Default Truggy servo's

How much torque do I need for a truggy? Is more torque better I found one with 333 oz/in & .15 speed and another at 200 oz/in & .10 speed which should I get?

You should get as much as you can afford. The more the better. 200 ounces is a minimum. I run the z9100t which is 370 oz. They cost $115 in most places.

I run the Hobbico cs-170 which is the 5955 with a different sticker on it at tower for $25 cheaper, and I run the cs-160 on throttle.

I use the ace 1015 in my truggy. By far the best servo I have used.

This is what I'd recommend also...Very strong servo, and they have a better track record for longevity...

Hitec makes servo's for Hobbico and Tower hobbies that are bascially just rebagged. I am running the 5955 hobbico knockoff and love it and it only cost $80 new. And you get $5 off that on towers website. I'm sure there is a difference but that have been working perfect for me (knock on wood).
