A lot of people run the traxxas 2075 because it is waterproof and a big upgrade compared to the stock one.

I'm using a Traxxas 2075 as well.. Seems to work fine.  Saw some reports of a new waterproof servos from Hobby King..  They might be good as well.  I think retail price for the 2075 is a bit much for what it is.

I'd rather spend the money on one good servo and be done with it  I have used these which are rebadged Hitec servos. Never had one die on me. I have had countless Traxxas servos die on me even with proper linkage and end point adjustment. You can tighten up your steeering servo saver and add a metal servo arm  with no worries of faliure either. It's a night and day difference in steering.

Another great option
