Default SAVOX SERVOS NO FIT

I need some HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!I just bought a pair of savox 0236 servos for a dual steering setup on a Rampage MT V3. Obviously they don't fit. I was trying to grind down the stock mounts but it seems like the servos still won't be able to fit. If I grind them down to the point where the servo fits there will be nothing left to screw to. Is anyone else using the Savox servos....if so what did you do to make them fit.....and could you please include some photos......thanks!

i think the savox is the same size as hitecs which can be made to fit fine, you have to dremel the mounts and re-drill one of them, it's one of the first upgrades people do, i don't have any pics of my old set up but sure a few owners on here do

I dremeled both of the mounts down to about 1/8" . The servos are still to wide and the new holes that would have to be drilled are outside of the mount.

the rampage GWS servos are bigger than 5755 so the 5755/65 are not a direct fit either...i didn't know the savox was that much bigger
