really 300+ oz of torque on the carb? maybe for steering, but the carb needs much less. it only really needs good torque to be able to apply brakes!

Is it for a .21 motor or something smaller?
Anything under 10kg in a 1/8th buggy will not last long with heavy breaking.

go for something like a 15kg ace or something like it.

808gx7r, i thought you got booted off.... or was that just from that thread.

say hi to Juan for me.

Hitec HS-7980TH - 611oz

This would produce enough stopping power.

LMAO

I have used hitec servos with around 150-160oz on the throttle/ brake and it held up ok. But right now I'm running Savox 1268 on lipo in the truggy, 360oz and ko 30100 which runs 260oz in the buggy. If I did it over again I would use the ko 30101 which rates at 436oz. As long as you set your endpoints correct there won't be an issue.

So you want to BUY Tork? You cant get someone for spelling if you cant spell either.

And yes, it's torque.

I wouldn't use less than 150oz, mostly using it for brakes and don't forget the throttle return spring or rubber band.
