Excessive or not, I'm thinking the more torque the better, right? As long as you have servo gears that can handle that torque. For things such as holding power, around corners or controlling landings after a bad line off of a jump, etc...
The specs on the HSR-5995TG show the following:
Stall Torque (6.0V): 333.29oz/in. (24kg.cm)
Stall Torque (7.4V): 416.61oz/in. (30kg.cm)
Standing Torque (6.0V): 433.27oz/in. (31.2kg.cm) 5 degree deflection
Standing Torque (7.4V): 541.59oz/in. (39kg.cm) 5 degree deflection
My question is what does stall versus standing mean when used with a buggie? I'm trying to compare apples to apples and the JR DS8711 specs are:
Torque: 403 oz/in @ 6v, 347 oz/in @ 4.8v
But the JR mentions nothing of stall or standing so I don't know what I'm comparing here...
