If your steering is free moving ditch the stock servos wnd spend the cash on a couple good they have been good for over a year so far well worth the cash. You can find some good hitec servos a little cheaper but either way spend the money once and get good servos....

Here is a great servo... I still have the first generation of this servo now for 3 years.

http://www.amainhobbies.com/product_...-Digital-Servo

I been trying http://www.amainhobbies.com/product_...gh-Speed-Servo in throttle and it is holding up well.

The 8ight 2.0 RTR servos are pretty much break-in servos lol if they last that long.

It was funny I got a brand new one in my buggy once and I was trying to do a fuel time run the servo was brand new before I started the buggy I stopped at 5:31, because the servo fried hahahaha. Mind you this was the bottom of the line JR servo (Jr, Spektrum, Losi)

And if you still have some hope in JR I'm about to kill it, even Adam Drake uses Hitec servos now.
