Hi, I am newbiee too and have this question before and what I get from the pro is for buggy steering we need atleast 0.15 below for the speed and 10kg-cm @ 6v or if you enough fund to get better servo then go for 0.1 speed and over 13kg-cm @ 6v servo. I got my Ace DS1013 for steering at ebay for $55 shipped and Hitec 645MG for throttle $25 at ebay too. all are depand on your budget.
Pro, pls correct me if I am wrong.

I also use the Ace DS1313 on steering. It rocks! . I have abused mine and it keeps on ticking. Rated at approx .13 and 175 Oz/In torque.
