Default micro servo?

has anyone used a micro servo in a 1/10th touring car? would that work or would it be too weak or not be able to take that much movement?

it may be fine until the first crash, then it would probably go *poof*

not enough torque to hold the wheels in a bad crash...or hold the wheels pointed in one direction

now if you were drag racing, then the micro would work ok - since it wouldn't be doing a whole lot of work...

why do you need something small?

the 9550 is a low profile servo - one of the most popular and most reliable
