Default Which Servo?

I have an electric 1/8 buggy I am putting together and I have two servos I could use on the steering. Both are Hobbico brand digital metal geared servos. One is a CS-150 which has 192oz of torque and .21 speed rating. The other is a CS-140 which has 131oz torque and .14 speed rating. So my question is should I go for speed over torque? 131oz sounds a little light for steering but the CS-150 seems kind of slow. What are you guys using in your 1/8 buggies?

I am running the JR Z9100S. It is a speed servo but still packs 180oz/in at 0.06sec. I couldn't ask for any better servo and does everything I could ask. I have also used an JR 8711 but the extra torque for my 8ight felt like a waste. I would rather have the high speed of the Z9100S then the torque of the 8711.

The servo cost me around $150 CAN. So if your budget isn't as much. For around $50 bucks my favorite servo is just a HS-5645MG.

Here is my personal list of my favorite servo's for the price that I have tried. I am sure there are more servo's that are also good, but I am only listing the ones I have tried.

$50
HS-5645MG

$100
HS-7955TG

$150
JR Z9100S

Thanks for the feedback guys, but if you had to choose between the two that I mentioned which would it be, torque or speed? I will definetly check out your selections and may be I will need to just go out and buy a servo with both torque and speed, I just hate spend more money when I have two perfectly good servos.

If I had to pick between the two I would go with the torque one over the speed of the two you have listed.

Torque definitely. 192 oz might be plenty for you. Speed isn't nearly as important, in fact I don't like a steering servo to be too fast. I used a 9100s for awhile and it was quite twitchy. Depends on your style though, some like that.
