there is no fix. to have your servo properly installed it will hit the body.

i talked with adam drake , but he said there is no way to fix that unless you put strain on the servo because the arm will be at an extreme angle

I wasnt sure if it was sopposed to so bad...lol it actually lifts the body when it does.....lol thanks losi racer for the info. It doesnt look like it will hurt anything, except for scratching the body. I may try to change the cap head screw to a button head with a lower profile one since that is whats hitting first...

Won't it strain the servo, having to push the linkage against the body?

It shouldnt strain it that much since the body moves easily but I just cut a spot out on the body where it was scracthing it now it hits nothing,,,,not a big deal.
