I just want to add to what shookie said, At every OFFROAD national I have been to, almost every single car had JR in it. They would say that they had something else in there but if you actually looked....8450. When it first came out there was nothing else that could touch it. Now Im sure that there are others that are equal...but I thought it humours that unnamed pro drivers would run for Airtronics and have the JR servos in their car...and the tell you it was a 94357 on top of it LOL. And the reason most servos you see at the pro level in touring are Airtronics or KO is because most of the pro drivers are sponsored by those companies because of the Radios. Its just easier to get the servo from the same company. How many times have you seen guys turning their EPA down so much that the servo isnt really doing much anyway. Believe me...offroad puts way more stress on a servo and you have to be able to counter steer

I second the motion for the Futaba S9451. Good servo, very fast, good price, and it draws less current than the faster KO digital servos so's you won't have trouble using it with ESCs with weaker BEC circuits.

I just got a 9451 for my second car and it seems quite nice. However, if you want to spend the money, the KO 2123 is really amazing. It is slightly more trouble to install as it requires a 7.2v feed, either from an ESC that supports FET out, or directly from the battery. Either way, it eliminates the worry of a low BEC output voltage from the ESC as it gets its power directly from the battery. This ensures that it will really give you the full 0.06s speed. I have the KO in my primary car.

Compared to the $20 Airtronics servo that came with my TC4 RTR, the KO is blindingly fast. You can actually see the difference in speed just by looking at the wheels when you turn the steering on the remote.

Hi,

I'm looking for a new servo. I think it will be a KO, but which???
The features of the 2363 are useless without the ICS programmer. So the 2343 seems to be a good choice. Or the 2123 which is even faster and stronger. What do you think?

Cheers
Chris

If you feel like adding the fet feed (7.2v) to your ESC than the 2123 is the one for you...I have turned down my steering on some tracks due to the awesome amount of power the 2343 and 2363 has so I see no real need for the 2123 for on road.

And BOB you are right about the lies Pro's tell. Thats why there picture car is always so clean...Hehehehe. What ever works for there application. I don't run much off road so I am in the dark on that.. But for on road be assured there are a plethra of KO and Airtronics servos in those cars. I went with what works well and can handle the abuse I put them through.

Hi,

thank you. Do you know what's the difference between the 2343 and the 2363? I don't see it... what's difference between a FET servo and a "normal"? Handlingwise... Any difference?
The 2343 is a FET servo as well... but it's not faster and not stronger then the 2363...

Cheers
Chris

the 2343 and the 2363 are the same servo inside...difference is on the outside. The 2363 has a aluminum heatsink case to help keep your servo running longer.
the 2123 has to have a 7.2v wire attached to either yoru ESC or the battery to work.

I would recommend the DZ9000s JR servo. It has 128 oz of torque at 6.0 volts and speed of .06/60 at 6.0 volts. It fits in without modifications also.

XRC has an ad for the new JR Z9000s.....121oz @ .06 sec.....but, they said it's slightly larger than a standard servo.....

other than that, KO's have blinding speed....but I've HEARD (don't hold it against me) that they are along the fragile side.....But, I am a fan of Futaba servos.
