i ran futaba, and hitec and orion servos for the steering on the eight and never failed me you just have to use the rubber spacers underneth the servo.

and not real expensive ones ethier there around $90 to $105

For steering you want the ace ds1015 not the 1313. The 1313 is good for throttle, but you need the extra torque for steering. The 1015 is only about $5-10 more, but from what i've heard are underrated in terms of power. I hear they actually have alot more torque than the company claims. I run the 1015 in my buggy and truggy, no issues so far and they do a great job. If i had to do it all over again i'd go with the savox, just to try something new to compare between them, but i wouldn't hesitate on grabbing another 1015.
