HITEC - just remember that the servo needs HOLDING POWER if not you will burn up the servo fast, this is the main problem with servos that come in RTRs.

for steering you want 200 oz.....for buggy - around there... Ace servos will do....... I dont like them but alot of people do - HITEC 7955 - 7954 - 7940 - 7950 - will set you straight.

Yes it will but will not last long becuase it lack the HOLDING POWER and that IMO is what kills sterring servos.

or you sure 140 oz of torque isnt ,enough for a 1/8 buggy for the steering ? i use a orion 1007 servo with, 138 oz of torque seems to hold fine.

ya for a buggy 150 torque oz is fine. the truggy is where you need a lot. as long as its not the losi 1.0 you should be fine. heres what i would recommend for a servo. Ya its a little more but hitec has such great warrenty and service. That servo will last you forever. and if it goes out send it to hitec and they will replace it for free. Spend the extra money now and it will pay off in the long run.
