Yes actually a lot of poeple do.
I use either velcro(work's great) or servo tape(works great too!)

It works great and gets the job done and holds on VERY good.

THANKS,Shelby

Man are you guys in the wrong forum or what?
Seriously though. As far as off road a lot of guys use servo tape even with mounts. It minimizes servo rocking under load. I personally just take my time and make sure the servo is flush on the chassis. The tape makes the servo sit a little higher.

I was thinking electric ON road. I believe those cars are about the last to use tape to secure the servos. Pretty much everything uses mounting horns of some sort these days. And what doesn't make sense?

I use 1 layer only as a cushion, I didn't even pull off the stuff covering the sticky.. so It will come out easier if you need to replace a horn or something...

I use 2 layers for everything else: esc, cap, reciever. More cushion for the push'n.

i use two pieces of the tape novak sends with their escs, under servos in my t4 and b4....lets you run the screws alittle looser, to help save the servo alittle more in hard crashes, since you torque down the servo saver to help against deflecting.
