053 kills power, makes it smooth... look at a JP3, when ever you need power, JP3 is the pipe. run time wont be as good as 053 though....

just my opinion<br type="_moz" />

RE: 1/8 buggy servo questions

1/10th and 1/8th work with each other... IMHO you just want 250 oz/in of torque or more for steering in 1/8th scale.
