Tried running the balls on the servo side of the servo saver, but then the tierods interfere with the blocks. Went and got a set of AE tierods today that were a bit longer. Seems to be a better fit and will allow me to widen the front if I want to.

Yes. i am running the Hitec 225 (mighty mini), and had the same problem. I am going to install my pre-production/Prototype wide kit this week to see if the longer steering linkages work better (they are longer).
