Many will argue this topic but IMO I think the more torque the better. I used to run an airtronics 94358 for steering in my jammin crt and while it was rated at 200 oz in, I felt that the servo was having a hard time keeping up with the truck wheels and tires. Well I now have an mbx5t with a Jr 90000t which is digital and rated at 320 oz in of torque, and this servo will flick the tires end to end with no problem what so ever. So far this seems to be a good truggy servo but if it were to fail a hitec 5955tg is my next choice.

I've run the Ace Digital DS1015 for 2 1/2 years now with no problems. It's got 200 oz./in torque at a blazing fast .10 speed. It's been in my Revo, my truggy and now my buggy. Can't beat that!

Without the proper torque, the speed rating is useless in a vehicle, as it then can not turn the wheels or apply the brakes (depending on application). First buy for the amount of torque you need (better to be in excess also) then shop around for the speed you want within that torque rating.

Yes you can:
JR Z9100T 370 oz/in @ .15 seconds
JR Z9100S 180 oz/in @ .06 seconds
Futaba BL451 210oz/in @ .13 seconds

EDIT: I shouldn't have stated "Yes you can:" I should have stated comparable with more torque or speed.
