Default Steering servo recommendation needed (Kyosho DBX)

Can anyone recommend a durable steering servo for a Kyosho DBX (1/10 4wd buggy)? It's going to run on 4-AA alkaline batteries for the foreseeable future, and I care more about torque and durability than speed, and I would like to spend less than $50 if possible (the whole buggy was only $220). This is just a basher car, no racing. Can anyone recommend a model or brand? I'm not really sure how many oz of torque is required for this setup.

IMO
HITEC- HS-985MG High Torque Coreless Metal Gear. around $60
or Hitec 645MG around $30..
Good warranties and the 985 would be the best choice at your price point..

Torque oz./in. (4.8V/6.0V): 144 / 172 on the 985

Torque oz./in. (4.8V/6.0V): 107 / 133 on the 645

Thanks guys. I got a HiTech HS-645MG from the LHS, $35, not too bad. Went in pretty easily, though I did have to get a new horn. Definitely stronger than the original, I'll find out how it drives when the rain goes away!
