Default Whats A Good Servo?

Ok this is what iam going to be running soon:
1) a Yoke M4-4TC SD SSG, almost fully hopped up
2) A novak burshless SS5800
3) Airtronics MX-3S

I want a good servo, sumthing that will hold up. Qualities iam looking for:
1) Steel geared, and what not
2) High speed/high torque
3) i dunno if i can use digital ones with my radio, if so then id prefer a digital one
4) resonably priced

Any suggestions?

JR 8417 will do the trick, best servo I've ever owned IMO.

If it is quality....than none better than the 2363 from KO...then for a little less money and Bling get the 2343 same inner parts just doesn' have the heatsink...

I have tried many servos and I have found none that are perfect day in and day out....
The Airtronics 93457 is another great choice...for the bling get the 93460. These are the only servos I will use EVEN or until they make a better one...

oh yea these are my opinions......

Well i found one, a decent one i think. The S9404. Its looks to be a little used and a bit dirty. Is there anyway i can "re-vamp" it up other then just cleaning it?

Best servo IMHO is the JR 8700G. Im using it now in my main touring car, but considering buying another two of them..

Its actually a Heli tail rotor servo, it has 2 ball bearings, metal geared, 3.5kg torque, and 60degree transit time of [email protected] Not only is it strong and fast, but its super super smooth and has very little resistance when the servo isnt on.

They're not cheap, but any other servo i've had is crap by comparison.
