Yep, It's old, but the basics are all there.

Sorry, I know this was covered in the b5 or b5m thread somewhere. I did try to search but didnt see anything on the Savox!

I was wanting to get a Savox 1251 low pro/short servo, am I gonna have to get down with the Dremel to get it in my B5m?

It should fit fine but keep the tools handy, its not going to last long. That's a great servo, just not for an offroad car w/o a servo saver. I just shipped another member 2 broken ones for free.

Thanks for the reply. Any low pro servo you'd recommend?

There are 3 off the top of my head. The best of the best is the KO RSX one10 (its going to set you back a few). Next the Futaba S9551 (or something like that), and the Spektrum 6070 seems to hold up well. I'm sure there are others that work fine too. I have a couple of the RSXs and one of the Futabas and I have no complaints.

Ya I bought that same one and when installing it noticed the servo mount directly contacts the leads coming out of the servo. In fact I think it interfered with the plastic mount in the car not just the aluminum part. Luckily I had a 1257 that fit great so I just swapped them from car to car. I'm not sure how much the bigger servo weighed.

Thanks again QDRHRSE for the 1251's!!

Buddy is running the savox low profile in his B5M. We trimmed the back cover of the servo so the lead could come out the back. Worked fine. The main problem is the servo horn. The steering link contacts the servo before you get full throw due to the input shaft not sticking out very far.

Lol I ordered and fitted a 1251 in mine. Oh well it'll teach me to be cheap !
The servo squeals too much to my liking in most positions. It's lacking oomph.
Touched the EPA to about 80% and removed the blue 1mm shim so it doesn't foul the servo body. I filed a bit the aluminium servo support to clear the wires... it fits but I'm pushing my luck with it. I had a 7954sh servo in it previously but didn't like the lag (0.15s/60 on 6.0v).
Pity I shortened the wires on it can't return it... anyway I'll keep the previous servo in the pit box ready to save the day when it'll break.

Yeah I guess with the b5m you're unsafe with low profile servos .
Is a KO RsX2 response overkill ? It's going at 0.06s 17.6kg under 7.4v which at this speed and power I wouldn't risk itr with the ESC bec and go direct to the battery.

Got my car down to 1502 grams with no pucks, FYI.. But like many have mention the car has just gotten to "edgy" I think is the right term.

Think I'm going to try and go back to a standard size pack.

Car was still dialed just a little to edgy or twitch for my liking.

The RSX response is pretty much the best servo you can buy. I've got one in my SC6. Bullet proof.

FYI for everybody else, the Futaba S9551 fit with no modification. I'll post a pic if I can.

Wow I run a savox 1251 with no problems at all. 1mm spacer behind servo and 1mm spacer behind ballstud. Doesnt have any issues other than the servo wire modification which isnt a big deal in my opinion.

I just did a video interview with Kelly Lunsford today, that I will be posting on the big rc hopefully later this week.

I have known kelly for about 25 years, and can tell you that his stuff is top shelf. Most of the other brands of titanium are cheaper grade material. Kelly has stuck with the best titanium out there.

His knowledge of the industry is just unreal. Literally one of the coolest dudes in rc, Can't wait to share the video, it's gonna be a long one too!
