I will get Brian from Ulitmate products to post some info on when and where you will be able to get some of these products. There were a number of cars with the servo spacer installed , that raced at the Best of the west this past weekend and everyone was very happy with how there cars performed.

That brace looks great. Did they go vertical down the back of the throttle servo as well? This will give you max strength to prevent twisting.
Good stuff.

I just ordered 5 bags from a-main hobbies....hurry before they are out!

Also;
Always run some kind of shock boots.
Make sure the boots are not ripped....check'm often.
Make sure when building the shocks there is zero rebound...(no pressure)

These few things helped my shocks alot.

I also think a carbon fiber frame stiffner would also be perfect. One that is similar to the one above, but curves down, vertical with the servo for added stiffness, and heat protection from the motor. Plus it would look cool

Ive got a gallon through mine.. I set up the throttle the right way, and never had a problem. Flex doesnt kill servo motors.

Default steering servo horn inserts.

Has anyone else had problems with steering servo horn inserts stripping out? I setup the servo saver as directed in the manual, am runnin a JR 9000t, with spacers and rubber mounts with proper epa setup all the way through the travel of the suspension. I've stripped two inserts and had to drop out of two mains because of it. The steering feels smooth as silk with no binding and my horn screws had not loosened up at all to cause it. Any thoughts or suggestions would be greatly appreciated. As far as throttle, I cut my spring way down and added a return spring to help pull the slide back rather than making the throttle servo hold it there. So it has no compression on the return spring until just when you start to apply brakes.

Are you stripping both throttle and steering inserts ? I`ve seen a few guy stripping the steering insert and put a metal servo horn in place and seemed to be fine .

I'm only stripping the steering, throttle has worked flawlessly. I've run about 2 and a half gallons through it, so I'm confident of the throttle setup.

I`d put a metal horn or a servo saver as a horn on the servo .

manual is wrong, there setting is way to tight for the servo saver. I have mine set to 3 threads up from the bottom wich is still fairly snug but I run the Hitec 5955 servo wich is BAD @$$
