Default Touring Car Servo

Guys - I'm looking to purchase a high-speed touring car servo that consistently keeps straight. In the past, I had troubles with servos that seemed to change from race to race too much.

Any suggestions, mostly interested in Airtronics.

Thx

i use 357's in all 3 of my TC's, great analog servo, so far no problem with centering, good speed and durability...

the 758 digital looks real good too, although i have no experience with it

I use the 358 and it works great as well. Never had any problems with it. I had hi-tec before these and they never seemed to go straight.

I have heard of alot of problems with the Airtronics lately. Not to sure as I don't use they're servos.


I use the Hitec 5925's with great luck. Make sure your EPA is set right and you shouldn't have any problems. That goes with any servo.

Although I have recently moved to JR servos I was very happy with 94357 I ran for a couple years trouble free. The new 360 should be more than enough .

I'm running the Futaba S9550 digital so far and very happy with it. It's also shallow depth which helps alot with the limited space on some chassis's like my TC4.

The JR 9000s works great. And it's as smooth and fast as servos come.

I have used the same two JR servos for a few years with NO problems. Very smooth and very fast. Mine are 8450's but I'm sure it's not the most current model. But before that I used 4735's for years, no failures.

Although I wouldn't recommend it, I run mine with no servo saver, and have never busted one.

You better knock on wood. I also run w/o a saver, but I've only had my JR for a month, so I can't comment on durability.

I really like the KO 2123. It is very fast and because it uses a separate 7.2v line, you don't have to worry about your BEC voltage being low and slowing down the servo. This KO is lightning fast and quite strong. In my use it has always centered well and I've never had the settings wander.

I also like the Futaba 9451. I have this in my backup TC and it too is strong and fast.

9450 and 9451 are both great servos, although they are loud and stiff to move when powered down, I've never been let down and I ran a 9450 for an entire season w/o a problem.

is there a difference in servos that cost an arm and a leg? I personaly only had JR z590m's in all my rides less my new L3 and micro but both TC and Buggy seem to be fine for centering and such as for speed I actaully set my steering arc to - 25% or more... so what's the big difference in spending the extra $$$?

oh by the way the JR z590m goes for $30 Street price
