I would get the fastest servo with at least 100oz of tq that fits within your budget.

I'm using an airtronics 94357, 125oz tq, 0.07 seconds speed at 6 volts. Many can be found for a great deal here on RCTECH along with EBAY. AWESOME $100+ servo for way less.

I have been using the Spektrum 6040 heli servo's in my touring cars and 1/8 scale onroad with great success. I think they have 170oz of torque. And they are only 70 bucks brand new.

I use an H6040 in my 1/10 TC. Amazing specs for the price. More torque than is needed in 1/10 (167oz-in)and still quite fast (0.08sec/60deg). Titanium gears, dual bearings, coreless and only weighs 1.85oz. The only thing that would make it better would be a slightly shorter wire. It's long. The ears are also a little bit lower than your standard surface servo. Spektrum now have a surface version of this servo (S6040), with shorter wire and ears up higher.

Looks like these Savox SC-1258TG servos are identical specs for $12 less

I've seen that servo in FS forum lately for about $50. Look around, those have been popping up lately as people start to upgrade their servos. Even if you can find an old 94257, that would be good too.

Here's a 94359; gobs of torque and good enough speed. Get it while its still available.
Airtronics 94359 , 94357 Servos
