You're in for a real treat. The car is amazing once you get the rear droop right and find the right tires for your track surface. I had a lot of trouble with the Tamiya servo saver also and finally went back to a large Kimbrough servo saver. I had to space the servo up to get the steering arms level. I installed the servo on it's side----low profile servo.
Use the hardest springs you can find up front and a Tamiya neon yellow or red in the rear. It will turn inside most Tamiya Minis. With a 23 pinion and a good Silvercan, you can give the FF03s fits. A 24 pinion is just too tight.
