Default 1/10th touring car servo: what's hot now?

Going to throw it to the RCtech hive mind. Currently running Futaba 9550 and 9551's in my touring cars.

I'm looking to change it up, wish list is:

As good or better specs as the Futabas
Reliable
Quiet
Low profile
Metal/titanium/adamintium/unobtainium gearing
Sexy good looks with an aluminium case
Modular servo wiring would be nice (is that even a thing?)

Thanks for any help

I love my futaba Bls571sv and I run it in sr mode with my 7px in my touring car. For my off road cars I run the new futaba cb700.

I donít know much about onroad, but Protek RC make servos with modular leads and a socket on the servo, could be a good place to start. Itís such a good feature.

I have switch from Hitec to ProTek.

However I wouldn’t be surprised that every good spec’d servo will be listed here.

If your running a sanwa transmitter then you should get the pgs-lh2. It's designed to work with ssr and is the top of the line.

I've always trusted Futaba. I now run the BLS551 and BLS571SV. They are smooth, fast, and reliable.

Wow, Itís crazy that the 571 is actually cheaper buying direct from Futaba USA. Other online sites seem to be asking $20 more. Been considering Futaba servos for the Serpent 750 I just purchased (since Iíll be getting a Futaba radio), but Iím also considering the Tekin T-180, if I can confirm that it is fuel proof. Iím definitely leaning toward it for my Serpent 4x Pro.

I specifically don't want a super fast servo for on road.... it makes your car twitchy especially coming from a high speed to a 90 or 180 degree corner. A lot of racers, even pro drivers dial down there steering servo speed to tame servos.

I race both on road 1/10 electric TC and 1/10 2wd buggy.
I have a super fast servo for my 2wd buggy (racing on a wet dirt track) and high torque servo for my 4wd TC (racing on asphalt)

I use Protek and Savox servos.
