Airtronics 94357
Fast, strong, and has been very reliable for me.

They go for around $99 US

SPECS: Torque: 125oz per inch. @ 6 volt
Length: 1-9/16" (39.5mm)
Width: 3/4" (19mm)
Heigth: 1-1/2" (38mm)
Weight: 1.9oz
Speed: 0.07 seconds at 60 degree rotation-6 volt operation

At 4.8 volts it is 100 oz/in and .10 seconds

Whats wrong with your hitec? Being that this is for a buggy, I'd just go with a budget servo, such as a JR 590M. Its metal geared, has ball bearings, and 80oz torque. More than enough for steering on a buggy. Cost is $40 new, or can be found all over ebay for a around $20, usually new.
If you want to go high end digital, then the Airtronics line is very good.

The JR 590 is a nice servo.
It has plenty of torque. 80oz/in for a 2wd buggy is plenty. The reason I like the airtronics is the speed.
Once you use a faster servo on a B4 for steering, you never look back.

I have always had pretty good luck with the newer hitec servos. I would probably go with a HS-5925MG servo.

Either the Airtronics 357 or 359 servos are very good.

Go with the JR 8800s, Its an amazing servo. I believe it is .08 110oz and digital. I have one in my T4 and i like it a whole lot more than the 94757 that i have in my b4.

My favorite 1/10 class steering servo (best bang for the buck too) is the Futaba S9451. Super speed and super smooth, plus you get Futaba's great customer service.

I am using a futaba 9451 in my 777 sp2 for steering.

120 oz of torque with a transit of .10 $75 or so

this servo will work excellent in a 1/10 buggy or truck
