Default Purchased new JR radio and....

I need to know if anyone knows model steering servo I should be looking for. If not, what are the numbers for speed and torque I need to have?

Thanks.

For a nitro touring car?

I am assuming yes, so I will say I have a Futaba S9402 as my steering servo. It is perfect, if anything, too much.

.10 sec @ 6v
110 oz of torque (or something like that)

As a minimum, I would probably say .13 sec/60 oz for throttle and .13sec/70oz for steering. Others will differ in what they say, but my main piece of advice is do not cheap out on your servos! Cheap stuff performs cheaply. I won't name brands, but you should know what is cheap, and what is not.

hehe, I haven't been out of R/C that long to forget what brands aren't worth the money spent. I also know, because it is my motto as well...buy the good stuff once and have it last awhile or like you said...by crap and get crap.

Thanks for the info.

For me, its...

by crap, send in crap to get fixed so its doesn't crap out again...


For one manufacturer, I sent in 4 servos and a reciever all at one time (the receiver problem was my fault though, ran it when the antennae tube came out; the wire turned to shreds).
