If you want something good that's cheap, I just bought a Futaba S3305 and I'm loving it. It cost around $40, $35 through TowerHobbies. So far I'm extremely happy with it and it makes plenty of torque even for a heavy buggy such as mine.

I like the Associated ACE DS1015 or DS1313 work really well. (1313 would be the steering) I run (2) 1015 in my Losi 8ight and when I get my XRAY808 I will use them there as well. Otherwise, the Z9100S and Z9100T are great options too. Oh and the Cyclic JR one is cool too DS8717

there is no such thing as good and cheap in 1/8 scale servos. you should spend at least a $100 for steering and not less than $50 for throttle, unless its a losi, then you need a $100 throttle servo that needs to be set up perfectly
