I run the Serpent and the Kimbrough savers.

Although the Serpent got damaged on the weekend, the XRAY Composite Servo Saver - X-Stiff p/n 372503 is the replacement i've ordered.

No Saver. I run the yokomo alum servo arm, no issues.

I normally use the kit VBC plastic servo arm or the Yokomo servo arms for the BD7. If you want to run a servo saver, the Xray servo saver for the T4 '14 is really good as others have said.

Hope that helps!

+1, the R1 is a superior fan, even the 6V version.

Ok guys, thanks for your help. We are nearing the end as the car is now done but I have one question...

WIth the ORCA 17.5 it seems the motor shaft is sticking so far out its hitting the belt. Do I just need to use a bunch of spacers to space the motor back or what other option?

I've spaced my motor out for 2 reasons.
1 - so I don't have to run my pinion "upside down" and so that I can get to the grub screw from the bottom of the chassis.
2 - rather than add ballast, pushing the motor out a couple of mm has helped with the L-R weight distribution of the car. The lipos I have are a tad on the heavy side.

You could always cut the motor shaft if its too long.
