I don't really want to spend more than a hundred for the steering servo. I would just like the best for club racing, nothing crazy!

Using 2 digital servos drains the receiver pack pretty quickly. I personally use a KO 2143 digital high speed servo and a KO 2174 analog high torque servo in my R40. These are the older KO servos and can probably be found for less than $150 for both.

I use a Futaba 9450 on throttle and KO 2174 for steering in my Magic G4.
I always want to have a very fast and quite torquey servo on the throttle because with a slow servo you get a delay from full throtle to brake and that's not very funny when you're traveling at 100 kph on the straight and a hairpin is coming and the servo takes about 6 meters to engage the brakes
On the steering a super duper high speed is not very important in my meaning, a slower servo makes the car more predictable

I use the servos that came with the XS3. Works great.

Default KO Propo

I use KO Propo 2344 servos for both steering and throttle.
So does Josh Cyrul.
