The "race roller" setup that comes on the car is very good and user friendly until you become adjusted to the car. After the car is broken in and you feel comfortable I would suggest using Mike Truhe's setup and go from there. Hope this helps and hope you enjoy the car!

Thanks for the comment, but I meant what is the most reliable servo saver setup to go with, sorry about the confusion.

The 2.0 spring is not only thicker wire but also has more coils closer together. I think most of the problem is the spring is coil binding and has no give. The best answer seems to be to run the 1.0 truggy spring (LOSA4407) on the buggy and truggy.

Alu servo saver and servo arms with looser preload than factory setting.

I personally think that there is nothing wrong with the plastic, but instead the spring is too strong. I compared my 2.0B spring with the 1.0T spring and it is slightly thicker and has an extra coil. The spring is way too stiff...So since I didn't have a 2.0 ally arm I used my 1.0 arm and plastic with the 1.0T spring and used the other other new bits to complete the servo saver. I can now race without worrying about the damn thing busting on me.

Are the 1.0 truggy spring stronger than the 1.0 buggy. Why they tell us to use the 1.0T in the 1.0 Buggy too?

The 1.0 buggy spring was on the weak side and if you tightened it up to the point that it should have worked it would coil bind and the saver wouldn't function. The 1.0 truggy spring is stiffer and works great in the buggy and truggy.

Is this all I need to convert to the 1.0t spring on the 2.0 buggy?

you might want to pick up the alum 2.0 top as well.
