Questions?? Looking for a servo upgrade for my T-Maxx

Hello,
As the title says, I am looking for an upgrade for my T-maxx's servo. I have a SW-0230MG right now, but it feels like it does not have enough torque when steering in short grass when moving at about 1/2 throttle. I'm looking into HiTec servos, (HS-5685MH 157 ~ 179 oz/in, 0.20 ~ 0.17 speed) (HS-5665MH 122 ~ 139 oz/in, 0.16 ~ 0.14 speed) (HS-5645MG 143 ~ 168 oz/in, 0.23 ~ 0.18 speed) and the (HS-5625MG 110 ~ 131 oz/in, 0.17 ~ 0.14 speed), they all seem to be nice with 5685 and 5665 being able to take 7.4v but some have higher torque-lower speeds and some are faster with lower torque. I am wondering if any of you would know the best speed/torque ratio for my T-maxx, it is the 3.3 but is able 10mm longer so I would say it's a 1/8.
Sorry if this is in the wrong forum, should it be in the Radio and Electronics sub-forum?

price point?

I just went through about 10 of my hitec servos that I use to use before I started distributing my own servos ... I have many hitec 5955tg ... 7955tg and 7954sh ... all essentially the same servos

lmk if you may be interested .... I haven't started a for sale thread yet

I don't have a huge budget, so I'm hoping to keep it under $40-45

are you just replacing the steering servo?

remember to change the servo horn if you are replacing with a servo which has a dfrnt tooth spline

I'll think about it, you seem to be a good seller , I was just saying that for the hitec servos I mentioned. Another question, what is the best speed for a servo, .20 seems like it would be super slow but I would gain a bunch of torque that way.
