$40-$70 total???????
For a radio system and two high torque servos??????
Not gonna happen...
For that much money yo may get a new, replacement antenna and 1 decent steering servo but not a whole system....

A very, very basic radio system (no better than what you have now) will run $50. One worth swapping to will run $100 - $150. A decent metal gear high torque servo is going to start at around $40/each. That's going to be a minimum of $130 and the only improvement you'll have is high torque servos and even those won't be the strongest or fastest servos.
You're going to have to find more money if you want to do everything that you said.

Oh, and no, the stock servos that come with most systems are not much, if any, better than what's in the truck now.
