I have to think they would be killer motor in the E4 for fit and maximum motor movement. That small end looks great for fitament in an E4. Black in color don't hurt either as I like black anodize.

I have the Yeah Racing alum servo mounts. They are only 7 bucks at my buddies shop at normal price. Tought to beat and they work perfectly on the E4. Almost look like factory and if i polished them they would look factory.

I know but even if I don't cre for a company I have to give credit when due and I think this time it is deserved. It is a great idea thats for sure.
I have ran worse and it is in my car in the picture. To me that is far worse.

Do you have access to stuff called Shoe Goo or Goop. You can put that on the servo and mount it on the chassis. WHen it dries it will hold your servo in place but allows it to removed later without damaging anything.

The diff rings are not flat from the factory. Remove them and wet sand them with 300 grit sand paper. They will be really shiney and smooth. Makes the diff really smooth.

Get some wet dry 600 grit sand paper and use the short diff half to ensure the drive rings are flat. sand in a figure eight and do both sides of both rings. This will ensure the diff balls have a consistent surface and makes for a much smother diff. Also it doesn't have to be so tight as before the rings were smooth. there is a vid somewhere of Jiles Groescamp rebuilding a 416 diff. You might want to check it out.

Wyd,did you put spacers under the ball on the rear turnbuckle at the bulkhead side??
If not and you use the middle mount on the bearing holder on the rear the upper arms could bind on it.
This was with my car and that also solved my car breaking out at full throttle comming out of a corner.

cheers Roy
