I'll put up some pics later though.

some photos would be good, if you could please

Does anyone have some recommendations on 21.5 motors? I'll be using a SP cirtix spec speedo. I'm looking at the Revtech, D3, Thunder Power, or Ballistic. I'll be using it on a smaller carpet track.

You are correct, about $20 per pair.
571 and 572 is what you want.
Also available at Speedtechrc.com (combo tires and wheels packages are a good deal there when available).

Here are the photos, taken from my phone so not the best. I think if you can't afford to buy a low profile servo and lye if flat, this would be the next best thing.

Only real mod is to take the back off the servo, file a small piece out so you can move the wires round to the back.
