Default Fastest Truggy Servo (installed)?

Guys, I'm currently shopping for a steering servo, and I believe an Airtronics ERG-WRX (8.1kg/cm 0.06sec @ 6V) will definitely be slower than a Futaba BLS351 (208 oz/in 0.12sec @ 6V) due to the lack of initial torque. I'm talking about a situation where the installed servo on a truck is at standstill on the ground, turning left-right.

Just wondering, what servos do the pros run on their truggies? Other than Ace's 1015 of course (I could be wrong )

I have the Futaba 9351 in my 8ight-T (steering and throttle). Just going by model numbers, the BLS351 you're asking about is going to be similar, just brushless.

The 9351 makes my 8ight-T dance, lol. It's so very fast.

I see lots of 7955's used for truggy steering (I use one myself), plenty fast and good power.

+1 on the hitec 7955. I used a JR9100T last season and it wasn't bad but it wasn't great. So far I'm digging the 7955. My only bitch it that hitec uses its own highly specialized 2.3m screw for the servo horn and I cant seem to find one in a hex, Phillips only.

+ 2 on the 5955 or 7955 and +2 on the stupid screw size. Luckily I had an old MGT screw kit around which had some in it.
