My Rover Wheel Design

Whilst finishing off a new wheel design for my rover I thought I'd grab a quick pic and post.

The wheel design uses a mindsensor bracket to house a continous servo turning a Lego off roader wheel. This sits under a turntable which will turn using a medium PF motor. This was the last wheel so all I have to do is attach to the Rocker-bogie!

What kind of servo you use?
Have You Sufficient torque?
Why yo don't use another servo to turn the turntable?
