150oz minimum throttle, 200oz minimum steering and no slower than .15 seconds for racing. a huge part in the decision also should be the warranty, if one goes out how long before it is replaced? then there's budget. i've had very good luck with hk servos, when i did warranty them it took about a month. not a big deal since the lower cost allows for spares.

It's not about strong/weak, usually higher performance are available in two versions high torque (steering) and high speed (throttle/brake). You notice the speed more in the throttle position going from throttle to brake and back. It just doesn't require as much torque to operate the brakes throttle so most choose the faster servo for this position.

As for torque minimums, 140oz on steering is enough (I use a BLS451 to steer my E-buggy, 147oz and it's plenty), 120oz on throttle (it's more than you need but if the brakes get fouled with fuel you'll want to be able to turn them up).

Savox seem popular now but I think it's because they are cheap. Apparently there are issues with them being power hungry and causing radio glitches because of it.

In mind and body, we're all heading towards old age. It is slower to go by bike.

Here's the:

more speed on throttle

and by more I mean as much as you can afford.

My Opinion is Torque should be no less then 200 oz. on steering and about the same on throttle..

That sad I run 7955's on both unregulated..
