I use KO PDS-2143FET for Steering and KO PS-2174FET for Throttle on all my MTX-3's.

Why KO? Well, simply that I do get great technical support from them.

I live in the West Palm area and right now we are "parking lot" racing at 2 locations nearby. After I get the 710 finished I will travel down to Ft. Lauderdale to race.

Would running 2 digital servos be recommended? What would that do to my battery pack?

Jag,

Personally use the KO PDS-2344 for both steering and throttle.

KO Propo because of performance and Customer Support. It's
been nothing short of fast and reliable.

Futaba S9550 on both throttle and steering. Why? Lightweight and can with no problem turn the wheels and pull the braking lever
Speed is not that important, i have the throttle speed set on 75% and the steering on 60% to get it less twitchy

Is 200 oz. of torque really needed for the steering servo? I use 188 oz. in my MT. Are you guys that are using the super fast digital servos slowing them down or running them at 100%?

I often slow'em down in Nitro cars.
The reason i buy hyperexpensive servos is that low-budget servos in about 9 cases of 10 damages in only a couple of hours of driving, I've had one of my Futaba 9450's in more than 2 years and it works flawlessly in my Elec car even now
