Default 8ight 1.0 servo saver spring

I've been reading about the 1.0 spring that most everyone puts into their 2.0.

I've got the 2.0 buggy, went to the LHS today, and they had a 1.0 Truggy Servo Saver Hardware LOSA4407.

Will this work for me in the buggy?

Yes it is a good fix. Since i changed botn my 2.0 over I have not had a problem. The first runs of 2.0 bellcranks were not molded right, the stock servo saver spring would not fit into the molded lip. They fixed the problem since then and now you can buy a new revised bellcrank that comes prebuilt minus the ackerman arm. Part # LOSA4406

Hey Losi Racer, the new 4406 comes with the spring already. I have one at the hobbyshop I work at. Amain must have a old picture.

I bought it about 5 months or so ago.

Maybe it has the fix, I don't know. I just was reading about this fix, and I notice on my buggy, even when the servo is disconnected that it's harder to turn by hand than my 1.0 truggy is. I can post a pic if I need to

Definetly the 2.0 spring is a lot heavier than the 1.0 truggy spring. If you have access to a 1.0, get it. Then tigthen your servo to wear you feel comfortable that you won't break a servo gear set.
