    Right side. Closest to the receiver box
    Didn't even think to mount it on the left!

    ERBE, right side:


    Summit, left side:


    No particular reasons of importance. Summit already had two servos on the right, so I evened out the number if not the weight. Also, Hitec servos have a long wire, so instead of bunching it up in the Rx box, I ran it from the side farther from the Rx box. You may consider trying to place the servo so as to achieve the best right/left weight distribution. It never mattered a whole lot to me.

    Went with the right side as it's closer to the receiver box. Already have a lot of cables passing under the motor for ESC, BEC, fan, and sensors.

    I put mine on the right because Im putting a Tekno RX box that was made to go over the empty servo hole on the left for the REVO and it makes a shorter and cleaner run for the ESC wires to the RX without having to run them under the motor as well as not having to run the servo wires under the motor mount pivot. Box is coming in tomorrow so Ill post up pics once its installed. This is on the Kershaw chassis so the servo mounts are pretty much the same as the REVO 3.3. May take a little modding to get the box on the ERBE stock chassis.

    Since your putting this on a E-Revo it requires no mod's right? Just bolt on?

    Its going on a Kershaw chassis the stock chassis doesnt apply. I would expect it to require a little bit of modification going on the stock chassis as the servo mounts between the ERBE and the REVO 3.3 are just a little different. On a stock chassis I used the blank cover from a REVO 3.3 to cover the empty hole and it required enlarging the holes on the plate a bit to get it the screws to line up.

    Im not expecting any modification on the Kershaw chassis as the servo mounting holes are pretty much a dead ringer for the REVO 3.3. Once I have the RX box in hand I can tell you for certain what would need to be done to mount it on a stock ERBE chassis if anything is needed.

    Run mine on the left, that just happened to be the side closest to me on the work bench when I mounted it. I think with the weight of this car it makes no difference. As much as I've jumped mine, it flies straight and level.
    Who needs brakes!!!!

    Here's a pic of the underside with cover plate. As said in post #10...I run all mine on the right, closer to the RX.

    looks great thanks

    I also dont think that picking left or right makes a different as far as weight distribution goes...!

    I run mine on the left side because i had planed on running my receiver and servo off of a battery pack and was going to keep the pack on the right side.

    Here is mine on the right. Like I said int he earlier post the idea was to get all the wiring down one side. Well only the servo is on the right. I think Im going to run it under the top plate though after looking at this pic its the only wire beaming out at you. All the other wires are run under the top plate of this Kershaw chassis and down the middle and wire ties holding the harness to the bottom plate support.

    I installed the Tekno RX box on the left where the left servo was and Im running a switch in it because Im running a JRZ9100HVT servo and didnt want to use an external BEC for the 7.4V so I made a lead out of a 2s balancing extension and took the male end off and put a servo connector on it. Pic shows 5s installed, 3s on the right and 2s on the left.

    I have mine on the left (driver side). The only reason was b/c i had excess wire on my 7954 and no space left in the receiver box.
    Its All relative to your perspective.

    Yep Tekin T8 2250kV truggy motor with a Yeah Racing dual tornado fan heatink. Those fans flat move some air. They make a bit of noise too but holy smokes the volume of air they move is unreal. Turn them on and hold you hand at the front or rear of the truck over the shocks and you can feel the air moving out from under the top plate at a pretty good clip. I was impressed!

    http://www.yeahracing.com/catalog/ya...er-p-3052.html

    Kershaw is actually selling them but this site shows the specs that they just dont. Kershaw site just shows a picture and the can size but I checked up on it at the link above and snagged one.
    Edit:
    The installation of the single servo enabled me to put the RX box up front with lots of room in it to spare to keep the wiring in a tight package and very little exposed. Without the RX box where the old servo used to be I wouldn't have been able to install the heatsink on the T8 cleanly as I wouldnt have had sufficient clearance to get both the motor connections and the heatsink with the fans on.

    Please keep threads on-topic gentlemen. The topic for this one is installation side for single servos.
