Default Digital vs Analog servo

I have been trying to decide which one to use for my 415.
I currently have a KO Propo 2373 (111 oz .09 sec) and a JR Z8450 (98 oz .08 sec). As you can see the difference in transit time is not that huge, but I was told digital servo is better that analog.

What are your thoughts. I have used the KO2373 on my 415 and I dont have issues with it, but am I better swapping out to the JR digital servo?

By the way I am using this on a KO301F receiver that came with my Mars R radio.

I have been using the JR 8450's for the last year now. I've been buying used ones for cheap and getting some great deals, since they are not the newest version. I was using analog servos before and noticed that they didn't have the accuracy of the JR. Now my analogs are all in my 8th scale, since the precision doesn't seem to matter as much.

Both servos would be good, but try the digital. If you don't like it switch back.

I went from an Airtronics 94360 to the Futaba S9550. The car "seemed" to track straighter and was definitely smoother to drive. Could have been the slower speed (.07 vs .11) but just my observation.

just a slight correction. 2173 is the analog 6V FET servo. no such thing as the 2373 if you want a ko propo digital servo try the 2365. its the heatsink ICS model. more info here: http://www.kopropo.com/servos.htm
