1/8th cars use standard sized servos so they should fit quite happily in a touring car.
You do find that the low-profile servos (from Futaba, KO or Sanwa) are quite popular in touring but that isn't because standard servos are too big, it's just that the low-profile servos give you a bit more flexibility with the electronics layout and weight distribution.
Good specs for a servo are 0.1s speed and 6kg torque.
The extra torque of an 1/8th servo will not damage the car (assuming you set the end points correctly).
