Tabushi the hitech servos work just use the alumunium arm that I think they come with and put the steering ball on the backside. space the servo forward so the horn is close to the front bulkhead.

I fitted mine with a bluebird Bms-621mg servo. The servo is the same size as any standard servo. ( futaba, hitec, etc..)

Here's what you do: in the kit there are several plastic spacers for the servos. Take the 2 thickest ones with 2 medium ones. Install on each side -- one thick + one medium and screw your steering servo in the mounts. Now install the ball end on the opposite side that the instructions indicate ( ie: ball end facing servo or rear of car instead of front of car).

It's a perfect fit and works very well.

The pictured solution above actually works better if you use an aluminium servo horn instead of the ones that come in the kit. Then the horn doesn't rub on the front bulkhead at it's thickest part.

I can't believe all the posts from people who have been given bad information regarding what servos fit the mongoose.

I have seen or heard of most brands being fitted to the 'goose without any issues whatsoever. For those that couldn't work out to turn the steering ball around to be on the back side of the servo horn, and then dremelled some material off the front bulkhead would never win a game of 'think outside the square' now would they.

It's pretty tight but there's enough room. What brand aluminum servo saver ? Is it the k-factory kit for the g4?
