If you go Hitec, don't use the 600 series. The three core motor seems to be failure prone as well. The rest of their servos have been great...

what do you guys think about this one?

Hitec 5625MG

It's a digital and it costs $55, but I only brake on the track when I enter the pits or to avoid hitting something.

Hey C888, That's a pretty decent servo. Maybe you could use that for steering and use your other one for throttle. Just a suggestion.

I used that on my RR and it worked pretty good. Not too twitchy either.

Also, make sure you use the rubber gromets to secure the throttle servo and set the end points so that it doesn't burn out again. It should last you way longer than the other one if it's set up right.

i'm confused like hell right now, my pockets got butterflies in them and I want to buy a digital servo. and put my JR steering MG servo that is 83-85 torque and .15 speed where the throttle is.

I did some research on this website and the majority of people went with Futaba servos, but they didn't mention anything about warrenty. While other people praised KO and Hitec warrenty, how quick it was and how they took care of them. I'm really confused.

I'm just suggesting that you use the Hitec you found for steering and your JR will be fine for throttle. You just need to set the end-points on the controller so you don't burn it out again.

Futaba's are great, but I though you had a buget. Just remember that you don't have to spend to much to be fast. This set up will get you back on the track.

right now I got like $50, but i can quit the hobby for a couple of weeks and save up enough money to buy a better servo.

Here are my top choices:

Hitec 5625MG

Futaba S9550

The hitec has more torque, less speed and weighs more.

The Futaba has less torque, more speed and weighs less.

I want your opinion guys, I did lots of research and the KO is way out of my price range for a good one.

I am on a budget, actually I just spent my last penny on college stuff, but the money I'm getting from selling my old radio set up should pay 75% of the Hitec servo

Dont go with a digital on throttle and like Scott Fisher said, dont go with the 600 series. I had a bad experience with a 605 mg on the throttle ,the car go WOT on a track board. Cars dont like board

Maybe you should get a servo like the JR Z590 (85 oz/.15 sec)
or a Futaba S3401 (44 oz/.15 sec)
Its more in your price range.

I already have the JR Z590 servo, but right now it's my steering. I will switch it to the throttle position and will put the hitec digital servo as my steering.

Hitec 525 MG or BB is perfect. Digital 5625 is too strong might mess up your carb mechanism. Same with the JR 4750. Don't need all that torque. Just need a decent High speed servo. Somewhere around .12-.15 and the torque at around 40-60 ounces. Personally I like the analog 525 Hitec servo for throttle/brake and the digital 5925 hitec servo for steering on my nitro sedan setups. Excellent performance at a very decent price.

$90 is too much for my blood for a steering servo.
