Default Futaba S9550

Here is a very nice servo with great speed and torque as well as beign a low profile servo so you can get all your electronics low as possible.
Just my two pennies.

Might be quicker but Bigger = Heavier = more to move around the track = no matter how fast it is does it make up for the slower track times. Now we can have peein' contest but For the size nothing beats it.

Theres only around 10g difference between the two, and i can think of worse places for the extra weight to be. In some cars though its better i agree, 415 and others where space is fairly tight.
Im just a KO fanboy

I too am a big Ko Fan I love my Helios,
But I have a Yokomo SD and the space is tight, if I had a regular sized servo I would have to mount the receiver on the servo, I like to keep the CG as low as possible. I have tried a Airtronics 94357 and it is just too much, 80 oz of torque seems to give me all I need to get around. I just adjust setup for it.

You can get almost any high end servo you want for around 100.00 my vote goes for the KO2343.

To get a Futaba servo to fit you only have to clip off the little tip on the side. A pair of stips works great. I have used futaba in a airtronics, a hitec, and a Kopropo receiver and they all work with it.
So don;t let that be the desiding factor.
Also if you are new and have not ever raced before try a cheaper alternative like the Hitec 645 MG which I use to use until I found the Futaba. The 645 is about $40.00 at your LHS, and they seem to be the standard of regular weekend racers. I say save for a great battery or motor. The servos mentioned here are for regular racers who want the very best but all of us can tell you, "if you arent; going to race very often save your cash and get a reasonable servo".
Just my two pennies but it sounds like you have never raced a RC car before. If this is true there are many more important things to worry about.
Hope this helps,
Stephen <><
