it keeps the layers together at the edges, decreasing the chance of the layers separating from things like the plate hitting a pipe or nail.

Check to find the binding by removing the servo horn...

push and pull on the post of the servo saver. if you feel any binding, you will need to find out where it is.

It could be something like a bearing in the bell crank that didn't get seated right, or a ball cup that is getting hung up on the body (the lowest lip of the center part of the body made my steering "click" and freeked me out.


There are lots of potential areas that you could look to find a little binding.

Good luck.
