Default Futaba S9156 Servo for RC8T ?

Thinking of using Futaba's S9156 servo (Has 340oz of Torque) for RC8T Truggy steering or Hitec's 7955, just wondering if anyone has any feedback on these 2 servos. I have gone thru 2 Futaba S9351 in RC8T already. I have adjusted servo saver after first loss but 2nd Servo also failed.

Are you losing the gear sets or are the motors going out? If it's not the gears, are you sure your endpoints are adjusted correctly? I've been running 9351's in my RC8T with success and they were used in other buggy's and truggy's I've had for two years prior to that.

Losing the gears, I have set EPA's. The only thing differrent I can think of is I am using a 1" long servo horn which may put more stress on the servo.
