Default servo help

hey guys this is my first time building a roller buggy and im on a budget. just wondering what the best servo's are for steering/throttle on a losi 8ight that wont break the bank.
i will go to track 1-2 times a year but mainly bash.

also i will be buying from towerhobbies because i get small discount so if all possible it would be nice to find one from there.

I use Savox, Ace/Associated 1313/1015, and Futaba Brushless servos. Those are about the most reliable ones I've owned so I stick with them.

I use Hitec servos, never had a problem with them. But I too will be trying a Savox servo when I get my TLR 22. The price on them seems to be pretty good and I've heard that everyone who uses them loves them.

I'll be the 12th then...Savox 1256 for steering and 1258 for throttle/brake on a 2S LiFe battery. Great, reliable servos at an excellent price.
