Default 8ight E 2.0 with a 400 oz servo too much?

is a 400 oz servo too big for a 1/8 buggy?

will this reduce my run time?

its going to be a bit overkill. but it would work. i get away just fine with a 194oz. im using a airtronics 94773 servo and works just fine on a rc8.

it should not reduce your run time by a noticable difference.

Ya 400oz will work just fine. But 400oz is alot of overkill.

I run about 150torque in my steering servo for nitro 8ight (futaba s9451) and it works flawlessly. You really dnt need that mcuh torque, as you will probably have really slow speed.
