I like them because they shine, I've never had an issue with stock servo horns.

I use a Dynamite aluminum horn on my T4 as well, not so much for the strength (although that's a definate plus) but for the added speed. I'm using a Futaba metal-gear servo with...I can't remember...well, more torque than I need, and this Dynamite horn has a hole that's "1 more" than the stock plastic horn. So I played the geometry game, took a little dual-rate out of my radio to compensate, and now I've got better steering response.

First tried it on my GT2 and loved it

ive got them on all of my cars. you can get them from OFNA, they have all the inserts to fit, and you can get them in most any color.

I wouldn't recommend one. With the speed the cars go it leads to large impacts if it goes wrong so you need a strategic sacraficial component. A plastic horn is much cheaper and easier to replace than a new servo.
