Default How to properly set your servo saver

I've been wondering about this for awhile and actually have had almost no luck finding the answer to this. How do you know when your steering servo saver is properly set? I recently had some issues with my Losi Ten T's steering......the wheels moved fine under no load but when on the track, there was almost no steering. At first I feared that the steering servo was biting the dust, but then decided to try adjusting the servo saver first (who knows, maybe it had backed off over time). Basically I tightened it enough so that the wheels moved almost as far when sitting on the ground, as they would if the wheels were lifted off the ground.

I am really just flying by the seat of my pants on this though. Can anyone enlighten me on how to have your servo saver properly set?

When sitting on the ground not running your wheels should turn as much as they do when off the ground. The servo saver is there to absorb shock from impacts. Tighten the saver down until the steering is stiff, but still has slight play under extreme force..

I hope that helps..

Awesome, that's exactly how I was thinking it should be set. Good to hear my theory is correct, thanks!
