I'd be using the more powerfull servo for the steering to take care of the extra forces the front has exerted on it duing cornering.
The other servo can take care of the throttle and braking duties for the moment.

Powerful one definately for steering. The throttle servo doesn't need to be that strong. Steering needs more strength. Cheers

the best setup is digital all round with metal gears for your steering(be careful having metal gears for your throttle as I have seen people have issues with Rx interference), as your steering servos get the most workout its good to have power and for the servo to be fast, I use futaba S3050 for steering and S3151 for throttle and they work a treat and are both under $50.
cheers
