Is it necessary to drill holes in the body for ventilation? I installed a tekin rx8 gen2 and don't want it to overheat, but don't want to drill holes in a new body if I don't have to.
Thanks

Hello. Im such a newbie! Yes I am referring to the servo saver build. So I can use alcohol? Alcohol I have laying around. Does that motor degreaser spray work better? Or will alcohol do just fine? I put building it on hold for now until I am sure what I can use as a replacement for the motor spray. Any other tips or suggestions with the rest of the build? Can I use Carborator cleaner or throttle body/intake cleaner thats used for normal 1:1 cars? Thanks!

I run mine very tight no problems

What's the benefit of running the servo saver really tight when you have a high end servo? I run High Voltage servos in mine and I've never heard of this. Thanks

Anything that will clean residue from metal will be sufficient.

They just want the threads to be clean of debris and grime because you are going to loc-tite it.

Something like rubbing alcohol and a microfiber cloth would be just fine. I'm sure carb cleaner would work too.

The benefit of a tight servo saver is more precise steering inputs, more of the time. With the saver loosened up, you may notice the front wheels not holding a steady angle under heavy cornering loads. This happens to me when I bring my e-buggy inside onto high-bite clay.
