The conversion is approx. 14 oz-in per kg-cm. 1.1 kg-cm @ 4.8v equates to only 15.4 oz-in.
Not really a strong servo at all but adequate to steer a 1/12th pan car IMO.

I'm a sucker always looking for the perfect cheap servo LOL.
I also picked up one of these
and might use it to replace the Futaba s132H in my Associated 1/12th car.
It's the same size as the 212 but specs out much stronger and has an all-alloy case for cooling. It's a bit heavier too but only by several grams. 2.5kg-cm @4.8v = 35 oz-in.
As a side note, these servos are all too fast for me and even on 4-cell (or 1s) I will likely have to turn down the expo on the steering. I got used to the Hitec HS81
in my Trinity MCR but find that I could use just a bit faster than that. The Hitec is a durable servo though and has never given me a problem.
