Default BJ4 Servo Saver!

If anyone is using one of these on their BJ4 please let me know what brand and model #! I would rather not "destroy" an expensive digital servo.

It has to be small enough to clear the undertray mounting screw.

P.S. I run the JR Z8450 digital servo

im not running one on my bj4 with an airtronics 257 servo. but you could look into a kimbro servo saver. there is a smaller one that they make that should fit, you may have to raise servo just about 1 washer but if you have to run one that is what i would do.

Ok guys I've got my answer.

First of all...I emailed Jason at JConcepts and he said honestly he would recomend using one and if his drivers start experiencing problems then he will look into it.

Secondly...I just got off the phone with Kimbrough. They informed me that Airtronics and JR have the same spline count...(23). He also gave me a part #113 that is small enough and should work for mine.

Here's the bonus! My local hobby shop has one in stock for a mere $3.60!
