mate id get one of these http://www.amainhobbies.com/product_...ervo-Horn-Blue

they are nice and chunky and with the two lock screws hold on tight to the servo and shouldn't strip out on you.

the mugen one you got honestly isnt that good, the plastic inserts just arnt up to off road racing.

also double check your end points, cause if your wheels are turing too far this will cause the servo horn strip out, even the plastic inserts should have lasted 30min

Get one of the OFNA servo horns with the inserts. I run one on my ace servo, and they are great

why dont you run the stock ACE servo horn that came with the servo

I have been using the ACE horn for over a year now on my 8T truggy and it still holds strong

ACE servos have a smaller spline than the standard 23 spline. the only horn that fits perfect is the ACE horn

use them. they are bullet proof
