I did wonder the same thing. Then again, some people manage with a 645.

The 5945 is better suited for steering on an MT IMO. Personally I have used 5925's for steering on my smaller, lighter cars - from touring cars to 1/8th buggies. .08 transit speed is pretty decent for a comparitively low cost servo with decent torque. They're very good servos. But for truck, 45's are better than 25's, same servo - just geared for torque rather than speed. Either way, digital servos are much better than similarly specced analogues, because their holding power at and around neutral is far greater, plus they centre more accurately.
