The 8B 2.0 RTR is my first buggy. I'll be switching the steering servo to throttle, but how much torque/speed for steering is needed without getting into overkill?

Is the HS-965MG with 144oz @ .10 sec enough?

Thanks,
Evvy

yes that should be a good enough servo i dont think you need 200oz of tourge for a buggy but that is just my opinion.

im thinkin a min of 200oz. more torque equals more steering.

if your servo lacks the torque and struggles to turn lock to lock will give you slower steering response.what your looking for is enough to turn lock to lock effertlessly when sitting still on the ground.i myself went a little overkill threw in 370oz in my buggy

You should really get a better servo for sterring and put the stock sterring servo in the throttle srvos place. I have the 2.0 truggy and the throttle servo burned out while I was driving. And I have also heard that the telemetry does not work that good at all.

I'm loooking at the Hitec HS-7985MG V2 for steering. And moving the stock steering to the throttle.

172 oz and .13 sec at 6v. A noob like me should be ok with that, no?

Did I really hurt your butt that bad?

As it turns out, your advice is not the end all, be all in RC.

So I didn't take your advice, get over it already and quit following me around.

But torque for gas/break is not as essential as with steering, correct? If I go around 80 to 100 oz and fast for throttle and 200+ oz and fast for steering?

Under .13 sec considered fast?

Considering this Bluebird 821DMG+HS servo for throttle.

Anyone else using this brand or are they just crap?

followin you. hmm, no. most places here in rctech will have my wheel tracks there already. i get quite annoyed when i try to relay pieces of my 20yrs in the hobby to some1 who asks and they just waltz off and do the 1st thing some guy with a 'lotta stuff' on his/her car tells them at the track. then comes back again and asks for opinions on more stuff. respect those who do take time to try and help you get into the hobby, some of us are not just kids bored on the net who do better in talkin bout rc, then actually doin so.

spend the $ on good servos. JR has a great warranty (3yrs) and horizon will back you in event u have a prob. a brace of 8800s will be ideal, and are often on some type of sale at Amain, stormer, or tiltedRC. the 9000/9100 stuff is much more $ and its also a bigger servo case so u might not like the fit. the 4800s are analog and nowadays not much less than the 8800s. so a pair of those is an ideal fit for some1 looking to buy servos once and once only.

just must really be a nice guy who wants to help. gee i crack myself up.

R

u'll find i'm in many Losi RTR threads...and for good reason.

The stock JR steering servo stripped out on me within my second tank at a track.
I put a JR Z9100T in and it works wonderfully. It doesn't have the best speed spec but it has so much monster torque I really don't notice nor could I care less. It seems as fast as "faster" servos.

JR Z9100T
370 oz/in @ 6V
.15 sec / 60 degrees @ 6V


I have an old hitec 945 I need to get rebuilt. When that happens, I will put that in my throttle position. I haven't had a problem with the stock throttle servo yet. I can still make the buggy do an endo at the end of the strait at my track.

Evidently the bluebird servos are crap so scratch that question.
