Default 8ight steering servo

Is a futaba 9452 servo good enough for a losi 8ight buggy for steering?

its defiantly on the lower end of the scale....i would recommend something a little better that will last multiple season's to come.

Anything is the New Hitec 79XX lineup will do.

Im not sure how much torque that is, but Adam Drake told me that all you really need for steering is 125 torque, .15 speed. Ive ran servos from 90oz .15, 125 .06 and 145 (9450) and they all ran decent. I'm going to try out the Hitec 7955TG to see what everyone is raving about.

yah thats what ive been hearing, because the rtr come with a 590m i believe which is 90oz of torque and it seems to be plenty, i mainly like the speed of my 9452. I have another servo which is 150oz of torque so i can use that if i need to. And my 9452's have lasted years in my 10th scale and i have abused them to the max, I think futaba will do fine for this job.

1/8 is a Whole other animal....i can almost guarantee they will fail....the losi's are especially hard on servo's like it or not.

the lower the torque on the steering servo the harder it will have to work to maintain it's posistion/direction.....

i thought he LOSI only liked to eat T/B servo's?

i use 7955's for steering on my rides and it is an awesome servo! you will not be dissapointed i run it on a buggy, truggy and monster truck....

i've ran the 9452 in my mtx-4r and i've had the 1st gear on it go before
if you really wanna run a futaba servo
try the 9351 or the 9350 if you want a little more speed in place of a little torque
i ran the 9351 for a few races in an mbx-5t prospec and had the same problem
the 1st gear went
for a buggy they'd be fine
but for the money, why not go with the hitec 7955tg
i have long switched to hitec servos for steering
but i do still use futaba servos for throttle/brake

i run the jr 9100 for steering and jr 4800 for t/b

before i went to these two servos i went thru servos like toliet paper after mexican food

since having these in my truggy and buggy i have yet to burn one out. im waiting for my hobbico steering servo to go out so i can FINALLY upgrade my truggy steering servo, but i have yet to have problems with that servo either
