Default JRX-S Servo Saver

I just bought a JRX-S and I would like to put a servo saver on it.

However, the one I bought (the only one I could find locally) is too wide and it will not allow me to adjust the pinion gear properly since ithe servo saver is hitting the motor can.

Does anyone have any suggestions on hor to get around this?

With a Kimbrough servo saver and Ko servo I have no problem with ratio adjustment for mod motors. For 17 or 19 turn, I simply use a 118t spur instead of the box 128t. Another possibility is to work on the servo position, but I think it requires some work on the chassis. Anyway, your question has certainly already been answered many times on the JRXS thread ; have a look there, it is a goldmine of useful information on the car...

Dan, Yes you can use a 118 spur if needed to get the gearing right, or you could also either shave the servo mounts down, or use the AE eluminim ones #1779 they are a little bit smaller and a nice metal tidbit. They will move the servo further from the motor and you will just have to dremel the chasis a little for the servo saver to clear.

what you could try is to shave down the little nub on the kimbrough servo saver. the lttle nub sticks out maybe 1/4 ", and if you shave that off, thats more room for gear mesh adjustment.
