Default Servo's are mine cool enough?

I live in Camarillo, CA and they are (I hope) making our local track awesome. I stopped by and was going to run my truck and ran into an editor for RC car action and a handful of big wigs that were stoked to check out my truggy and had some killer advice. The one question/suggestion that stuck in my mind is that they told me my severo's (sucked) might think about upgrading. I have a hitec hs-985mg for steering and hs-965mg for the throttle control.

Now I want to know the advantage of servo's with more torque?

My brakes stop on a dime and I push through corners( thats another issue that pisses me off)

Should I think about upgrading or am I OK?

I'm 28 and haven't had an RC car since I was 14. I love the sport and I am way behind the trends. Any help would be appreciated.

Oh and hello to all thanks for letting me ask some questions!

a stronger steering servo will turn the wheels better under loads during corners, faster throttle/brake servo will make better throttle response and faster braking, mostly for corners when you want to get the car to break free to slide around, you can tap the brakes then punch it to kind of drift a corner.

there is nothing wrong with the 985 servos, i use them on my cars, mostly steering. i go for a faster throttle though, i have a futaba s3010, which is a bit faster but not as much torque.

my truggy pushed too, if you run the front sway bar looser, move the links as far out on the end of the bar it will loosen it. i removed the front one from mine and liked that even better. it over steers a bit though. try it, if you don't like it, change back!
