not sure what going on with all these servo saver crank arms and servo horns breaking... i've been running my rango for prob 2 months now and have had zero issues and thats running on a high traction track and a fairly rough track with big jumps. And thats still running the stock plastic parts too. I just followed this http://www.team-durango.com/blog/?p=1017 when i built it.

I know what you mean. Some have the issue and some do not. Truly is the craziest thing . . . but I hit the pipe like a crack addict!

I have my RX next to servo and the tabs on the ESC flipped 180 from where you are.

I had realestate issues at first, then went with the Spektrum Micro Rx and all fits easily. Unfortunately had to change over from the HRS only Tx/Rx, but it all works fantastic. Hope the pics help.

i think the servo arm stripping issues have to do with servo saver spring tension as i never had issues til i tightened the servo saver

After looking at close-ups of the servo saver I have some thoughts. Here's my .02 cents:

Maybe it's the angle of attack between the servo arm and the saver, combined with mechanical drag and your particular setup on the saver, are what's causing stress on that part. A tougher part may prevent breakage but not the stress on the bearings and other parts in the assembly. I think the root issue is the angle of attack all the way through the mechanical range.

Could you guys post up the servo and arm you're using?

I agree that the angle is not ideal but if you have seen one of the broken servo saver parts, you'll notice there is practically no material there. It is in no way a strong part. I tossed all on mine out so I can't take a picture.

Now I didn't have the problems others have had with the parts breaking but I went ahead an upgraded it anyways because it is a weak link. As soon as I put the aluminum Servo Saver on I stripped out the servo arm. Makes that the next weakest link. Put on the aluminum servo arm and haven't had a problem yet.

Now is there a "next" weak link? I honestly don't think so. The linkage is solid now and the servo saver can still do its job like its supposed to do. I run a servo that is up to the task of an 1/8th scale buggy (ACE1015) so I really do not worry about being able to handle a solid linkage.
