Default Disappointed with Airtronics servos

I recently purchased a couple of Airtronics 94361z servos. They're rated for 200 in-oz at 6V with a speed of 0.07s. I installed one in my buggy and the other in my truggy. In both, they seemed much slower than the advertised 0.07s. They seemed very close in speed to my other 200 in-oz servos spec'd at 0.15s (perhaps a tick faster...0.13s maybe, but not near 0.07s). In my truggy, the 94361z also didn't seem to center well. I believe these are some of the latest Airtronics servos and are digital with a spec'd very fast transit time, which is why I got them. But thus far, they don't seem to have anywhere near the advertised speed and the torque doesn't seem that great either (seems actually slightly less torquey than my other 200 in-oz servos which are cheapy servos that I felt were over-rated).

Can these servos take 7.4V?...perhaps that will help if I decided to go that route. Thus far, of the higher end servos, my best experience is with JRs, which seem to have under-rated torque and speed, contrary to the Airtronics which seem to be considerably over-rated specs from the factory.

Anyone have any ideas, comments, or other experiences with Airtronics' current digital servos?

Thanks.

The servo is not digital, I wondered the same thing when I bought my 94359 and 94360, both have high speed and torque and the heatsink case, but not digital.

Damn, I thought they were digital. I wouldn't think being analog would affect it's performance that much though. Anyone know if these can be run on 7.4V?

Ehh I proly wouldn't run them with 7.4v, airtronics have a new line of "high voltage" servos, they are pretty pricy but very good, the 94773m I think it is are used by ALoT of pros digital high torque/speed combo.
