611oz!? I would call that tripple overkill! None the less, I approve

I'm running 400oz and .13 for steering and throttle. These are HV servos with titanium gears.

Speed isn't as big a thing to me as power and reliability.

That Said I run 333oz @ 6v with .16 response times on both buggy and truggy. but I run them at 7.4volts and get over 400oz of torque and around .13sec response times. More then adequate..

In my buggy I have been running servos with 175 oz torque and .13 speed. I thought they worked great, but after reading all the posts, it looks like I may be underpowered.

How about 190oz @ .1s for steering? These solar servos are looking mighty tempting! d771 in particular. No BEC so cant run 7.4 volts

I ran the Savox SC-1258TG for 2 years as throttle and steering in my buggy. 166oz and .08 for speed. Took it out after getting picked up by Radiopost Gave it to my dad and he's been running it in his SC since.

I currently run Radiopost Mulitypes which are 305oz and .07 speed. The main difference I can tell is when when you need to quickly snap outta trouble, or when "whiping" it in the air it is more responsive due to the torque.

I would not go for anything under .09 for buggy. You need that responsiveness.
