Default Hitec HS-5955TG for steering?

I was wondering if anyone is using the HS-5955TG for steering on an HPI Savage. I purchased this servo and was wondering if this servo would be alright for that function. Thanks.

ORIGINAL: turbohardtop I was wondering if anyone is using the HS-5955TG for steering on an HPI Savage. I purchased this servo and was wondering if this servo would be alright for that function. Thanks.
HS-5955TG specification sheet indicate specs above those usually required for your purpose. Ensure your steering is set to travel freely from left to right without any binding at the extremities (use low steering rates in need). Digital servo burn out quickly if unable to travel freely from end point to end point. "This digital, programmable servo has been designed for the most demanding hobby applications including the largest aircraft and monster trucks.
Featuring a titanic 333oz./in. of torque at 6.0 volts, all this power is harnessed by incorporating the industries first Titanium gears for incredible wear resistance and two strong hardened steel gear pins and axial brass bushing in the servo case. "

(Post amended. I regret my original answer suggested using an alternate Hitec "HSC" car digital servo. I had confused the size of the "Savage", as marketed by HPI, with another brand sold locally.)

While the 599X series servos were made specifically for cars, the 5955TG has exactly the same case design and geartrain and has proven to be incredibly durable for cars and trucks; the only difference is the motor and wire.

The 5955TG IS the best choice for monster trucks like the Savage and 1:8th truggies. The 5997TG is the best choice for 1:8th buggies and 1:10 on and off road cars and trucks.
