Default Servo options

Building a new b6.1d 2wd buggy and was wondering what's a good servo?

I was looking at a Reedy RT1408, but it looks like they are discontinued ?

What do you guys recommend?

Protek or Reedy are great servos. pick one with a speed you want.

Check the mounts first. I have a B6D and a low profile servo isn't ideal for the servo mount, it crushes the cable on one side. I am using it for now as thats all I have but will be changing to a standard size servo asap. I assume the B6D and B6.1D mounts are the same, but could be wrong.

My low profile fits perfectly in my B6.1 and yes same mounts as B6D,B5M is different. I am running the LP10HV-SR from a new company Pro PerformanceRC and it is insanely awesome with my M17. They have better equipment than anything on the market in my opinion and I have tried almost everything
