Fresh 6-cell sub-c NiMH packs aren't quite exactly "7.2V" either. I have ran Hitec's H645MG servos with a six-cell NiMH, they don't blow up but they sure do get hot quickly!
If you guys want the biggest bang for your buck, take a look at Hitec's HSR-5990TGs, they are almost half the price of that JR servo:
I don't know if any RC application will require that much torque at this size... That servo was really built for robotics. I had 18 (yes, eighteen) of these 5990TGs at one point in my biped robot (which I sold, the robot is featured in the new Robot magazine with the new owner
If you guys can kludge this in, this is the KING of the hobby-grade monster torque:
Now THAT is torque...
