Servo for 2wd buggy ?

Hi

How strong must the steering-servo on a 2wd buggy be ?

I have an Losi-XXX with Epic 12x1 motor.

Thanks

Hitec 5925 is the servo for me. 125 oz @ .08 sec. Its more than you need.

I would say for a buggy may be a max of 70 ozs is required?

I ran the 925MG as well in my truck and buggy. very nice for the price.

Thanks racers !

I was wondering about putting in a servo with about 45-50 OZ. I will put in a Futaba 9550 instead, it's about 67 OZ

Thanks

I am deathly afraid of Hitec servos.

I use Airtronics radio equipment in all of my cars..I like the 357 for my 2wd buggies.

I have had this hitec servo for quite some time, no problems. As for airtronics, I have the MX-3 radio, quite a nice peice.

I think both companies are not bad, but airtronics as more issues with there cheapo servos than hitec in my honest opinion. Seem too many of them break gears WAY too easily.
