Depends on your price range but I just bought a KO Propo 2173 that's highly recommended around here.

Check the classified forum, there are usually good quality servos for a good price.

I think Baker runs an Airtronics 94357, high torque/speed cost is approx $110.

The 94357 (hi torque) and 94358 (hi speed) servos from Airtonics are popular choices, as well as the JR 8417 digital servos. You're looking at big bucks for either of those.

Our LHS doesn't carry KO, but the KO servos (and all their electronics for that matter) seem to be recognized as some of the best stuff in the business.

I use the Futaba 9550 and I'm now using the Hitec 5925. I like the new Hitec because of the .08 speed and the moster torque of over 130oz plus. Both servos run about 100 bucks but good digital servos with big speed and torque do.

Buy the best you can afford - it'll give better performance AND can be carried to the next car....

I suggest the Futaba S3050.

50$ @ Tower.

2 features, that I believe suits a buggy: Metal gears and digital, means way better holding power. Speed: 0,16 @ 4,8 volt. The torque seems to be good too. And the Futaba quality is outstanding.
