Just don't run a servo saver. I haven't had a servo saver on it from day one. Most savers that mount on the servo and aren't integrated into the steering system will do just what you're describing. They're just too soft.

I use double sided Scotch brand tape on the carbon ribs between the cell slots. This tape is just as thin as normal Scotch tape but it has adhesive on both sides. This keeps the packs from shifting in the car. I then run a band of strapping tape around the normal slots to hold the pack in place.

If I need to change gear ratios I remove the strapping tape and pop the pack off the chassis. The scotch tape is good for 3-4 batt removals before you need to replace it. You can peel it off the classis and the pack and remove residue with motor spray.
how much wieght do you use by using this method

But the car would track difrent everytime i got it onto the straight for the next lap. I know its not my servo because i got fed up of the mi3 not tracking right and then went back to my mi2 with the same electrics and it was perfect.
I run the big OFNA one. It is alittle over-size, but it is strong and works great!

I run a monster servo (Airtronics 94360) and just the rigid arm.

If you car is not tracking straight check the following.

1. Are both of your steering hubs pivoting freely in the c-hubs?

2. Is there bind in any of your suspension arms? Everything should be free with no resistance at all.

2. Is your car tweaked properly on a balance beam type tweak station?

3. Is your droop equal left to right?

4. Are all your brearing and drive shafts free?

I dont really see the need for servo savers if you have a good racing servo. I havent stripped a servo gear since I was running a Traxxas Rustler up and down the street nearly 11 years ago.. never had a good servo strip a tooth in a TC.

I tried that, but I ended up breaking the ears off the servo and breaking the case.

No. I wanted to but I was too damn tired to drive that far in the morning. Poker at my house Friday night ended up being an all nighter. Didn't end up in bed until 4:30AM. Dogs woke me up at 9 and I couldn't get back to sleap. I went to Revelation last night w/ Donny.
