Whats The Best Servos For A 1/4 Scale For The Money. Do You Need Metal Geared High Torque With Bb. I Noticed Tower Has One That Is The Same As A Futaba As Far As Torque And Speed And They Both Are Metal Geared And Bb. Thanks For Any Help.

I would go with the metal gear in all 3 servos. I have futaba 3005 in the steering & a stock 3003 in the throttle but I noticed it is weak for the brake. So I was thinking of getting another futaba for there.. It sounds like your just getting into 1/4 scale. Welcome.... :thumbsup:

I run two hitec hs645mg servos for steering, 133 oz per inch each @ 6v, and one futaba s3302 1/4 scale for throttle and brake, 162 oz per in. @ 6v. Ran this combo for two seasons with no servo trouble at all. :wave:

I agree with ya there Harry on the steering servos . Aitronics are a little pricey but I never ( knock on wood ) have had any trouble with them , in fact I just took the set out of the sprinter I've used since 2002 , only reason was for I found a wire rubbed raw and figured I better change it and get the wire lead replaced . As for the throttle and brake I use Futaba 3302 , seams to have plenty of power for either operation .
