It's certainly strong enough and with a little cutting would fit in the tray, but it's well slow for steering purposes. Forget the robotics servos and get a true RC type would be my advice.

It will fit with the special servo tray but you will need to add another seperate power supply. That adds allot more weight to the front end. Everyone Hypes the Hitec 5745 servo. The only way to add more power in the size allowed is to add a second servo same size and power. The Tone 050 serve is better for 1/4 scale.

Looks to be a very nice servo, but yes a bit slow. Any idea what the cost is for it?

4 or 5 people at our club use them,and well popular in the UK athough most used in RC have been modified (more speed less torque) and the price of £170 reflects it. Standard they are £130. they seem bomb proof but I have seen 2 fail and require returning for repair

A good choice if you can afford it

Incredibly slow (That .29 response time is unloaded. .35-.40 is more likely fully loaded)
Incredibly expensive (I could buy 2 5745's for less than one of those and have 2/3's the torque at more than twice the speed with no need for a separate pack)

Although it is strong, it's WAY overkill for any situation you may encounter.

Go with a Hitec 5745 or a Rhino. You'll be MUCH happier in the end.

Well, the Tonegawa is not the fastest one, that's for sure. But servos slow down under load and what's full load for normal servos is a cake for this one. So the actual speed under the load of a 1/6 scale buggy is better than you may think. My boss wanted me to install it for him in a Formula 1 and a Marder in the past. He ran 6-cell battery packs with Multiplex servos for throttle/brake. Servo speed has never been a problem and the Tonegawa's reliability is outstanding. Never killed a gear in two years. And my boss is not easy on the equipment.

I think that 98% of all drivers would get the same lap times with a Tonegawa as with a numerically faster servo.

Yeah, but we all had enough change out of our Multiplex and Hitec servos compared to a Tonegawa to buy a tuned pipe
