I actually did this about a year ago. The problem is. Unreliability! I burnt up 6 motors and stripped internal tranny gears. You can make it work with a nice 1/18 motor probaly but when you start spending that money buy a quicksand winch what I have done that has proven awsome is I wired a esc like a rooster crawler etc... directly to the servo winch motor. Now I have done this a few ways including running front and rear winches with on off switches in line with the power. Making it possible to run both at the same time or individually. Also. You can wire the esc to one battery or run a separate pack for both it's up to you? It's defiantly a cool concept. I thought I was gonna be the man with that setup. But after many hours of test and tune it proved unreliability compared to a standard servo winch with esc powering it.

before my Quicksand winches I used a servo gutted and ran a FXR or B1R from tekin as a variable speed winch controller and allowed me to run 3s on the motors... I still do that with my QS winches works awesome never had a problem with that setup..

No I don't think those servos will handle the beating I would give them
