I am looking to buy 2 srvos for my new D8T Truggy. I have NOT A CLUE what I need. Here are my guidelines :

1. DURABILITY !
2. LiPo compatable without having to run a regulator
3. Cost under $120 per servo

Give me your experience please.

I've been very impressed with Savox Servos. This would fit all 3 of your demands.

X2 I have been runing the 1268sg's with no complaints, can go to the 1267sg for steering if you want something faster.
Another option is the hitec 7955tg, meets all your needs also.

The Savox 1268's are your best bet if you want hv for under 120. If you look around you can find hitec 7950's for close to that. I have 1 practice and 1 race day on the 1268's in my truggy. So far so good. Zone say they hold up as good as hitec. Time will tell.

Savox and hitec meet the price i think hitec is a bit more.

Ko-Propo......Absolute hobbies is selling the recently out dated ones for like $80 These were $140 each 4 months ago. They are great servos and Ko service is fast and friendly if you ever have any issues. 2386 ics and 2368 ics.

I have never tried savox yet, Im sure there really good servo's, but the hitech 7955 is one awesome servo. It can handle high voltage unregulated

Hitec 7955 fits your description to a tee. Nothing comes close on durability. The Orion/Savox gears are weak from my experience. I know how to set my epa's and I don't crank the servo saver tight and I have still striped a couple sets of the Orion gears. I am not knocking something blindly I am just giving my experience.
