The servo is one of the components I would spend extra money on. It will make a big difference in performance of your driving, and because it is a stress component, durability is very important. I currently run Futaba 9550's, this is a low profile servo. It is a teriffic servo for T/C's, it is fast, compact and lite-weight. I have had the servo's for three race season and have never had any problems what so ever. If I was shopping for a servo today I would also look at the KoPropo Low Profile Servo. I have had great experiences with Ko Propo's other products and I know from speaking with other racers they make very good servos. I understand they are more money then other servos in the market, but buying quality once is normally cheaper then having to buy something cheaper twice. Good Luck!
