I have used those on all my monster trucks and 1/8 scale buggies and never had a problem with them. Very nice servo for the money.

be sure not to buy a servo that is just high speed, you also need it to be high torque. 125oz of torque or higher is sufficient

I have this one on my buggy:
Hitec 5925MG. 128oz with a .08 sec. Only problem is that its hard to find.

Check out the 5945MG (different gearing) .13sec/188oz in the RCU Marketplace:
