luckily no one was injured..especially my wife and my precious 2yo son.

the driver just rammed into the rear end without breaking.... he was driving a F250 service van... something must of been up...police hand-cuffed him and hauled his ass to jail....

Insurance will fully replace the van...
Seems like we have the same bday

If you built the SD from new, you should have have the part you need to do this simple mod. The servo is rotated 90 degrees from it's normal position and this brings the weight of it further forward and closer to the centre of the car.

To do it , you'll need to either remove the middle deck of the chassis OR trim off the mounting lugs on one side of your servo.

Remove both the steering bellcranks form the car. On the standard setup, the saver is on the right side of the car. What you'll be doing is putting it back on the left side of the car AND you'll also need to substitute servo saver PART D for PART C - you should still have this left over in your box. Attach the ball stud. This puts the servo saver arm at 180 degrees instead of 90 degrees like the standard set-up. You'll still be using the existing horn and link from the servo. The link will connect to the bellcrank OVER the propshaft.

Put the servo on the chassis in the correct position (and away from the very edge of the chassis), ensuring the horn is in-line with the ballstud on the servo saver. You'll need to very carefully mark the chassis where the 2 holes need to go for the servo mount M3 counter sunk screws. To counter sink the holes properly, you'll need to use a proper counter sink bit. OR you can just very carefully make you own countersink hole using a large drill bit OR just use a dremmel and use some 'artistic' flair. Remember though it's your chassis - don't blame anyone else if you put a dirty great hole in it

Use the pictures as a guide - it's a very simple mod, but just be careful drilling your holes - you'll only want to drill them once else your chassis will start to look a mess.

Since I've just rebuilt the car, I thought I'd check the ride height etc.

I got the ride height to 5mm all round to start off with. Now on my SSG, to acheive this I had to have considerably more pre-load on the left side of the car.

On the RS chassis, the pre-load is much closer to even both sides.

Why is this?

Instead of drilling holes in your chassis, you can shoe-goo the servo in place.

Dont know, but I built that car on a flat surface, and made sure the countersunk holes on the top deck were perfectly aligned when I glued the decks together

Ya with my servo mod I just used servo tape to hold the servo down then ran a bead of shoe goo around the servo, Worked awesome.

Ive ejected a servo by mounting it with shoe goo, I recommend drilling and countersinking some holes.

From what I've seen, they are pretty good quality, very lightweight, good way to shave some grams off your car and kill some rotating mass.

Is the color the same as the aluminum from yokomo? cuz in many pictures, it seems a shade lighter (almost like teal and blue mixed)

The color match is not exactly the same.
