I have used this servo from integy as well it did not provide good off power to me as long as you were on the gas it worked perfect and great but if you was costing into the curves it would not have as much power and make you go wide in the curve until you could get on the gas and then adjust to where you would have full power. I quickly took that servo out.

I just purchased a backdraft 8e and it as a 9KG server..  It is ok for bashing but if you are putting the hammer down on a track it doesnt feel responsive nor does it hold its line well.   I don't know about the KG to Ounce conversion these servo manufacturers use but I found a 20KG servo that is suppose to be recommended for buggies.  Based on what I have experienced with the 9KG in my BD I definately want more than a 10 or 11KG servo.  Here is the link  http://shrsl.com/?~1rhu
