Default New to On-Road... Servo Help Please :)

I am new to on-road and just purchased a used 007 from a forum member. I have a HiTec HS5945MG from my Factory T4 truck and since I'll be spending all of my time getting to learn on-road, I was thinking about using that servo along with my GTB. The class that I plan to run is the Stock Sedan (which is the lowest available class at my local track... no VTA ).

Here are the specs for the servo I have:

Class: Standard
Digital: Yes
Programmable: Yes
Voltage: 4.8v or 6.0v
General Specs:
- Bearings: Dual BB
- Gears: See Notes
- 60 speed: .16 sec @ 4.8v
- 60 speed: .13 sec @ 6.0v
- Torque: 153.00 oz/in @ 4.8v
- Torque: 181.00 oz/in @ 6.0v
-- 1.20 x.80x1.50 inches

Is that enough or do I need more speed/torque? Thanks for your help.

That servo should be perfect for Stock Sedan.

Thanks. Is there a "rule" about minimum speed and/or torque? Just wondering what the parameters are.

the 'rule' people like to go by is .10sec/100oz*in. however, you can mess with your linkage ratios to make slow servos faster, and weak servos stronger.

in short, the servo you have will be fine.
