Hi, top of the line servo's are very expensive , $300-$400 ! the RT5 needs a fast servo with dual bb's, anything over 3kg of torque will do, i am a fan of hi tec servos for high stress apps but for racing a 2wd truck get something fast and reasonably cheap and buy 2 of em, even the best servo's can and do fail, then you have a broken waist of cash and a DNF, i use the cheapest i can find in my ST £ 2 each but still fully compatible with my spektrum dx3r set to 5.5ms frame rate !,my $100 hi tec aint!!! i bought 10 of cheapo's a year ago after yet another expensive servo died on me, my thinking was to replace them often , still works fine after many crashes at full speed with a 5.5t brushless li-po set up! i still have 9 left and to be completely honest, i cant tell the difference when driving. just an opinion based upon expensive experience. have fun

KO PROPO servo out there PDS-2367ICS . Install it and forget it. I bought a used one and being a new driver really tore my car up but, the servo is still working. Been in RC airplanes for a long time and never saw a servo take this much abuse.

There is no servo for 300-400 dollars... Majority of good servos are around 100... The most expensive is the new JR's which i believe are 150ish...

the most expensive servo i've seen is $200 when new one of futaba's brushless MG HT HS and any other abreation you can think of on it, stupid speed and TQ as well but to be honest i run a $35 tower Ts 140 in my evader and its VERY fast and the only reason i have a wide turning radius is i keep my diff TIGHT, run badlands which push likea dumptruck on ice and my rear end is dropped and my front is jacked (less wheelies) i've been running this servo since the fall and i've had no issues with it ever, i used to run a futaba s3305 until the motor burned out at the begining of the summer, i've run a tower TS 150 in my savage for two years now with no problems unless you count a stipped gear from a bad landing and a locked servo saver, (if its unlocked you'll be fine in a savage in any other aplication i wouldn't worry)

the specs on the TS 140 .12 speed and 80oz TQ on 6V MG and digital very nice servo

the lug

Actually Hitec has a line of industry grade servos that can be as much as $500.00, they are larger than normal size and most run off 12V instead of 5. They are basically super-sized version of the standard size RC servos.

I use a Hyperion DS20 FMD, I believe they can be had for about $45-$50 or so, I have no complaints about it, even though I only bash but it is a great servo.
Other than that...
ACE DS1015 seems to be one of "THE" servo's to get, along with a particular Hitec one that I cannot remember.
And probably a few others I cannot remember right now also...
