Every servo I bought for offroad is high torque and I use the same one for throttle and steering.

Default hello

I recommend the 7955 for steering because it has a lot of torque and is durable.

but for throttle duty hitec can't beat the bls 451 Futaba for smoothness speed and precision, resolution.....

steering you want a good servo, anything pretty much works for the throttle!

Steering-

Throttle-

These servos are epic imo. Running them in my Losi 8ight and have had zero problems. The steering servo has handled a few full speed hits into chanlink with out a prob.

I won't run a speed servo in a losi at throttle anymore! Torque for both. JR 9100T, hitec 7955, or hitec 7950TH. Maybe other cars are easier on the throttle servos but a losi will eat a speed servo pretty quick. I'm not a good enough driver to feel .05 of a second faster!
