Trouble is I can't get my servo (Sanwa SRG-BLS v2) further in towards the centre of the car no matter what I try shimming etc. Anyone else have the same/similar issue? I'm thinking I'll need to try a different servo with a shallower gear case?
Yes me 2. I adjusted the servo more inward, but beware too much inward the servo horn will rub the radio plate. From what I saw the ball link will hit the rx box too, so you don't have to worry about it.
Mine can adjust the throttle EPA about 80%, brake about 25% (should be 5% more to go), it good enough.

I got it sorted. There are 2 options. One is a servo horn without the bend in like the serpent one and the other was extend the link rod. Trouble is by extending the link rod I felt that I was loosing some of the pull on the brakes but to be honest it seems ok.

Seems like low profile servos are the only option.
Any comment from the sponsored driver

You could probably run a standard size in the steering position. but it's going to be tight.

Yep. standard will fit in the steering servo slot but not throttle. Low profile is pretty much the standard for touring car I believe. Mind you if you look at Greiners car it looks like he's running one of the new AME standard size servos on the steering. I'll be sticking with my Sanwa low profiles as it's a nice neat package and it is perfectly balanced L/R.

I think your pricing is wrong because it is not 25% off storewide like your site suggests, unless I have misread it?

I use the sanwa ers 971 on steering and throttle. Very good especially at the price. Michael Salven uses the same.

I have those in my 747 Julius, for the 748 I went for the BLS v2's. So far I can't tell the difference so it does prove that the ERS series are excellent servos for the money! Only real difference on paper is that the ERS servos don't support SSR mode (but they work in SHR mode fine).

Morganti also uses the ERS-971 servos.

Does anyone know a Sanwa receiver model that fits inside of the receiver box. It seems like Serpent goofed and made it too small for most receivers.

Most of recent airtronics(sanwa) fit. What do u use? Even 977 receiver box is tight fit but it accommodates most of them.

The sanwa 451, 471 and 472 receivers all fit in the radio box. There seems to be more space in the 748's radio box than my 977!
