Default Hitec servo question

I have a XXX-NT with a Novarossi Top engine also wik a Jr-590 steering servo. It has 80Oz of torque and seems to work fine. I've seen the one Hitec servo, with 120oz of torque in it, and would like to know how much more a difference I'd notice in steering if I replaced my JR one with this one ?

Default RE: Hitec servo question

In general, steering doesn’t require a lot of torque. A 50 oz servo is good enough. Servo speed makes a much bigger difference. The faster the servo, the faster the steering response. The difference between a 0.2 sec servo and a 0.1 sec servo is noticeable when racing. The car reacts quicker. But if you’re not racing then it doesn’t really matter much.
