Easy question to answer... In that price range

Futaba S9452 or S9551. Try Tower, with qty pricing (on the 9452) and coupons you get a good price. The real differences are minor. The 9551 is a touch slower and is smaller and lighter. Compare the specs and decide for yourself.

Yes, I agree, Futaba S9452 or S9551, I like the digital on my throttle and analog on my steering, why you ask... the Analog is more forgiving , if your radio has not been recalibrated lately (I send it once a year), and Digital on my throttle, because I put the hair rubber bands (from Walgreens) (black in color) so if I lose signal, it shuts down the throttle... Just a personal thing...

See the link for bands from Walgreens... I run two of them... http://www.walgreens.com/store/produ...id=prod363979#

Hope this helps...

Id pick one up used futaba...they rarely fail or get worn , especially in a touring car. Theres lots out there too. But hay sometimes the extra dollar is worth it for less headache..

The best steering servo I think is the Airtronics 94359. Never had a problem or glitch. I run that servo on all my on roads 5 of them. 94358z in my off road. Excellent servos about $80. each.

Airtronics, Futaba, and JR all make great steering servos. Can't go wrong with any of these.
