Default servo choice?

hey everyone, I think i am getting a CEN Racing Truggy and need a servo. what is a good servo to use for steering in this truggy? I have an 85oz/in Spektrum servo for throttle. what should i use. I wont have much money, so anywhere under $100 would be great. I fly planes and we have 6 Hitec (then) HS5955 MG, which is now he HS 7955, and they have 333 oz of torque, but I dont have $150 for a servo now.

Hobbico CS-170, Irun this in my truggy for steering http://www3.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...LXNRN6&P=K
Its the same servo as the Hitec 5955, just a different sticker on top.

Also your throttle/brake servo with only 85oz-in. will probably not be enough to slow your truck down very fast. I use the Hitec 5645mg with 164 oz-in and wish Ihad closer to 200 oz-in.

hitech hs7955tg is the servo of choice for buggy/truggy's, its what everyone is running and they are truly bullet proof!

the hitec 7955 is the way to go, its not 150, i picked mine up for 120. and i think you can find them even cheaper.

thanks for all the fast replies guys! like i said, i use the 5955 (7955 now) in planes and love them, but dont want to have to spend the money. I might try the servo with 85 oz torque on the throttle just to see if it will work. it is the Spektrum Z590. and we also use the hs 5645's and might be able to take one off a plane if needed.

i had that servo and i can tell you dont get it, it last 4 races and it was gone. for throttle hte hitect 645 is great, 35 bucks and it has 133 oz torque.
