theres no real need for an aluminium horn for the ace servos
their horns are bulletproof. ive never seen anyone strip one unless they hit a wall at full speed. And id rather strip a horn than a servo

The ACE servo horns are the same that come with the Assciated 1/8 scales. Been running them all season on my truggy, and same on my bro's buggy, no problems ever...

I probably agree with you, but when I got my buggy in a trade (missing a bunch of stuff but oh well) it was missing the servo insert in the arm so it was unusable and I had to buy them anyway, so I decided to just upgrade.

I did order the Futaba one last night

be careful with the futaba horn. everyone that i know using them have had there servo get the twitches up.
the little bit of slop on the horn wears out the servo really quick

I think I have read some people use a layer of plastic (from a store bag) before putting the arm on

I wish I checked up on the discussion before ordering though, I would have stayed plastic.. ah well.

Yep a peice of plastic I used a peice from a tire bag as it is thicker and takes the slop out with only 1 peice. if you use a store bag you may need to double it up as they are usually thin plastic
