Can someone shed more light on BB, BRUSHLESS AND CORE-LESS servos. What's the difference between them?

Coreless and brushless are motor types. Brushless is more modern tech.

BB normally refers to ball bearing AFAIK

I've had the same two savox 1267 servos in my truggy for a couple years and I'm at the track every weekend. I run them on lipo in my truggy and on life in my onroad nitro. Perfect servos for a descent price..

I had a low profile savox in my GT12,it was ok,I replaced it with the core 12th servo and the difference was amazing,much smoother and felt more connected to my handset,maybe more down to it having more teeth idont know,
I been running a full sized savox in my TC and had no problems at all,iv put the new low profile core in my wet car but not had chance to run it yet,but it doesn't feel as good as the savox,iv spent silly money on servo's for my 1/8th nitro and they have gone pop so not as keen anymore,I think maybe what ever you run you will get used to.

My baby started to bash the keyboard and left a post as I was reading the thread. I was asking for my post to be deleted by admin.
Thanks for your condescension.

Take a look at Xpert servos. All brushless, great prices, great specs. Marc Rheinard just switched to them.

I just received a Futaba S9551. It's so much more quieter than my savox 1251mg. I also like how it comes with a shorter wire (18cm), easier to fit in your touring car where your servo is next to your receiver.

The savox is a good quality servo for a decent price of $65. It's reliable and fast. Unless the savox is really stretching your budget, get the Futaba S9551. Its only $20-$25 extra but its way more quieter and feels better quality.

Rheinard will race anything if you pay him enough. Sanwa should drop him. He's not going to win anything big anymore!

There's always new brands pushing onto the market but a lot of it is Chinese made crap sugar coated. Yeah Savox are not bad but there not great either. Japanese electronics are were its at. I have 5 and 6 yr old Futaba and Sanwa servos that are still great. I run a futaba bls551 in my tourer but I want a KO RSX oneten next.

Depending on what prices you pay, I would say there isn't a great deal of difference between the two. I have used both long term, but where I am, the price difference does not justify paying for the KO and in practice, I can not tell the difference. And it's normal. I have the fast KO (speed) but what you really want is the torque. And if you look at the data, the speed is then the same as the BLS. So there you go.
