Default Fast or strong steering servo.

Savox Servo SC-1267SG Coreless 7.4V std.size 0.095 speed/21kg. s
Savox Servo SC-1268SG Coreless 7.4V std.size 0.11 speed/26kg. st

Hi.

Had a little talk with my best RC friend about servos. At the moment we both run Savox 1268 and 1267.

Well, he has the faster 1267 for throttle and the stronger but little slower 1268 for steering... I'm running mine in the opposite way...

"Nearly all drivers uses the strongest servo for steering and the the fastest for throttle/braking" he said...

I replayed "I really like the fastest possible steering I can get and wants a ton of power for the brakes".


How do you guys use your servos?

I prefer it like your friend.. - more power on steering, more speed on throttle..

I agree but these servos are close in specs, they could do either task well. I'd say try a 0.06sec on throttle like an 2271sg if you're a savox fan

I like to be sub .10 on the steering speed. As long as its strong enough for the job and less than .10....im happy.

Right now I am loving the Futaba 9352 servos in my buggy.

Why not both. Like rc_user stated, the sb-2271sg savox has both speed and torque.
Speed(@7.4V sec/60): .065
Torque(@7.4V oz-in): 277.0
Then use your radio to adjust speed if you want something else.

Ty Tessmann runs the 2274 in both steering and throttle/brake in his buggy. He also runs it in his 2wd and 4wd buggies. I decided to replicate this setup because I have an extra 2274 in my parts box and can replace any one of these four servos if need be.

Don't get too hung up in the speed stats. a lot of it is splitting hairs.

2271 steering and 1267 for throttle for me. I only run the 1267 on throttle because the 2271 is taller and is a little too close to hitting the chassis on my buggy. I run the same in truggy just so they have the same feel and I can swap out parts if I need to.

I always found that anything under a .12 was a waste for me. It usually hurt me because it was too fast. I have a .13 in my car now and it moves as fast as my hand does, so I'm happy with it. I ran a Savox 1283 on steering and Spektrum 6040 on throttle last season and I never felt like I was being hurt by servo performance.

I have two Savox 1256's sitting here new. the 1283 is now in my Ebuggy so I think I'll just use both 1256's for the nitro car this year. I also have a BLS451 that I plan to keep around for back up throttle servo.

The 1283 is .13/416.6 oz-in @6v
The 1256 is .15/277 oz-in @6v
The 6040 is .08/167 oz-in @6v
The BLS451 is .10/146 oz-in @6v

I use to use strong 400+ oz. now I am trying fast. The nice thing about fast is you can always slow them down, you can't make a slow servo fast.

He must not go out and buy, he has them both already.
It's me he's talking about having 1268TG as steering. Personally, I refuse to believe that anyone can notice the small difference there is between the 2 servos in speed 0.015sec . and therefore I always choose the strongest as steering servo.

How do you guys use your servos?
If manufacturer claims are true then minimum 6kg in both and I don't feel that it lacks anywhere. I've settled on .13s and 8kg for T/B and .12s and 11kg.
Reasons:
-more than enough;
-I felt the quality and price was right;
-I have them for years without issues;
-they are efficient.

AS Frank L said, overkill is reliability: no performance advantage in buying a 20kg servo for brake when you use as much as 5kg to lock the wheels. Speed on the other hand is the most important, but it should be speed at half maximum load, imagine a .06s servo that when is under 1kg of load is barely reaching .2s.

I say why not both?

For my mbx7t I'm going to run both of my green Radioposts for throttle and steering. They're .08sec & 249 oz/in @ 6 volts.

I like it like the onroad guys. Fast for steering, strong on throttle mainly for brakes.
