Default Steering servo for TC4?

Anyone know offhand what aftermarket steering servos will fit the stock mounts on a TC4? I got a RTR one off a buddy for cheap and am just looking to have some fun with it, the stock steering servo is toast and I'd rather have a better one in there.

None of my 1/8th or 1/10th scale servos fit. I tried one out of my 1/12th scale but it was too small.

Thanks.

Basically any servo with .10sec or lower ! My recommendation would be: $80 Futaba S9402(analog) or $140 jr z9100s(digital).......

Those fit the stock servo mounts for sure? Not really worried too much about the cost of it. Just want to make sure it fits.

Yes they fit ! I have five tc4's (two ft and three rtr's), and they all have the futaba S9402 in them with no spacers between servo and mounts ! You will need the appropriate F servo arm though( part#9180)....

I forgot, I don't have the jr z9100s in any of my tc4's , but I am confident that they will also fit with a thin spacer or no spacer, and a J servo arm(#9180)......

Any "standard" size servo should fit, but you might want to consider a "low profile" one like the Spektrum S6070 or Futaba S9551. It will give you more room down in the tub to fit the receiver & ESC. (I don't think the Hitec HS-77xx low profile one will fit, since it's a bit longer than the other brands.)
