    I've noticed that as well with my Savox throttle servo.It's as quick as those costing far more, I will tolerate the noise for that being I just paid $67 bucks for it :D

    I had two Savox for review and they both were very good servos but noisy. Once you start your engine, you will no more notice the servo noise :)

    I use Team Associated servos for more than 3 years now and I don't plan to use anything else. They are a little bit slower than others high priced servos but they work so nice, I don't want to use anything else.

    I really got a great deal on my Associated XP1015 Digital Servo, I used it for a steering servo for my RC8.2. I got it for $87 bucks with free shipping. Too bad because that's the last one , I was going to buy 2. :D

    For a steering servo I'm using the Hitec 7955.

    I have had great luck with the Associated digitals. I use them in almost everything I have (at least 5 different cars) and never had a single problem. For 1/8th steering, I would use a DS1015.

    Anything with 200oz of torque is enough

    I always ran the hitec 645mg for about 2 years of replacing them after 6 months in the savage. I then opted for the JR 9100T and I never looked back. That servo held up for a good 4-5 years until I sold it and it still worked perfect. Probably about the best $120 I spent. If I were to do it again I would get the 9100S. That 350oz of torque was nice but not needed really. Especially not in a buggy or truggy. I'd rather have the extra speed
