Couple things.

What steering link are guys using to get the servo saver at 90 degrees? Stock one is too long.

Are guys happy with the build of the shocks with the Reflex Racing bladders?

Thanks

The stock one for me. The reflex bladders are too big and take too much finagling to get to fit. I prefer the stock ones.

Standard camber link. Stick with the stock bladders. I've been using the same bladders for over a year without any issues. The key that I've mentioned several times before is only tighten the cap down until you feel resistance. If you crank the cap down as tight as it will go you will ruin the bladders.

Too big? These ones?

I found them 10x easier to use than the stock Xray bladders, and if anything, they're a heck of a lot smaller.

I love them, personally.

I just built mine with a savox low profile servo and cut down the ends of the link and it ended up the perfect 90 degrees.
and i had some reflex bladders and used them and they fitted perfectly and shocks feel good.

Yes. They were not good for me.

I found the same. I think it depends a bit on what servo as the output shaft varies slightly from manufacturer to manufacturer.

I cut 1 or 2mm off each end of the link before fitting the rod ends

I used a shorter link in my box left over from an old Serpent. I am not sure how long it is, but it was a lot shorter than the stock link.

I like the Reflex bladders much better than the Xray bladders. Come by my room and I'll show you how to build the shock easily with them.

I have a question. I just got a 12 from a guy but has no servo saver. Can I just use one I had before or should I get the Xray servo saver? Just to be clear it has no servo saver arm.

You can use any servo saver, the Xray one is nice though.

Default Chassis nub

Hi,

I know a lot of drivers now stick down the servo or use the centre servo mount but Is there much benifit in cutting off the nub on the side of the chassis or will you not really notice much difference in the handling?

I dont think you will notice any difference in handling but the chassis nub will rub alot. I cut mine off as I use the centre servo mount and Im fuzzy lol

I cut mine off and the lack of rubbing seemed to help with the high speed sweepers.
