I am running the 1267MG in my sc10, I am guessing that is overkill in a touring car?

That's why I had it, plopped it in the sc10 because it was there.

1251-MG would be the servo I'd use. I had one in my RCGT car for a bit and it worked great.

Savox low profile is a nice TC servo.

My 2 TC's both run savox, one is a 1257, the other the low profile 1251. They are both excellent, but I don't really notice the difference so I'd suggest the 1251 would be a better call for less weight.

Mate of mine also runs a 1257, also works great.

I don't think I'd bother with anything but savox now, they've been that good for me.

I use the Futaba BLS451 for all my 1/10 steering......and throttle on nitro.
Have more than a half dozen of 'em.

Great performance, in my opinion.

I'm running Savox 1251 LP in both my cars now, steering in the electric, steering and throttle in my nitro, can't fault them at all.
