This servo will suit you great. Bought a set for my MP9 International when it released and They both lasted me this long.. Worth the Premium for a Futaba servo.

I could say i run LiFe over lipo, The difference is more volts in Lipo and a LiFe battery weighs a little more. BIG DEAL!! I'm still competitive.

I would stick with savox their less expensive quality servo's.

I say run anything over 10KG for throttle and anything over 17KG for steering when the battery volts say 4.8V but you shouldnt run your car to that voltage anyways.

The 1256TG (for steering) and the 1258TG (for throttle) would suit you well in that buggy if running less then 6.6V and only cost $149.98 from a main hobbies!

I run 1256 steering and 1257 throttle/brake powered by reedy life in my 8.2. Very happy with this combo. No interest in high voltage.

The 1256 being a 280oz/in servo and 0.15se @ 6 V is great on steering. people use them on throttle as well but at almost half as fast as the 1258 it might not be the best choice.
+1 I have been using this setup for 2 seasons now, They have never missed a beat.

CS-170 came out back with 5955 way before any of the new G2 stuff, couple years before 7955. Talk to the folks who actually make it. The 5955's were run at 7.2v by the large scale aero guys for years.

I talked to the LHS. The owner is great. He has actually given me advice in the past that resulted in him losing a sale, so i know he cares about the customers over sales. He runs and stocks this servo (http://www.savoxusa.com/Savox_SC1257...avsc1257tg.htm). I run the 1256tg for steering and I run LiFe rx packs so i think the 1257tg will work well for throttle with my setup. I was going to try saving a buck, but I know I will regret it in the long run. I have heard stories of savox servos being power hungry. Will I have any trouble with glitching or anything like that? Should I run a glitch buster?

This is my exact setup. I just changed from NIMH (Orion marathon 1900) to LIFE (Reedy 1700) and everything seems to be running really well. Yes, the Savox servo's are power hungry and a little noisy if you dont get your setup in a nice neutral position - however, this is another good thing about Savox - more teeth to make sure you get the alignment all squared up! No need to run any trim. You will be very happy with this combo.

Is there no love for Futaba? I run BLS352 for steering and S9452 for throttle/brake. Runs great.

Chances are the CS-170 became a rebadged 7955 when hitec ran out of 5955's. My 5955 survived 8.4v until a horrible firey crash made it buzz odd, but it still works ok. If one of my flawless 7955's ever fail, I'll send the 5955 in at the same time, for the time being, it's ballast in my tool box.
