Default Hitec servo underpowered?

Hey guys I have a hitec hs-5645mg servo in my jammin and I havent ran it yet cause its snowing but it seems like its really slow and underpowered, I just pluged a reciever pack into my reciever cause I dont have my esc yet and the voltage was 5.7v it just seems really slow. What are your opinions on it?

I had one in my RC8 and I don't think the numbers are correct. I switched to a Futaba 3305 when I cracked a gear in the HiTech and the Futaba felt stronger and faster (which is isn't supposed to be). I guess HiTech lower level stuff is just kind of junky.

After reading a bit about this servo on the internet, most people agree it seems kind of slow. It provides good torque, but it isn't necessarily fast.
