Are the ones your using from HB? The short ones from Top are what i have and they don't fit right. Ended up using the ones from previous TA05MS. They fit fine its just that they only use 2 screws to mount the servo and that they're blue.

That blue slows your car down two tenths on a lap.

With or without the plastic battery tray?

In my black edition (no battery tray) I know up to and including the orion 3800, intellect/trinity 3800 and core 3250 fit no problem

You need to mount the alu ones, ref. 61335a and 61335b, for KO the part "a" you need to mount at rear, (near from eletrocnics), and for Futaba-Sanwa the same part is mount at forward, of the servo.

Greetings, Luis C.
