Default Which airtronics servo for steering.

Hi guys, I am looking to get a new servo for my TC4 and I am interested in the Airtronics ones. I wasn't sure which one would be best for steering. What would be best out of the 94357, 94358, and 94359 and why? Am I forgetting one?

Anyone have any recommendations? I did a search but didn't see too many posts on the Air servos. Mostly Futaba and HiTec.

I use a 94360, it's stupid fast and works great. The 94357 is identical in specs to the 94360, except that the 94360 has a cool blue heat sink case. The 94357 would be less money for the maximum performance, I would pick it.

The 94358 and 94359 are torque servos for 8th scale buggy or MT steering (they are indentical in specs except the 94359 has a heat sink).

i agree with ddosros2. i have use the 357 for years, they are great. i use the 358 for steering in my 1/8th buggy, for the throtle i use 357. most of the guyes in my club use 357 and swaer by it.

i keep an old 257 around for back, i have not needed it yet.

if you can find an old 257 it will have about the same specs.

I use the 94357 I have great luck with it they center great and there stupid fast. I don't really see the need to put a 94360 in the touring car. There is really no need. Not to mention the heat sink causes extra weight.

kt racing: there is no need for a 94360 in a touring car, but I got mine for free and my X-Ray T1 is light as is, so it helps get my car up to the required weight.

In the end the 94357 is the best choice for a TC (or a any 10th scale electric car/buggy/truck).

Good luck.

COOL....thanks for all the great advice guys! Looks like I will go with the 94357 since it is basically a unanimous decision.
