Default XXX-T servo brace same as XXX brace?

Are the servo brace that goes on XXX-T, MF1, MF2 same as the ones that go on XXX buggies?

Do you mean the part that goes over the servo with 4 bolts, has the nub for the battery strap? I think that is the same part. The chassis and battery strap are longer.

They are the same on all the XXX-T & XXX 2wd versions... unfortunately they only come with a chassis.... some are plastic and some are graphite.

You can get a cool one from X Factory that has neat little stand offs on it to mount your transponder.

Probably a good time to point out that you should grind the battery strap hole out some to the rear. So when the chassis flexes it doesn't snap off the nub on the brace. Only time I have seen them break. Can break the battery strap too.

I'm glad you can buy the battery brace by itself, unlike servo braces.

Have you opened up the battery strap hole towards the rear some? It's fairly rare for this part to break, unless the battery strap is getting jammed when the chassis flexes. Needs to have a little room to give.
