Default Torque or Speed?

I forgot what kind of servo you wanted for steering on a 1/8 buggy.

was it Torque to pull those Buggy tires or was it speed to turn them quickly?

get a hitec 7955 or 7954 and you'll be happy, run them on buggy and truggy for throttle and steering.

when in doubt, choose torque.

Anyway am using a Hitec 7955tg for steering and a Futaba 9402 (very efficient servo) for throttle.

Couldn't be happier

Anybody have good luck with the Hitec 7940 for steering? I'd like a faster servo than the 7955

Then run a 7950 on lipo and it's plenty fast. If that's not enough then turn the expo up on your radio or speed function depending on who've radio you have. I would not run a 7940 on steering. I don't think it will hold up to 1/8 scale.

I use JR's Z9100t because i want the servo to able to hold the front tires the direction i am turning. I have used cheapo servos before and they would "glitch" straight and then go back to turning under high stress situations.
