Default Steering servo

I have a choice between 2 steering servos for my MF2 truck.


A JR Z590M, and
A Hitec HS-645MG servo.




Which one do you think is better?


The JR is a little bit faster ( .15s vs .20 s ), but has less torque ( 85 vs 133 oz )



They both have metal gears, but the Hitec have 2 BB and the JR doesn't have any BB ( from the spec on the JR website...)



Thank you for your inputs...

Well I use a 645 for throttle/brake in large scale so can't be too bad :-) I would go for as much torque as possible, plus metal gears...as long as not too slow.

I think the JR probably has enough torque to serve as a steering servo in an ST, and its extra speed may be an advantage over the Hitec.
Do you already have both servos and are deciding which to put in, or are you deciding which to buy?

If you already have both, try them both in the truck, and see which gives you a better feel.

Actually I have both.... But I have two trucks, one for me and one I give to my 13 years old stepbrother.




Since he's so young, he'll become much better than me very soon ( I'm 29 ) so I want to keep the best servo for me ( ya know.... so that at least I have a slight chance against him!!! [>:][:-] )

A servo isn't going to help much. You need to start playing videogames with him to develop those twitch reflexes.
