Default Servo Savers

I was wondering (as always ) what would be the best servo saver. I am looking for one that would work for 1/12th scale and does not fall apart. I have been using the Kimbrough ones and have had bad luck. They constantly fall apart. Because of this, I have about enough parts to make 2 servo savers. If I had the springs I could have about 15. So now I get to the second part of my question... Can I rebuild my servo savers? If I can, is it possible to buy the springs sepertate? Links to tourtals would be helpful. Thanks ahead of time.

Thumbs up TRY it... You'll Like It! ;)

Here's a great idea... I do this & it works great!

There's a center hole on the backside of a Kimborough servo saver.. just above where the spline mount is. Tap the hole through the front side.

Then push a round toothpick through the hole and trim off the excess.

This will take out ALL of the steering slop ("spring slop") out of your steering. You will FEEL the difference when you drive. MUCH more reactive steering.

If you hit something hard enough... it will snap the toothpick in half (still saving your servo).

If you do break the tooth pick - just drill it out and replace it.

TRY it... You'll Like It!

Thanks. I will try it, but it really won't help keeping the servo saver together on impact.
