A good low-profile servo?

I recently picked up a Yokomo SD with the Rayspeed conversion, so the servo is now mounted with the chassis, instead of perpendicular with the stock one. Anyways, space is a premium, and I can't seem to fit everything with a normal-sized servo. So I was looking to get a low-profile one. Any recommendations on a decent servo that is also affordable? (I already run a KO2123 btw)
I found this one and it's pretty cheap: http://servocity.com/html/hs-77bb_low_profile.html
Any comments would help, thanks.

That has 1 metal and 4 plastic gears, say bye-bye to those in the right collission. I suggest the Futaba S9550, I use one in my XXXS and never had a problem with it. They are pretty affordable as well, you can propably find one for around $80, a lot less than other high-end digital servos.

Is the Hitec one really going to break that easily? I mean, there is a servo saver on the car. Or no go?

Hi,

You'll be alot better off with the 9550 servo. I have tried the HiTec servo and was not happy with it.

Don't go Hitec...

Haven't tried any of Fruitaba's stuff yet but I hear good things about it....

They make nice looking chargers too
