Default Steering Servo....

Is it possible on a TC to use a servo with a torque rating that is too high? Would this make the car difficult to drive?

It's more about speed than torque. The faster the servo is, the quicker it responds to your input. But of course, it requires a proper torque to maintain the speed...

So it takes a little time to get used to a fast servo, if you are used to a slow one. But usually, people learn it fast.

Personally I find that a servo cant be too fast. In general, I would say buy the best you can afford.
