They do make an aluminum servo horn that doesn’t rub on the body.

Here’s the 23T version #293497:

We use the Xray graphite one and servo tape.

Works perfectly.

What are most people running for springs, progressive or linear? I see that the 2018 has linear now and the 2017 had progressive.
I just picked up at 2017 and will be running on turf

Stock linear 3 dot front and 2 dot rear is what we use 95% of the time on clay, dirt, astro and carpet.

The shorter springs that was included in the ‘17 kit we never use.

They did not come out as intended and is no longer included in the new ‘18 kits.
