Default upright servo mount???

does anyone know where I can pick up a upright servo/battery bracket. I currenty am running a 2s 2200mah lipo on the rear axle. I weight my front wheels to hell and back to compinsate for the rear weight. I just built a slingshot rig last night and tested today and its a bit flippyI want to mount my lipo up front again but need the upright servo bracket.
HELP:-(

For what axle?

Are you wanting the steering servo to be on it's side (the longest end running perpendicular to the axle)??

He'd got a much lower COG if the battery were lower.

If it were me, I'd find a smaller lipo. You can get a 3S Zippy lipo for ~$20....which would probably be cheaper than a new servo mount.

Thats funny...I was just going to look for some upright servo mount info...

Since I just bought new 3s's, I'm not interested in buying more.

Anyone have more info or some pics to go by?
