If one is stronger than the other, the weaker one might break and leave you screwed.

Also the stronger one might make the weaker one feel insecure and cause it to have poor performance issues.

if you want to use 2 on one end, they have to be the same. Otherwise mix it up, it shouldn't hurt anything.

lol - that was good!

Should'nt matter, I've done it myself. I put the stronger servo in the front, weaker in the back. Since the back only serves as a sort of emergency measure if I get stuck or need to find that little extra bit of traction. And for cutting tight turns, of course.

yes, put stronger up front, but you also want to think that the rear can pull you out of tough situations, so you don't want a really weak servo in rear (really not important, but good to consider)

and also i cant find the z900t on the jr website.........?

I run a Hitec 5955TG in the front of my super and a Hitec MG945 in the rear.
The 945 is a bit too weak but there is no problem with mixing servos.
