Hey guys I'm in the process of building my kit. Is there a tip to put together the servo saver? I've tried compressing the spring, but there is not enough room for me to screw the bottom cap on.

There is. Put the assembly flat on the bench and push down on the adjusting nut while turning to tighten. It will go.

For those of you running Spectrum servos which one would you recommend for S/T. Also which aluminum servo horn are you using for steering and would you recommend aluminum for throttle as well?

Can someone let us know what is the length of the CVD bone centre to centre (or outside to outside), please? I am talking about the steel option, part no 903 393.

The changes are on the serpent website. New big bore shocks front and rear like the 748WC and new rear end geometry.
