Digital Servos?

I am new to 1/12 scale on road racing. I have a new 12L4. For the same price, is it better to use a digital steering servo or an analog? From my airplane days we want digital for better centering. Is that the case for cars?
Thanks

Denny

yes digital is better. there have been many generations of new digital servos vs not so many improved analog servos.
for 1/12 you might want to check out Futaba, KO and Hitec servos.

Digitals are good but use a lot of juice. The airtronics 94145 is a good analog servo. The 12l4 was built around it.

I've never had problems in electric touring cars, due to the (sligthly) extra power consumption.

Check this out for details about digital servos: http://www.futabarc.com/servos/digitalservos.pdf

Digital servos are better in every way. Faster, smoother, more accurate & center better. Hitec offers a wide range of digital servos at a very low price, much lower than any other companies. www.hitecrcd.com
