Default Need steering servo advice for 8T 2.0.

I don't mind spending the money, but for the most part I'm looking for the best "bang for the buck." I have been looking at the HT7955, but I would like some other opinions before ordering. What I have in there right now is the AE DS1313 out of my SC truck. It works well, but I am looking for something a little stronger before I get it on a track.

What is the minimum torque needed for a truggy?

I ran the 7955 in my Losi and i loved it.. Now i run the 7950's HV in everything.. I think they are the best servo's you can buy.. Just my .02

This is for an electric conversion, which may change the answer.

i would buy a 7950 but my ESC does not pump out enough volts to make use of it... and i dont care to add a BEC to the setup

I run the 7950s in buggy and truggy and absolutely love them (7940s on throttle duty). I wasnt a fan of Hitec in the past but these have made me a believer.

+1 again on the Hitec 7955. It will take Lipo without a problem. Hitec's customer service is also one of the best in the hobby.

I am another one for the 7955 and the customer service of Hitec. They have always been outstanding.

I had bought all 7955's last season. decided to go lipo with no reg and ya I know everyone does it anyways. I am trying the savox 1267/1268's. BUT IN MY E-TRUGGY I LEFT MY 7955TG. so my point is, hitec 7955tg for sure!!!
