The servo saver is a very good idea on this car ...but hey it's in the box so no worries

The arm itself is not really a standard thing, since the ball threads straight into it instead of through it like normal. Most likely you will have to use the standard plastic ones until an aftermarket is found. Mine fits on nice and snug and works real well, i'm not worried about finding an upgrade.

About the bumper i use 2 longer screws on the sides and it stays on a lot better.

Im curently running the solid one and I have not had any problems with the servo yet(10 Packs).

I see this being more of a problem on carpet then asphalt

I KNOW.. i never broke a servo in the old car.. this one, just likes the Saver. If you look how short the link is from the servo horn, to the bellcrank.. it is much shorter, and i assume has less give on impact.. my only theory.

Well, I found a way to make weight with the car using the Carbon LiPo, and keep pretty much all the weight under the battery. Unfortunately, it's not terribly cheap ($60), so I'm guessing most people would rather wait for a weighted tray.

Basically, I lined the entire LiPo tray with flat tungsten weights, and then put another strip of them down the center of the tray that go into the recessed part of the battery. This raised it up slightly closer to the topdeck (1/16"), but it still clears everything just fine. I trimmed about 1/16" off the foam spacers so it wasn't too snug. The end result was 7oz of weight added into the LiPo tray, which brings the car very close to 51oz with foams, using a Novak GTB. There's plenty of room in the groove on top of the battery to add up to 6 more of the tungsten weights, which at .5oz each, gives you plenty of flexibility for making weight. You can also change the weight bias toward the front or rear this way, but only slightly.

If anybody cares, I'll add pictures later. I have a feeling the tungsten weights can be had for much cheaper, but I couldn't find another source.
