Most high torque servos will fit, just make sure you don't get a 1/8 or 1/4 scale servo because they won't. For a rally 4-Tec, I think you might be better off with a MG servo, but choose one more for speed than torque. For example the HiTec HS645MG & HS-625MG. They both have more torque than the stock servo, but the 625 is faster & that will probably be more noticeable in a 4-Tec as opposed to a Stampede or something. You can get either of those at Tower for about $40. I bought a FMA PS705MBB (https://www.fmadirect.com/site/Detail.htm?item=1407§ion=8) for my Rustler & they have a PS500MBB (https://www.fmadirect.com/site/Detail.htm?item=1406§ion=8) with less torque but more speed, both for $28.95 + shipping. If you have a preference for other brands or your LHS carries other brands, JR, Airtronics, Futaba & others make good MG servos too. You'll need a stronger servo saver to go with it. I'd use a Kimbrough #124 (http://www2.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin/wti0001p?&I=LXS361&P=ML).
You could just get a new set of gears for the servo you have, but I'd rather get a MG servo & not have to worry about it happening again.

I've dropped the Traxxas 2055 servo for the T/E-Maxx in everything but the Bandit (I had a couple Futaba 3003's laying around). Those should be around $28-$30 at your LHS and will work with any servo saver made for use with Futaba servos, I also recomend Kimbrough, I've blown up a few Traxxas ones on my off roaders lately.

You should be able to find a 2055 on eBay for $15-$20 shipped.
Search results for "2055 servo" (http://search.ebay.com/2055-servo_W0QQsokeywordredirectZ1QQfromZR8)
But, if you don't mind spending the cash, the 625MG/#124 combo that razer recommended would be a great choice.
