Default finally happened

well after only my second run (partly into actually) i too have become victim of "cheap plastic servo saver junk"! Call it a bad design, cheap plastic, or both i'm not a ahppy little camper. Funny thing is i was weaving in and out of a S type section when i lost my steering. I'm sure that's just the place it decided to let go and was stressed/cracked already but look at these pics, like new!! Anyone want to buy a slightly use servo saver HAHA!


a very nice and clean crack if you ask me...

So i sent a email out to tresrey support, how long does it usually take for them to respond to emails? should i get any other must haves from them (not just for pling)?

Did you set your epa correctly ? Anything binding ? I know some have broken them but many are still using the original , including me . Not sure how or why some are breaking them and is not from cheap plastic or a bad design .

Yes epa was done an i did have to back it off. No binding, i double checked for smoothness with out motor so to get a good feel/sound of the drive train. I did tumble once end over end. But the side that it broke, and i'm going out on a limb, is probably the same side as most others that have broke the saver.

I ran mine for 10 months no problems indoors and out. I just switched to the aluminium one for piece of mind. But that does look like where all the others are breaking as well. I still think it happens when it unlocks and hits the servo....

Its not a good part. get the aluminum one and be done with it. Danger order mine with his but they got here in like 3 days. You should see if any other locals need one before ordering so you can split up the shipping.

I think the shipping was $15 for a $15 part. But we split it up between 3 of us so not bad at all. Plus I am sure if you had some extras you could unload them hear as well.

I am currently building my 410 and I just recently finished building a b4. I noticed the servo saver spring seems softer for the b4 than for the durango. I have not tested this by any sort of measurement; only by feel. Also the instructions for the durango do not call for grease on the saver plastic, the b4 does. So my GUESS is that people are adjusting these things too tight which leads to a static coefficient of friction on those ungreased durango plastic savers that is so high that they are essentily "locked out". I doubt the plastic was designed to take that sort of stress. If you look at the crack, it was apparently from the top down (widest at the top) meaning that the aluminum hex put too much torque on the plastic (that or it was over tightened, which is the same problem anyhow).

I went ahead and greased mine with the supplied gear grease and right now I have it about as loose as it will go. I will tune by feel after build phase is complete.

Even with grease, I believe that over tightening will have a similar effect...

The not so simple problem is that the instruction manual indicates that this shim is a 5X10X.8 mm shim and the corresponding replacement part that matches the part number (listed in the instruction manual - 709001) is a 5X10X.5 mm shim. AH! now what? I called the website that I purchased it from and got transferred to someone else who had trouble talking but managed to say he would call me back..... no call..... I feel like my only option is to take my caliper, go to the hardware store and find a 5X10X.8 mm shim. I just have to disassemble the other diff to make sure that the washer is indeed .8mm thick and not .5...... though I have my doubts that .3 mm is going to make a huge difference. Anybody have a similar experience or some suggestions?

Recap:

Missing X2 part number 709001 from bag b of dex410 2010 spec kit.
Kit instructions indicate 5X10X.8 mm shim
corresponding part number from online distributor indicates 5X10X.5 mm shim
what to do, who to contact?
If anybody is curious about this, I got a call back today from the same guy who was not out of breath this time (they are slammed with tech support). The old shims were .8 mm thick, the new shims are .5 mm thick and they are sending me some new shims.

All to do now is to get the p5 orings and figure out this outdrive shaft wiggle problem...(a few posts back)
