get yourself a good KO or Airtronics, or even Futaba. don't ruin your expensive car with a cheap servo

even if you can't buy the Futaba 9451 or something like that (you know, $80+ each), I'd at least go with something from the more reputable brands.

i already have a 9451 in each of my cars for steering

what is a good futaba servo for throttle?

something a little less cheaper than the 9451

are coreless servos any good? i would like something that doesnt drain too much battery voltage to for longer mains.

the futaba 9405 looks good but im not sure wat the corless is all about?

The Futaba 3305 would work fine and it's only about $30.

I'm not sure what Coreless is all about tbh.

I don't think you need anything super duper fast personally. The normal perceivable delay time is .20seconds or so. So if your servo moves that fast your brain can't pickup on the delay. Although faster will offer superior performance generally speaking, it's not necessary to spend that much IMO.

That's just me though.
