You can remove a small amount of material from the bulkhead. Get a horn specifically for the 22 5.0 and you won't have any issues.

IIRC, Savox servos are based off of Aeronautical designs, whose output shaft locations are slightly different from the typical surface design. This may be the root of your problem. I know it created a bit of an issue in the 22X-4 when it released, and TLR eventually updated the servo mount kit for that. Assuming heís still sponsored by Savox, now that Ryan Cavalieri is withTLR, I would assume that they have, or soon will update the 22ís servo mount kits to accommodate aero servos accordingly.

Interesting. I ran that servo in my 22 5.0SR and it did not rub with the kit servo horn. It was very close, but did not hit.

I run a savox 158tg in my elite, with the aluminum horn for the 5.0 with no issues. Been running for me for 6 months now.
not sure what the root of the problem is, or if itís really rubbing. Mines def very close but it clears.

That is the problem. A servo horn can be a generic item that is interchangeable between cars, but most cars now a days have a horn that is designed specifically for that car and only a horn of the exact dimensions as the stock servo horn will work. An AE horn is not designed for the 22 5.0. Changing the horn to something that wasn't designed to be exactly the same will change steering response. With so many options for servos no car manufacture can give exact spacing for every servo, so it is very important to spend the time to ensure the servo is in the exact right spot. Introducing another variable by switching to a different horn you probably will never get the steering to work correctly.
Pistol123 and D_zeller like this.

Ran into a problem after build was complete, rear suspension seems like it's binding not working properly. I checked to see if it was arms binding by taking off shocks and arms are free but it's when I install the shocks and it seems to bind. Trying to explain as best I can,when I press down the rear suspension it goes back up but binding at the same time,like I would have to bring it up by hand.If anyone to help it would be great. Thanks

Default UPDATE:

Update, figured out what it was, shocks were bolted to tight which caused binding, new to me because I'm used to Associated and I used to tighten them without problems.

Savox servo and aluminum 22 5.0 servo horn will rub the bulk head. You have to shave the bulkhead. -Tim

Edit: In response to someone asking about 3.0 shock shaft and body setup...

They suck balls IMO. The 3.0 setup doesn't have enough pack for me in either dirt or carpet. Save your money and stay with 3.5 if you like some decent dampening. If you like to chassis slap and run super high oil to prevent, then run the 3.0s. This of course is just my opinion. I like a car with dampening, not something that blows through its shock travel...

Mine clears with the Savox servo but just barely. I now have a Protek 160 and it clears no problem.
