Try loosining the servo saver. That way it takes most of the impact in the crash not the servo.
If you dont have a metal geared servo get, one their worth the money.

check your epa on your radio. If the servo isn't stopping when the steering ends its putting stress on the servo. Is is whinning when you turn all the way either way?

I went out and bought a metal gear servo, also took the saver apart there was alot of dust in it. The rc10 uses that wedge type servo saver so the dust was locking the 2 halves together. I had some plastic polish that I used on my car's head light lenses, so I polished both pieces, alot smother now.

Thank you for all the replies.
