Default Smallest servo for 1/12

Hi.
Looking for the smallest servo possible that still is good for high level racing. What servos can fit in a reversed position in between the front wheels?
I don't mind cutting of tabs. Is there an airtronics version of the Sanwa Srg-hr?

Alex

I have a KO 951 between my front suspension, but I am running a Speedmerchant Rev 7 with the old skool front end. I had to cut the tabs off.

Wow. That's a heckuva servo. 66 oz of pull and 0.12 sec at 6v. And tiny.

Thanks to Peter Robinson for this one. The Sanwa version has even better specs , along with a higher price tag + shipping from overseas

The specs on the Sanwa/Airotronics are very impressive. (I believe they're both built by the same company) Correct me if I'm wrong.

I still like the JR Z3650, but I believe its slightly heavier than both, a little less torque, and a little slower.

correct, except the jr is a bit faster than the Airtonics at least.

The Airtronics servo seems interesting. Going to design my own inline chassis for my xray X12. Just got my hands on a Tekin rs pro speedo. Smallest there is

Run on lowgrip carpet so one chassis will be only 2mm thick and the other 2.5mm. Going to do some experimentation.

I think the footprint is smaller with Tekin.
