JR 9000s for the steering and throttle of a buggy
JR 9000t for the steering of a truggy and then a 9000s for the throttle

Hands down the best servos IMO

For some reason the Airtronics speed specs do not line up with Ko, Futaba, Jr, or Hitec. Hopefully Hobbytown has one of these in stock. I'm pretty sure they keep the 9350 in stock.

I have this set-up in my 1/8 scale, the whine fron digi servo's
is ''elect noise'' as it try's to hold & look for the spot the transmiter
is sending it against the load. Don't want that noise at neutral.
It's using up batt and can't be great for the servo.
A very precise set up of the horn and smooth linkage will minimize it.
As my steering wears and loosens it will whine a little when on the starter box
{full extention on linkage=more load from linkage to servo than normal ride height}
I just blip the throtle or wiggle the wheel to center the
tires and linkage and it quiet.

Ace ds1015 (14.5kg @0.10sec),without doubt the best servo out there.Most 1/8th racers in the UK now use these servos instead of the usual Ko,sanwa,futaba etc.

Ace ds1015 for throttle and steering the only way to go.

Couple of questions:

1. Are JR Servos a straight plug in on Futaba receivers?

2. Would the Ace 1015 be a straight plug in to Futaba receivers?

3. Is 128ozin enought torque for buggy steering?
