1258 is good for T/B but i would get the 1256 for steering.

Im running 2 of the same in my D8T....Hitech 7955TG. The 7955 may be a little overkill for the throttle though lol. I am personally a Hitech fan but those 1256 and 1258 savox is good for the money.

The 1256 is the high torque servo for steering. If you put the 1258 in the steering it may strip the gears....but it would be great for throttle. Quick response...

Steering=Torque servo

Throttle=Speed servo
