Default Noob help What's a good value/performance steering servo for TMG4 In the 45-65 range

Guys I am new to RC cars I fly heli's I had a race around the track and Brooklands my local club recently (more of a poodle round the track really) and I striped my steering servo after a extremly minor clip with the barrier.

I want to replace it with something half decent around the 45-65 price range or $90-130 thats less likely to break in a minor ding. Whats your recomendations thanks guys.

I don't know prices in the UK but in the US you can get just about top of the line steering servo for $90-$130. Either KO 2343 or 2363 would be great.

Use the Futaba 9550. The lower profile gives a little extra room.

Thank for your help guys this is the best forum I seem to have come across for touring cars. One last question can you tell me what sort of torque requirement I need for a steering servo.

There were two others I was think about aslo the new high speed titanium geaed Hitec servo...

The "HSC-5996TG"

http://www.hitecrcd.com/product_fs.htm

Or the Multiplex "Multiplex Profi Speed Digi"

You are probably going to get lots of opinions on this one. I would say you don't NEED more than 70oz. Remember more doesnt hurt. I usually go for speedy servos. I want things to move as my hands move. A digital is not a bad choice for steering either. Do remember that a digital does draw more electricity. I cannot comment on the new Hitecs. I have never had problems with Hitecs when used for steering. That being said, I normally run Airtronics analog servos.

Are you sure you want those ?, G4 is limited with the space in the car , it might take you some hardwork to fit those servo in , also you have to consider the place to put those wire nice and clean. I have alot of trouble with that until i get my S9550 and also they DO NOT come with appropriate servo horn for hitec i think
