Default Thrust Vector Servo Speed

For thrust vectoring, what speed servos are too slow?

Debating between a .08 450oz servo and a .06 300 oz servo. Guessing the 450oz servo would have a longer life under the punishment of the nozzle, BUT, I really don't have a feel for how hard it really is on servos. It's for a Comp ARF J-10

Speed is down to the gyro information update rate. But on a vector its not so important

300oz at 1cm (3/8") is not the same as 300oz at the end of a 1 1/2" arm, but leverage on the vector pipe end is usually better than 1:1 so you will be fine with either

Understand the leverage bit. Speed costs as much as torque so I might as well go strong on the torque and let them be underwhelmed
