Default Servo Torque

Hello, I just purchased a tc4 and need to buy a servo for it. I was wondering how much torque and speed in the servo do I really need? Any suggestions? Thanks

It all depends on what kind of track you drive on!!!
If it is a short track get a high torque servo!!!
If it is a normal track get a normal one!!!

It is a short track and on asphalt. What about speed?

Speed:

Generally the faster the better, I run 0.06 in all my cars and they are very good to drive. I'd try for something faster than 0.10 if you can as slower than that on a short track may not allow you to take the best lines

Cool Cool. So I gather then that for short track speed is probably more important then torque? I have a servo that has .15 speed and 160 or so oz of torque. I will look further for something else then.
