Default Hitec 645 mg servo + T4. Need your assistance!

Hello! I have never touched, let alone looked at a race bred rc like a T4. Well now that I have one headed for my front door step, I need to know:

How do I install a Hitec 645 mg servo into my T4? I read on towerhobbies that the T4 incorporates a built in servo saver? Does this mean that I can't use my kimbrough metal servo saver? Or does it mean that it simply includes one?

Also, if I don't need to use my kimbrough servo saver and I use the one available on the T4, do I need an adapter? The servo came with a kimbrough servo saver adapter and two others (airtronics and one other one). Or is the hitec 645 mg metal geared servo a direct drop in?

Thank you guys so much!

You won't need that servo saver, and it probably wouldn't fit anyways. It's a very small area where the servo horn is. The T4 has a servo savor. With a MG or TG servo most of crank the servo saver down pretty tight so only the harder hits activate it. The T4 is a light truck so it's impacts with the pipe on the track aren't that hard on a metal or ti gear servo.

Okay, so I can throw the kibrough back into the parts bin. Now how do I fit the hitec 645 mg servo into the T4?

Is it a direct fit? Will I need an adapter?

I'd love to have a running t4 asap, I've never harnessed a racing machine!!

Thanks.

Should be a direct fit, I put Hitec servo's in both my T4's without any special treatment. I'm sure the case of yours is the same as the 7955 that I use. The kit includes the correct servo adapters and the manual also states which servo's require the spacers.

See that's the thing, I'm getting this used. I'm not even sure if he's still got it.

What's the part number? I may as well get it from tower...
