Easy robot and Question

I have one of these boards (well a version of it anyway) that I use for a couple of non-robot projects but this looked like fun. The question is how much weight can a modified RC servo like this carry? Are some servos "stronger" than others?

I wrote the vendor to ask about the details of the IR system -- he said an article is forthcoming but I think I can figure that part out myself if I have to.

the datasheets have torque listed for each servo ;D

this should get you started with IR:
