Default Rovan 5B servo upgrade + Lipo

I want to upgrade the steering servo in my Rovan 5B Baja. I am thinking of a Hitec 7955TG since I use them in my aircraft and find them reliable and strong.

Is this servo strong enough?

I want to install a LIPo to speed up the servos. Anyone know if the stock receiver and servos will stand up to a lipo?

That servo is not for 1.5 scale If you want hitec then you should look at the D645WP or?

Or 2 of these plus a special tray and linkage setup.

Would you know if the Hitec DS845WP is a direct replacement? Or is an adapter needed?

Do you think the stock throttle servo will stand a 2 cell lipo? If not what servo would you use for the throttle?

I believe you may need a adapter or spacers and a new servo arm for the Hitec servo's. The Rovan servo will work with a optional servo mount if needed . http://www.rovanrc.com/servos-servo-...s-2145-servos/

If you have a 8218 steering servo the Rovan 8230 servo will work too.

example Hitec servos:
