For steering you want the ace ds1015 not the 1313. The 1313 is good for throttle, but you need the extra torque for steering. The 1015 is only about $5-10 more, but from what i've heard are underrated in terms of power. I hear they actually have alot more torque than the company claims. I run the 1015 in my buggy and truggy, no issues so far and they do a great job. If i had to do it all over again i'd go with the savox, just to try something new to compare between them, but i wouldn't hesitate on grabbing another 1015.
