It all depends on what you want from the servo as to which one you should get. I run KO-propo RSXone servos for both my throttle and steering. These are high speed servos. Very nice aswell but a little on the pricey side at anywhere from $120ish on Ebay to $145 from Amainhobbies.com free shipping.

Basic things I would look for if you don't want to go that extreme is.
1) If you are using any newer radio you want a digital servo
2) Higher speed is helpful
3) Metal gears which most have now
4) Depending on what receiver pack you have (LiPo, LiFe, NiMH) make sure your servo can handle that voltage.

Check around at www.Amainhobbbies.com or www.Ashfordhobbies.com good prices and sometimes free shipping.

I would like to suggest you Savox SC-0251MG. It has a good reputation and a very good price too. I have a 645 on my MAXX and i want to change it out. The Savox servo also comes in a nice plastic box with some impressive mounting screws for the extra $05.01 during the 645 is worth it.
