Default Best servos (need help quick)

What are the absolute best servos that you can get for a truggy. Steering and throttle. I will take in account what the warranty is but im not worried about the price. Thanks in advance for the replies.

JR. make great servos too with very similar performance. But are a little more money..

JR Z9100S (180oz. torque, @ .06 transit speed) $114.95 (for Thr/Brakes)
JR Z9100T (370oz. torque, @ .15 transit speed) $114.95 (for Steering)

IMO the best servos period. 3 Year Warranty if needed...

Have Fun...Burn Nitro...

+1 on those as well. Best support I have ever dealt with. I sent JR a 9000 that quit working. In the letter I said I bought it from a racer during a race. Had no reciept and they sent me a brand new 9100. These guys rule. I bought the 5955tg before I recieved the 9100. The 5955 has been awesome and hitec is a good brand. JR is as well. Either of these servos will get the job done.

+1 here the JR9100's are the best servos on the market imho.
I ran the older 9000t(steering) and 9000s(brake) in my Jammin CRT for 2 years and never had a servo problem.

Today I run 9100s in both steering and brake for my 8ight
