wells i've said it once and i've said it again, i use std. servos and in my eyes they are just as good in getting the job done

not to say any of you are wrong or anything like that

i just feel why spend so much money on a thing that doesnt make your driving better, doesn't make your car run better, and cost the same amount as a set of new tires

but i probly will end up using the new JR servo in my off-road truck

This is not your JR number but I can personally recommend the KO2143 digital fet for the steering servo, I own about ten of them and some of them have suffered some phenominal hits on the front end of 1/8th scales and all of them have survived with no damage. They are allover 3 years old and one saw a hit hard enough to snap a lunsford titanium turnbuckle along with ripping the whole side off the front of an 1/8th scale with no gear damage whatsoever. However you should use a non digital servo on the throttle and brake as most of the digitals are prone to burnout or suck excessive juice under braking. A buddy of mine burned out a hoard of JR digitals on the throttle side. The KO's don't burn out on the like others do but they do eat alot of power.
unfortunatly the KO's run about 88 dollars.
my 2 cents

Would like to add that for analog servo for throttle / brake, the KO 2174 is nice.

The usual combo for analog servos on gas cars is KO 2173 for steering (fast .08 seconds and strong enough at 8 kg) and KO 2174 (slower at .13 seconds but stronger at 12 kg).

I would agree that the 2173 is plenty strong for throttle / brake though. I use them also on the 710 coupled with a Futaba S9450 on the steering.

Ok,
Since i'll just be buying one for the time being and using a stock for the other spot which is more important, steering or throttle?

And for steering is the order from best to worst:????
1. digital coreless
2. digital
3 analog coreless
4. analog

Seems i've been checking out everyones suggestions, and basically opinions are all over the board. Although it's been very educational so far, it hasn't let me to a decision.

Thanks
Joe

steering is the most important
digital coreless
buy a digital fet KO 2173 , if its to fast you can always slow it down with the transmitter exponential. I always buy the fastest I can get you can slow them down but you cant speed them up.

D the 2173 is a digital coreless right, Unless I'm missing something here?? Am I having a CRS Moment?

I tried to use a 2174 for steering on my Impact once but it was just to slow for that. I had to really lead the steering prior to the turn to compensate, and tended to over steer the corner waiting on the servo to respond. It sucked. It makes a good Throttle brake servo yess.

No they are analogues.

The 2143 are digitals and you also have the new ones they put out which I think are programable.
