Anyone else have clearance issues with the servo link on your servo case?

I've tried a shorty airtronics and a full size spektrum servo -- they both rub the servo link on the case.

Have you tried the two different thickness spacers that come in the kit, to move the servo forward a bit?

remove the washer under the stud and put an oring on the stud on the servo arm. this keeps the arm flatter and less likely to run

Probably going to be the 1.7's beings the 1.6's give the shock more pack than a 1.4 3 hole.

Be careful not to get the servo to bell crank drag link in a bind though (because of it's angle)...untamed kitty's idea may get you in the ball park though

I'm already not running the stud on the arm. I think the oring will help, but its still tight.

There has to be something going on here? I saw other folks post they were having issues. Some folks are shaving the horn a bit, others are spacing out the horn to move it away from the servo. But I think we are missing something.

my savox is definitely tight but without spacer it fits - if the arm were to go full throw there may be rubbing but since it doesn't it works well.

Decided to live life on the edge and try the Savox 1251.

Had to do a few things:

1. Remove servo arm ballstud spacer.
2. Remove grommet from servo lead/case. I used a dab of silicone to fill in.
3. Position servo slightly to the left of the car so as to leave a slight gap in the right side mount to clear the servo lead. No case mod/cutting was required. No pinching here, its "just" enough to let the lead come out at 90 Deg.
4. Used one very thin rotor shim to move the arm very slightly off the servo output spline. Under the horn/on top of output spline.
5. Slight shaving on the servo side bottomish side steering link to clear the case. Does not touch at all under full lock.

YMMV.

The D413 I got had no teeth on the spur gear.

LoL is right!

Mine was kind of a chuckle when I went to install it. The only issue is I don't have another ball stud to replace it with. I called AE and they told me I needed to fax them a copy of my receipt and a picture of the issue.....geez....

I did that yesterday and haven't heard anything back.
