Default Losi 8ight 1.0 buggy radio tray/ throttle linkage HELP!!!

Hey guys i have a brand new losi 8ight 1.0 buggy and i heard about the throttle servo problem they have. I would like to know what you guys think i should used to fix the problem. Should i put in a kingheadz radio tray stiffner on the 1.0 radio tray or should i used the losi 2.0 radio tray and the 2.0 throttle linkage so i wont have servo problems in the future?

There should be instuctions in the box to fix this problem. It should come with 2 rubber o-rings, install them as instuction instructs - i ran like this for 2 years and have not burned a servo. Also I use Hitec 7955 servos. I dont use a stiffner, dont make sense to me. The Losi is made to flex, so why stiffen it up.....

If you use the updated box 2.0 tray you will not need the kingshead stiffner, so the cheaper way out is the 2.0 radio tray

I am running the King Headz stiffner on the 1.0 tray with a 7955TG with no problems so far. What makes the 2.0 buggy tray better than the 1.0 tray? I know you need the 2.0 linkage. I can't really tell a difference between the two other than that. The bolt pattern is the same, so is it that it enables the servo to sit further away from the carb? I'm curious.....

The 2.0 tray has sections that are raised right where the servo sits to prevent servo failure and it moves the servo a little farther away from the engine to eliminate the strange harmonic issue.
