Default Best servo for 1/10 EP Touring Car

Started my R/C hobby in off road but am now thinking about going into EP touring car now.

What will be a good steering servo to get? Also, are digital servos better?

Will be using a brushless system (either LRP/Nosram or Novak 3.5 turn brushless) powered by saddle pack lipos on carbon fibre chassis. Transmitter will be MX-3 FHSS(2.4Ghz)

What if say space wasn't an issue?
What would be the best then?

I run KO 2413 on my MRE and Futaba 9550 on my TA05. Ran both all this year and couldn't tell the difference between the two but if you break gears on the Futaba you'll have to spend more money than the KO. If you do something worse then you have to send the Futaba to Illinois. The KO here in So. Cal. So maybe depending on where you live might help you make your decision.
Just my 2$

I like JR's 8800s, little salty compared to some, but you get what you pay for

+3 Futaba S9550 I have been using it for about a year now still going strong. Just use a good servo saver so you won't destroy it on a hard impact.

I had very good luck with a 2413 in my JRX-S for almost a year before I sold the car and servo. It took tons of abuse WITHOUT a servo saver, which is the stock set-up in that car. At 118 OZ/in and metal gears it holds up well.

I will be buying another for my new Losi.
