alittle overkill for the throttle brake but to answer your question yes, it will be fine.

There are tons of steering servos out there that all fit the bill. Depends on your budget and what you intend to do (play or race), here are a couple of alternatives that would all work well:

budget solution: Hitec 645

Medium priced: Hitec 5945 or 5645,

The 90 USD+ solution: JR 9450, Ko-Propo 2143

These are just a couple of the top of my head...

As for throttle servos: Torque is better than speed, look for a servo with a torque rating of 60+ ounces. If you run a digital servo on the throttle, be aware that they tend to burn out if you dial in drag brake in your set-up. To avoid this, stay with analog servos for throttle/brakes. (This is only a concern if you run dragbrakes). Speeds of 0.15s and better @ 6 volts is more than adequate.

Good luck !
