The Savox, more torque for breaking. In my opinion.

Spektrum has more speed and still has reasonable torque. Savox does have more though. Personal preference, I would try out both and see which one you like better

It's not all about the speed of the servo. I don't know the specs to the servos you're using but i would get something something .10-.13. Look at the pros servos and specs. You'll see the speed is not the fastest.

Spektrum 6920
Specifications:
Size Category: Standard
  • Type: Digital
  • Application: 1/8 Off-Road
  • Torque:
    • 238 oz-in (17.1kg-cm) @ 6V
    • 292 oz-in (21.0kg-cm) @ 7.4V
    • 331 oz-in (23.8kg-cm) @ 8.4V
  • Speed:
    • 0.09 sec/60 deg @ 6.0V
    • 0.08 sec/60 deg @ 7.4V
    • 0.07 sec/60 deg @ 8.4V
  • Current Draw Idle: 10.2mA @ 6.0V
  • Current Draw Stall: 4900mA @ 6.0V


Savox SB-2274SG
  • Speed:
    • @7.4V: .08 sec/60
    • @6.0V: .105 sec/60
  • Torque:
    • @7.4V: 347.2 oz-in
    • @6.0V: 277.7 oz-in


I would still go with the Savox, more torque and the speed is null for this type of situation.

For the 8.4v on the Spektrum how can you get that for a nitro? Is it possible?

He does not have the servo you mentioned. He has the Spektrum 6920 AND/OR Savox SB-2274SG
Why add another servo in the mix is confusing. Also saying something like this without a description as to why makes it even worse.

Wish these servos were no so expensive but the Hitec 9370/9380 has been in my sons car since dnc 2017. Although worth it, too much money for 2 servos
