Sanwa WRX Digital Servo Vs KO 2143

How does the servo rack up against the KO 2143? Is it worth it? The reason being is that I am racing on Friday and Hong Kong doesn't have any. Should I wait for stock of the KO or the Sanwa is a better buy (the Sanwa is $5 US dearer).

I am running on-road with a MTX-3

Here are the specs (Which will be better at centering?):

Sanwa: Speed : 0.06 sec /60 deg. (6.0V)
Torque : 8.1kg.cm (6.0V)

KO 2143: Speed / 0.08s / 60 deg(6.0V).,
Torque /8.0 kg-cm

The KO 2143 is renowned for it's speed and reliability. The Sanwa is also good but I'll take the KO anytime. I believe most will agree on this.

Though the Sanwa's spec is impressive, I would still go for the KO PDS-2143. That's what I have on my MTX-3, and it's worked like charm for months already.

Go for the KO, most racers on my track has that. Though the specs are similar you will not go wrong for those 2 brands. I used sanwa in my NTC3 and its perfectly fine.

KO. I've had Airtronics(Sanwa) before but they never held up as good as my KO servos. I'm not saying they didn't last, just that KO's are smoother and more durable.
