    How Much Torque Does a Servo Need?

    How much to turn 3.8 mashers with 1 servo? I bought a roller that came with 2 servos rated at 244 oz/inch each. Can I take one out or should leave them both in? Thanks!

    You should be fine with one... good thing about having both is that you can test it!
    Whatever it is I just typed... could be wrong.

    That would depend on your driving conditions but 244 will work fine!

    a single stock servo is 125 in/oz of torque... X 2..250 in/oz....
    What brand & how many Volts...??
    Would you go flip my truck back over??

    I thought the 2056 was stock... making stock torque out to be 160 total at 80 a piece.

    I'm not sure what brand. I'll take a closer look when I can. It's got brown, red, and yellow wires (maybe that's unique to a certain manufacturerer?) and thE guy says its 244oz @ 6v.

    Guess that is another difference between brushed and brushless.

    Possibly a Hitec servo, they used those colors. Futaba and Traxxas are both red/black/white. Some "EBay China Special" servos have odd color wires.

    But to answer the origional question, yes one of those servos would do just fine by itself in the truck, save the other as a backup?

    Hmm well I contacted the PO and he said its a PPP servo, which seem to get mixed reviews. But I tried it out and it works great as a single.

    244 oz/in isn't enough really, I got mashers on my Emaxx with a 250 oz/in and in soft dirt it don't steer so well, with the badlands on its great. the only other thing is with a 300 oz/in your steering is nice and quick but the servo saver wears out so fast, i've went through 2 this summer, I need an Aluminum one.

    I would probably stick with a name brand!
