Hi guys, I am wondering which servo horn you are running on your Wildfires? I am using a Racer's Edge servo horn and have my Ackermann on the rear most hole on the knuckle and am unable to obtain lock to lock throw. I want to be able to have the knuckle stops touch the C hubs and then dial down my dual rate if necessary.

When swapping to the stock servo horn, I am able to obtain full throw in both directions, but would prefer an aluminum option.

Thanks for your help!

I wouldnt put a aluminum servo horn on your car. If you touch anything its gonna snap parts. Go with a kimbro servo saver that will keep the car tracking straight and give you alot of protection on your arms, caster blocks and etc

I run the kit servo horn and i think the soft arms help to save parts on impacts because i've had some hard impacts and zero breaks

I can't recall ever running a servo saver on any of my touring cars. I have a black Kimbro servo saver, but I am more interested in other servo horns that will work with the car besides stock.

I think they were referring to a VBC driver that was entered into a big race recently but didn't make it. I'm not positive though.

Are the CSO shocks known to be any good? Since they are shorter, are they larger in diameter than the stock VBC shocks?

The quality of the shocks seems pretty good. They come with aluminum bodies and 3 different sets of pistons. They build just like the t4 shocks. They are slightly larger then the VBC shocks but are alot shorter.

I'm considering installing a servo saver on my vbc wildfire. Can anyone suggest a good one? I don't want to feel ANY slop in my steering.

Chris I run the xray stiff one. It's probably one of the better ones.
