Default Servos - for the On-Road Nitro cars...

So, for the past week I have been searching for any information regarding servos for any 1/10 on-road nitro car.

I am in need to purchase new servos soon, and I would like an opinion on the following.

For Throttle / Brake


Specifications:
Torque: 142 oz/in (@6.0V)
Speed: .17 sec/60° (@6.0V)
Dimensions (WxLxH): 1.55x0.73x1.46 in
Weight: 1.60oz
Bearing: Single
Motor Type: Cored
Gears: Metal


For Steering

* Transit time: 0.13 sec/deg @ 6V
* Torque: 12.5 kg/cm (173.6 oz/in) @ 6V
* Weight: 66g (2.328 oz)
* Length: 41.8mm
* Width: 20.6mm
* Height: 39.6mm

Info taken from www.amainhobbies.com

All in all it comes to $130 aprox. Would these servos be a right choice for parking lot racing, and maybe a few permanent track races?


Any other advise or choice regarding servos for any nitro on-road car?

I run that same throttle servo because you really don't need anymore torque and speed then what that servo puts out but for steering i use the jr9100s with 180oz of torque and .06 speed it is insanely fast which is perfect for racing and it makes it seem that the servo moves before before i turn the wheel

For the racing you're planning on doing, those will do you good and cheaper than your first set. I have a set of these in one of my older cars and haven't had a problem. The Futaba 9452s seem to be the standard servo in my area, and you can't go wrong with those
