Hi Guys,
Thought you might be interested,
My friend has a mini and decided to race it off-road.
He transplanted the TL-01B Arms onto his car and well...
here's the result

What kind of Servo Saver do you guys use on your Mini? I have the M03 and I bought a Kimbrough Large servo saver. It seems to be hitting the servo post thus im not getting too much steering.

Also what is a good baseline setting for steering % on my transmitter? 75% good enough?

I have not ran the mini at the track at all.

I am using the same servo saver, You have to mount it on the inner holes and cut off part of the servo saver that hits the chasis to free up more room for the movement.

Thanks Larry. I did use the inner holes (middle ones).

What did you use to cut/trim the excess piece? Also is 75% goo enough for steering throw?

I have a cutter I used for cutting rails on a model railroad that worked well,

A good wire cutter should work to cut through the plastic

Larry, did you trim both sides of the srvo saver? Or just the part that is hitting? Just want to make sure I didn't mess up the balance of the thing if any.
