No, it hasn't. I have been lookin for it. What method did you choose? If it was UPS ground, they take a long time is seems in my neck of the woods. I just use USPS, doesnt matter what it is.. Priority or Parcel Post, its there in 5 days.

Ill let ya know.

I'm installing a Futaba 9650 in my DB12R. The head of the small self-tapping screw that comes with the 9650 for mounting the servo saver does not fit into the recess on the Kimbrough servo saver that's meant to accept it. Where can I get a screw that will fit?

That was a problem that I had too. I was lucky to have someone in the pits who had it.

What i did on my 9602 was chuck the screw up in my lathe and cut the head diameter down. You can also use a bench grinder to do this. It is a pain but you only need to do it once. I believe it is a 2.5mm screw

Use the screw that holds the endbell on a motor it fits fine.

I am actually pretty sure it is 2mm, but get you a socket cap screw, it is like a miniture screw like the one that holds your motor down. They fit like a glove in there. Fastenal or Grainger has got what you need, The fastenal by me doesn't even charge me when I just need one screw.

You are correct mike and jason. I just measured the screw and the screws on an endbell. Both are 2mm.

My reccomendation would be wider lanes! On our 60' by 60' track I use a minimum of 8' lanes with 10' preferred. Even that can get quite crowded with 8 1/12th scale cars zipping around.
