I'm using Hitec servos

HSC-5996tg for t/b
torque @ 111oz
speed @ .10sec/

HS-5995tg for steering,
Torque @ 333oz however this one is discontinued and the up dated one is the HS-7955TG.

These are what I use for my xray 808. Hitec has great customer service along with a good warranty. If you have any problems with them make sure you save your receipt.

I recently got the HS-7955tg which I will be using as a back-up servo just in case. When buying servos you might as well go with the best.

make sure you consider the fact that you cannot run analog servos in HRS mode if you have a futaba 2.4 system

once lipos ....if not all ready are legal in all forms of rc .....there is just no comparison between the 2 ....its a known fact that nimh cells drop off greatly after even minutes of use .....if you had ever tried a lipo and see the constant power they deliver along with the holding power ....its just unreal ....i can easily run all day including mains with out ever even charging ...allthough just because ...i charge after 2 heats and before the mains ...the only nimh pack that even comes close is the stickman 2500-2700 packs ....and even they drop off after just one heat race .....from zixxer thinks the world should run lipos ....it just makes sence .....and just look at the manufacturers ....they are all pushing lipos now .....

i here ya ...i see people that dont want to switch at the track alot ....at this point theres really no danger in them ....the danger came early because people didnt have the right chargers and such ....but now there pretty much bullet proof ....theres just too many advantages to them ....but if you must stick with nimh try this .....

Until servos that can ACTUALLY handle a 7.4v load are released, the best option is still NiMh. Too many bad things have happened with using a regulator, etc. etc.

For the record, I use a Reedy 1600mAh hump or Venom 1200 stick (backup pack), and I will usually only have to charge one of them once in a whole night of racing. You can see in my sig that I'm not running low-power analog servos, either.

LiPos are great power sources for electric motors, and that's all I would ever consider using them for. Not to mention I could buy a couple of NiMh packs for the cost of a lipo Rx pack, and have about 100 less worries.
