Default Best steering servo for TC

I have an FK05 with a Hi-Tech 645 in it. The servo works fine I just think that it is a little slow while in the S turns when swithching directions. I have all ready exhaust the options with my M8 as far as the Dual rate and Expo adjustments. What servo's do you guys use or most of the top level pro's?

Airtronics 94357 if you want analog and if digital, try the Futaba 9451 or 9550.

I've tried servo's with speeds of .22, .16, .12 and my current Hi-Tec HS-5925MG's [email protected] and I've been able to tell the difference in response. Its been a few months since I surveyed the latest servo's. But back then I was hard pressed to find any servo's that were worth the price of upgrading from what I have already.

I'm sure there are comparable servo's from other brands. This was the best I could find available locally last fall though. Other than its propensity to be noisy and distract corner workers, its worked great for me.

If anyone knows of a servo that is just as fast, has at least [email protected] torque, is the same size or smaller than 1.6"x 0.8"x1.5" and weighs no more than 50g/1.76oz then please let me know.

I've thought about getting the 9550 for its reduced size and weight, but I wasn't sure if I'd be able to tell the difference in going from 128oz to 83oz of torque in high grip foam/carpet racing. I'm pretty hard on the front drivetrain/steering/tires with my one-way setup as it is.

I like the newer KO's and Airtronics ones.
The 2343or the 2363 which is the 2343 with a heat sink.
or the 94357 or the 94360 which is the 57 with a heatsink are both the best I have ever used, they have durability and ultra smooth running.
I have a Futaba 9550 which is also great for a little less money and you get the nicity of it being a low profile servo, my only problem was the first plastic gear would break if you were not carefull.
Now for the other servos mentioned I would say look at the results of the last few on road championship races...I.E. IIC or RROC or Snowbirds. Look at what the pro's use. They almost always run the KO or Airtronics. Very few run anything else mostly do to reliability. I have seen a few Futaba and JR but the majority run the big two.

I have a 94157 in my car now and a JR z8450 digital that is supposed to actually be in there. Honestly my 94157 is performing flawlessly so im not going to change it for now.
