you're going to hear lots of different answers and opinions on this. if you were going to do any sort of club racing, you would want to buy the highest spec servos you can afford. i just looked up the car you bought and it's a 1/10 off-road nitro entry level car that sells for $120. i doubt you'll want to spend $100 each on steering and throttle servos.

you'll want decent torque and speed for both servos and they don't have to be the same. digital is preferable but for your purposes, they don't have to be. definitely get metal geared servos so they can handle the abuse of off-road. anything with a transit speed below .15 secs and at least 100 oz*in torque should be fine.

i can only recommend what i have tried but there are tons of servos that'll do the job. here are some very good servos for $60:

if $60 servos are too steep for you, i'd take a look at some good used futaba s9451's.

good luck

go to spektrum and buy the 1/10 metal geared servo. They are about $60 bucks and are the best you can buy for the price.
