You can still use your jr 590 for steering. It's still good for steering. The Hitec 525 is around 45 to 40 bucks at most hobby shops. Excellent for slide carb motors.

Everything has a price tag, you dont pay $90 for nothing! My KO digital servo still working perfectly from the early MTX2 year! and I had KO PDS1001Fet servo which lasted me 12years and they were still working(just sick and tired of 7.2v and fet wire that's all).

like I said before, if you are on a budget, I would still save up for digital steering servo, analog on throttle.

No matter what servo you use on throttle, you have to set your EPA correctly, otherwise any servo will kill your carb!

The best throttle servo is the Aittronics 94737 and in my opinion the only good servo Airtronics has ever made. This was the first servo I ever bought and it has been through 8 cars in 3 years. Worth every damn penny.

If you want to save up for the 5925 and move your JR to throttle that would be fine. If not, get the 525 for throttle and leave the JR on the steering. Nobody is really giving a lot of conflicting advice. Most of us have taken the parameters you gave us ($50 limit) and we have pretty much agreed on your best course of action. You just have to decide if you want to wait a short while and get a digital for steering or just get the new throttle servo now...

It's not supposed to be this hard.

Very true about the endpoints but why put a 130 ounce plus torque servo on a slide carb motor? Overkill I'd say and mechanically dangerous. Anyways very true about endpoints.

Mr Fish... trying to buy my engine.

The extra torque on the servo isn't to operate the carb, it is for the brakes. I am sure that it doesn't take tons of torque, but remember you are trying to haul a car (don't know what it weighs, a few lbs at least) down from 60mph. It does take some torque....

hence, metal gear is better than the plastic one for this purpose?
