true, but back then it was mostly the servo being weak because I had a battery going out. I replaced the battery and tightened the servo saver. It made all the difference in the world until the saver loosened itself again. I guess I'll try locktighting it this time.

I run a bead of CA glue around the retainer ring. It holds it tight but you can still move it if you have to. Someone told me about that awhile back and I've been doing it ever since. Flawless.

You have to FIRST get a Engine to run more than 3 minutes to even try and get your Servo Saver to loosen up!!!! They DON'T Loosen up on a Starter Box
