great.

Thanks for your reply guys, I hadn't noticed these kind of servos being used in cars before. I've heard the airplane guys use them; probably originated there.

after all has been said, i ordered a Spektrum S6070. people may as why -- because i currently run a Spektrum S6040 (along w/ 3520 receiver and dx3r pro). if its holding me back (or failing... not centering/etc) i think i'll get the Futaba 9551.

I'm sure the S6070 has the same guts as a savox 1251. Identical specs. The S6070 will look better in your red car though.

I like orange

They certainly have many similarities in design. As do many other cars.

The Photon is a very capable car. I had 2 of them. I'm sure the new EX will be just as capable, but I'm happy with my current cars. One just needs some of your Nikita out-drives to complete it.

I use a Futaba 4PKS and a Futaba 9551 servo. If I had a Sanwa radio I'd use a Sanwa servo, and so on. I've found using the same brand servo as the radio gives a more linear feel, car doesn't feel nervous.

I was using a Savox low profile one but it's center point wasn't the same everytime , even though it was new

Didn't want to spend 200 -300 dollars for the Sanwa SHR servos , so i bought the Sanwa SDX801 , quick and it centres perfectly every time

just my finding's guys
