200 in/oz is what I look at as minimum for a truggy. 150 is probably enough, for most truggies if it's a high quallity servo. For steering anyway.

For ultimate control and speed, I'd get a steering servo for a truggy with around 300oz of torque. Hitec makes some good servos with excellent warranties in this torque range. For throttle, that's one area where you don't need a ton of torque so I usually will go with a higher quality servo that I trust. I use futaba servos for throttle control. I've seen guys skimp on throttle servos only to have them burn out and leave the throttle wide open on their big money motors. For throttle servos, you'd want something with some speed, with around 100-200oz of torque with speed being the more important factor.
