Dude what car you running and does it have a servo saver?

Savox do the job if your budget can stretch, you will never need another servo..

But Try this one, I had one in my Cougar before I brought a Savox.

With your budget I would recommend staying away from a savox, even 2nd hand, especially the power hungry ones 1257/1258 as you will need to factor into the cost a ubec, another 10 at least. Take a look at the bluebird bms616dmg from hobby king. Nice and fast full metal geared servo, delivered from the uk warehouse for 20. I ran one for a few months with a glued up servo saver, no problems at all.

Right now im liking the look of the Alturn High Performance High Speed Servo (10.8kg/0.09sec), will I need a UBEC for that, right now the ESC im running is a Leopard 60A v2.0 ESC. Tbh i never even knew that the ubecs existed so I have no idea about using one.

The leopard has a 5v 2a bec. Whatever servo you get it will not run at its full speed and torque. I've used alturn and powerhd in the past, I don't believe their published specs. The 0.09s alturn was considerably slower than the 0.12 bluebird.

Go for the bluebird and pick up a 6v 5a ubec from hobby king

ran my associated servo in my car for 6 months on a leopard speedo with no drop off on performance.
