200oz/inch+ with .15 or quicker transit time for steering and 150oz/inch+ with closer to .10 transit time for throttle should give you a ballpark.

The Ace R/C DS1313 for throttle and DS1015 for steering are popular.

Hi-tec 7955TG is popular for steering.

JR's 9100 series is solid.

Futaba's new(er) BLS brushless servos are pretty sexy.

I personally run a Futaba 9351 on steering and JR 8800S for throttle. I have no complaints.

Futaba 9452 is my favorite throttle servo, because all it takes is a very light throttle return spring to close the carb off power... so the servo isn't constantly fighting a heavy spring.

I liked the titanium geared Hitec for steering until it died. I now run the Futaba brushless 351.

Hitec 7955 TG has a 5 Year Warranty.

I am really liking my hitec 7955's with an unregulated 2 cell lipo. They can take a beating.

+1 to all of the above..I have found the Hitech 7955, and the JR 9100 series to be the best servo's on the market

for the money ACE - they are half the price and preform very good -

I ran JR servos for a long time and the warrenty is good 3 yrs - but the ace servos i just start using - I got 4 2T and 2S for the price of 2 JR servos

Just my opinion
