JR 9000s is the fastest servo you can get 0.06 sec at 6V and I think about 120 torque. I would think this is ideal for steering and fine for throttle also. ~$115 street price.

If you want cheaper, there are some Hitec servos in the $85 range like the 6965 which is 0.08 speed and close to the same torque.

Below that I think the next price range is $40-50 and there are many choices like 645MG but not sure it's fast enough or strong enough.

If you're racing 1/8 scale go ahead and invest in a high end servo. I doubt you would be disappointed.
