Default 2 steering servos vs 1

i'm thinking i'll probably end up getting a lst but i'm not sold on the 2 steering servo set-up. what are the advantages over one servo? it just seems like more weight and complexity

Well, you can acquire more torque on your steering for starters. Most gian MT's need the top of the line servo, usually the JR at 188 oz, or the 200 oz airtronics. Some people just dont think thats enough. With this design, you could use 2 servos rated at 130 oz for a nice setup, or go insane with 2 of the 188 oz-200 oz servos for monstrous torque. Aside from that, it looks like losi's design is independant. Meaning 2 different servo savers will be used. They'll be stronger, and last longer. The only concern i have is the run time. And about those concerns, how much does one extra servo really weigh? especially when the truck weighs 13 lbs. Complexity? Not really, im sure it will just use a Y harness. If you've ever done a Clod kit with 2 steering servos, then you are probably familiar with it.
