Speed lower is better. You want fast so less time is good.

Torque higher is better.

Check out Savox for the best price vs performance.

The beauty of this sport is you can really do whatever you like in terms of what brands you buy, setups, etc, the sky's the limit.

My personal opinion is to only buy trusted name brands because those companies have been in business a long time and stand behind their products. Companies like Associated, Losi, Kyosho, Mugen, HPI/Hot Bodies, Futaba, Hitec, JR, Savox, Airtronics, KoPropo, the list goes on and on. Buy whatever fits your budget but realize you will get what you pay for. Sure, there may be a guy or two on here who's had "great luck, no issues whatsoever with my cheap/car/servo/receiver etc", but for the most part you get what you pay for.

But if you're interested in competing in races and don't want to second guess or troubleshoot your equipment all day during an event, stick with the trusted name brands. Personally, I would not buy either the JQ car or the Durango at this point-not saying either is a bad car in any way, but it will take some time before they're on the same level as the Big 5 (Associated/Losi/Kyosho/Mugen/Hot Bodies) and if you're realitively new to the sport, just finding a setup you like can be a daunting task.

If that's the case I would suggest looking for some used hitec hs5985mg's. I use those when I'm on a budget. I've found them used for about the same as a similar spec cheapo servo.

Like the other poster said I would also advise against the JQ, Durango, Serpent, or even Agama, until they have a few years more to work out the bugs and have more setup advice readily available. I love my JQ but it is a challenge to dial in and get it 100% reliable. That challenge is actually a bonus for me, but for someone new to the hobby could be very frustrating and expensive.

I ordered a Spectrum high speed servo that will be in my local shop tomorrow. It's got 167oz. of torque and .08 speed. Specs are impressive and only $80. Look into it.

You can buy some used hitec on ebay, just wait dont buy the no names because they will brake short out, and can cause more damage to you car which = more money. Find a reputable seller and buy used if you have too, i do.

Is it this one? HS-645MG

That's a reliable servo, but is still pretty slow, and not really that powerful. If $50 is in your budget, why not spend $10-20 more and get savox? Otherwise check the for sale section of these forums, for that price range you could find much more suitable used alternatives.
