I've run as little as 130oz on the steering with great results. If you think about it, 300oz will be overkill unless you lock down the servo saver. With a pretty tight servo saver setting I had no servo deflection on the bench with a Hitec 5625 (1310z/in). I use a 5945 because it's stronger and has a faster/coreless motor. Been using if for 3 seasons.

Thank you for all your replies, but maybe I should have rephrased it. How much torque is a recommended "minimum" for a competitive racer? I am looking at the futaba BLS452 which has 194 in/oz or the futaba BLS351 with 208 in/oz. Would these be sufficient?
Those will work I am using the very same 2 in my buggy. I'm running the 9000T and 9000s in my truggy.

I've ran servos with 130 oz with no problem at all. Not sure why you need 300 oz in the steering on a buggy. If you're at full lock on your radio and you try and turn your front tires and your servo saver moves before the servo then you've exceeded your maximum torque requirements. Any more won't help anything....

That being said right now I've got a JR 9100S and I love it. I tried the ACE 1015 but the .1 speed felt kinda slow in the quick direction changes, .06 makes the car feel way more responsive. YMMV.

The reason someone suggested "As much torque as you can afford," which was very sound advice, is because between the weight of these buggies and the abuse they put the servos through either turning or landing jumps at speed it's worthwhile buying once than having to replace one often because you went with a cheaper/less torque model. Check out the torque rating on some of the namebrand servos that come in the RTR buggies and truggies, that people are always griping about having to replace, and go higher than that.

Yes, either of these would be fine. I would go for the bls351 - great servo. I ran it in a buggy and now in truggy.

I used to run the JR 8711 that have 300+ oz of torque. They are good servos but I think they are overkill. They are also slow, heavy and drain your battery quicker.

I know run either the 9100s or the ace's. The 9100s feel more connectected to the car because the are so much faster but the Ace's are probably tougher. Either one is great for steering on a buggy.

I've been wondering, is their such a thing as having to fast a steering servo for 1/8 buggy? I ask because I figure at some point too fast will make buggy to twichy? I am also looking for a good steering and throtle servo combination.

(you would think the T is for thottle and S for steering... or maybe im the one mixed up?)

the 9000T has 300+ oz of torque
the 9000S reacting time is like .06 seconds at 6V

cant ask for anything better, and JR has the best warranty out there, 3 years hassle free.
t= torque not throttle
s=speed not steering
