Default which one is the best servo saver

I have a tamiya MRE and a mini cooper. The std tamiya servo saver on these cars are kind of weak. There is too much flex when making quick turns. I am thinking about going direct but I am afraid of damaging my $100 servo.

Anyone has any suggestion on a more heavy duty servo saver? I am looking at Kimbrough 124 for gas cars, ofna heavy duty with metal insert.

Thanks in advance.

Kimborough is the best, they have multiple sizes to best fit all scales.

Very good, never had a problem, they last a long time (years) aswell.

If you want the tamiya ones in black, the part number is #51000. Those are the ones I use on my futaba s9550 and on my KO PDS-2413.

The Mini's (and TL-01's) saver doubles as the mounting points for the tie-rods, so the high-torque tamiya servo saver can't do its job (the tamiya saver in these is longer than the "standard" saver). I don't know of any better replacement of that part. I'm sure one of the guys who own a Mini could come up and say what tricks they've done to stiffen it...

For the Tamiya touring cars I use the Kimbrough Servo Saver Mid-Size Without Holes (part no. 200). Much stiffer than the original saver, and the only reason why I get the no-hole saver is because the version sold with holes won't fit Tamiya's ball studs (the holes aren't big enough, and enlarging them would only crack the saver). Just my 2 cents...

BTW, does the MRE come with the #51000 servo saver (the black Tamiya one)?
