Built last night but having problems with the servo saver. With a tiny bit of force it pops of that's with all 4 metallic rings on. If use a Kimbrough will the smaller size make any negative impact?

SOunds like you've done something wrong, I've never had an issue with any of the Xray savers

Yea, that sounds like you missed installing the small piece that goes on the front of the saver to hold it all together. Did you have any extra pieces?

I've used the Kimbrough black saver in the past with no issues though.

Yeh think I've been silly just looking at some pictures at work and it looks that way. Will sort it later.

Impressed with the kit overall though

On a more serious note: the picture I've posted is of the X12 2015, we'll get the X12 2016 in stock in a few days.
We're offering a free body with it but we really want to test it out and see how the new servo mount affects driving and if the pod plate & center shock gives it the refinements it needs.

The cardboard sleeving they've used is from the '15 model, so the outer box doesn't look any different.

The links are moved out 1mm on the main chassis and pod plate, so it is a slightly altered piece.
