Default steering servo saver adjustment?

I have a hyper 7 buggy. It seems that the servo saver is moving too easy. I am new to running on a track so when I hit the pipes that out line the track it will activate my saver. Which it should but sometimes it sticks and I have to move my radio's wheel back and forth the get steering again. So I am thinking it needs the tension adjusted. Or is there something else that I need to adjust?

the manual should have the exact amount you need to have the knob cranked down, but its generally half way down on the adjuster.

too loose you get tons of slop, too tight you run the risk of stripping you servo.

if you have a metal or titanium gear servo you can tighten it down more. YMMV

I run a 7955TG. Servo saver? I crank it down until it is almost coil bound. I have an aluminum servo arm that will bend or break to "save" my servo. (Do NOT try that with other servos... it would be an expensive mistake.)
