Default Fastest servo?

Allright jokers, here's the deal,

I need a quick (preferably the FASTEST) digital servo they make, tourque is not an imidiate issue considering the application will be in a touring car. about 80oz/in is enough tourque.

I've seen the JR 9100s servo and its rediculus speed, is there anything faster?

At our track the fastest servo is Scoota's JR, you should see the speed that baby hits down the straight!!!

Ninja Power!!!!

I run JR servos and the 8800's and 9100's are some of the best servos on the market imo.
I would have to think that the JR9100s is about as fast as you can get.

I have a 9100s and it is stupid fast. I don't know if it is the fastest around, but I can't imagine you needing something any faster then this.

If there is anything much faster than a 9100s then you will probably start to run into issues with your radio not being fast enough.

JR is a fine choice, great rep at our LHS. But consider the Futaba brushless BLS451 too. Yes, I know the official rating is slower, but in car they seem wicked fast. Certainly seem quicker than the FET KOs I have with better ratings. Tried them because of a bud that had one and the Airtronics (737??) also with a better rating. Almost seems like the radio is glitching when you play with the wheel. And they are a touch cheaper. The brushless should be more reliable/consistent over time.

And it’s just cool to have a totally brushless ride. Cheers!

9100s is 0.06 seconds (60degrees/6v)/ I am 99% sure it the fastest around. I am pretty sure Ko Propo and Airtronics both have servos in the 0.07 and 0.08 second range--but I think the 9100s and 9000s take the cake.

I also have a 9000s --which was also rated at 0.06 seconds but with less torque than the 9100s, and to me the 9000s does feel and look a bit faster even with the same speed rating.
