Default Servo brass bushes. Do you need the bushes?

I run a losi and the servo tray uses 4/40 screws to hold the servos in place.
I also run Hitec servos and the brass bushes that come with the servos arn't big enough for the 4/40 screws.
i have been running some bigger ones that came with my ACE servos but i've been using them so long now that they are bent out of shape

so my question is do you need to use the bushing with the servos?
or can you just use the rubber and a washer on top?

I use them from what I understand is that they prevent you from
over titting and making it so that the rubber grommet is not able
to move and do it's job of isolating the servo

i'd like to use them but the ones that come with the hitec are useless
nothing fits through them, and you cant buy them on their own they only come with servos

I use them when I can but your 100% right the ones that come with Hitec servos are pretty useless because they dont fit any of the screws most if not all cars use to attach the servos to the tray.

They are nice but not necessary. Its far more important to use the rubber pieces. Just use some caution when installing the screws not to over tighten them. I usually tighten the screws until the rubber compresses slightly and then stop. You want the servo to be tight enough to work properly without being so tight the ears or case would break if you were to take a serious hit.

I use them & recomend them but I have a lot or unused JR servos that I steal them from for my Hitecs.I do have cars that I havent used them in & had no problems,just dont tighten them down too tight.

I dont understand why Hitec still come with the small dia airplane wood screws. All the people I know that work at Hitec drive cars not balsa planes,Its not like they dont know whats up.
