Default HS-7940TH in truggy

has anyone tried a hitec HS-7940TH in a truggy for steering? I have one in my buggy, and I love it but I'm on fence about getting one for my truggy or should I just run a HS-7950TH instead?

Me personally would run a 7950 for steering in a truggy because the specs suit me more for steering. The specs on the 7940 might be pushing it for steering when racing and might cause a premature failure.

I use the 50 in the truggy for steering

For sure more servo than needed in there. I think the 40 would do ok about 90% of the time. You can also look at the 7954TH, it's spec.'s fall right between the 7950 and 7940. It's also a little cheaper.

7950 for steering and 7940 for throttle in truggy for me. I just like being on the safe/overkill side as far a torque on truggy steering. The 7940 would probably do the trick just fine, but why take the risk when you could have the 7950? I will tell you one thing, you won't be missing any speed with the 50, so don't fear that. There is a reason Drake chooses to run the 7950 for truggy steering and 7940 for everything else(truggy throttle and both buggy positions)
