Default Best servos (need help quick)

What are the absolute best servos that you can get for a truggy. Steering and throttle. I will take in account what the warranty is but im not worried about the price. Thanks in advance for the replies.

I would use (and do) these servos HiTec 5995TG or 5955TG.

JR. make great servos too with very similar performance. But are a little more money..

JR Z9100S (180oz. torque, @ .06 transit speed) $114.95 (for Thr/Brakes)
JR Z9100T (370oz. torque, @ .15 transit speed) $114.95 (for Steering)

IMO the best servos period. 3 Year Warranty if needed...

+1 on those as well. Best support I have ever dealt with. I sent JR a 9000 that quit working. In the letter I said I bought it from a racer during a race. Had no reciept and they sent me a brand new 9100. These guys rule. I bought the 5955tg before I recieved the 9100. The 5955 has been awesome and hitec is a good brand. JR is as well. Either of these servos will get the job done.

+1 here the JR9100's are the best servos on the market imho.
I ran the older 9000t(steering) and 9000s(brake) in my Jammin CRT for 2 years and never had a servo problem.

Today I run 9100s in both steering and brake for my 8ight
