if you are going to replace your steering servo ... get an HV capable servo .... if your throttle is not HV you should still run a voltage regulator or use a LiFe pack . i know a servo guy

I have ran high end Futaba and Sanwa servos with good results, only negative is the price. I feel that you pay for the brand name and not only for performance.
This season I tried something new, SRT servos! The are priced half or less of what a Sanwa or Futaba will cost you but with the same or better specs.
I have ran this servos on a high speed - big jump - harsh landnings and rough track conditions overall multiple times with no issues at all.
You can have a few spare servos for the same cost as it takes to outfit one car with Sanwa or futaba.
