Default Best way to adjust losi eight 2.0 servo saver

Hi guys,

can anybody tell me the best way to adjust losi eight 2.0 B servo saver

Recently i was racing and kept having a problem with my steering becoming useless while on the track. I know its down to the servo saver spring not being tight enough, but thing is im unsure as to how much i should tighten this to avoid breaking my servo when under impact. Any help would be well appreciated..

Thanks

snug it down but when you twist the servo saver make sure it isn't like rubbing/binding make sure it's a free action. I learned this from a losi pro and boy what a difference.
