Strange, my 9451 are easier to move than any of my Airtronics servos when powered down.


Anyway, if you want an airtronics servo, go with the 94357 for electric touring car. Been using them for a long time and they are great. I am switching to Futaba 9451's, but for an electric touring car, I would go with the earlier choice of 9550

oh by the way the JR z590m goes for $30 Street price
i have a 590 in my sedan right now...(my backup servo)

u can tell a difference in speed from this to the fast, fast ones that are .08 and less in transit time...it is rather noticeable

hummm, maybe I'll take mine apart and see what's up. They are still just as fast, but difficult to move, unlike my JR 9000s

I use the 94758 in 4 of my touring cars awesome servo. Coreless and digital .06 speed and strong perfect torque for touring cars. Sanwa (also airtronics) has one called an ERG WRX its the same as the U.S airtronics 94758 just different name. My bro uses this and its all good.

I also use the digital airtronics 94758 servo in my only car which happens to be a xray t1 fk04. Its really fast for my touring car. Perfect for me.

I like to use Futaba S9550 for electric sedan because of the small size and it delivers enough speed.

What is the best to look for in a servo for touring?. Hi torque, hi speed or both? And either coreless or digital? and if on a budget what is the best to get. Any help will be appreciated

I've used the same JR 8450 digital servo in my touring cars for about 4-5 years now with no servo saver and it is still holding up just fine and still competitive in my mind.

i tend to look for high speed....most top of the line servos with high speed have enough torque ( 120+ torque)

Please check your servo saver, steering linkage, front universals, bearings before you blame the servo.

Airtronics make some great digital and non digital servos. I don't know the series / model number. My tips buy Digital Servo with metal gears, 8kg of torque, and speed 0.08 sec / 60 degree.

That's a good servo for stock. I've ran them. Extremely inexpensive for the budget racer. However, once you move up in stock, to 19T or mod, there's a point where 3003's become too slow and lack the torque to be consistent through tight slaloms and switchbacks on carpet.
